Honeycomb Core

Honeycomb core is a material in which large numbers of hexagon-shaped cells are assembled into a “honeycomb” structure. It was developed as a structural material for aircraft and features light weight and high stiffness, and for these reasons, is widely used in general industrial applications.

SAIC has a 50-year proven track record in the manufacture and sale of this material.

Properties:
・Light weight ・High stiffness ・Flow rectification ・Sound absorption 
・Large surface area ・Impact absorption 
・Electromagnetic shielding ・Thermal insulation 
・Other (light scattering, surface smoothness, radio wave transmissivity)

Aluminum Honeycomb

Aluminum honeycomb has a lower relative weight compared to other metallic materials and offers excellent corrosion resistance. With its high reliability certified to meet MIL-SPEC standards, this material finds use in numerous cutting-edge fields.
