Aluminium Honeycomb Panels

An aluminium sandwich-type panel with high rigidity and extremely low weight.

The system components, i.e. the “aluminium core” and the coil-coated “aluminium cover sheets” are bonded in a continuous process. The advantages are product quality and surface evenness; the material does not become brittle-hard but shows tough and resilient properties and an excellent peel strength. It is the ideal material for a host of applications in transport, architecture or industrial production.

Honeycomb Panel

Product Information

The honeycomb core consists of aluminium foils made of the alloy AlMn (EN AW 3003) Cell size is approx. 6.3 – 12.7 mm. The cover sheets of the honeycomb panels consist of corrosion-resistant Peraluman alloys (AlMg) and may be used in a decorative or functional manner, depending on the purpose of application.

Processing

Honeycomb panels can be processed using the following methods:

  • Cutting
  • Milling
  • Drilling
  • Folding
  • Bending
  • Press Forming
  • Jointing, fixing
  • Edge covering
  • Laminating
  • Lacquering, spraying
  • Printing
  • Glueing

Handling & Care

Installation

To avoid possible reflection differences (which does not apply to solid colours), we recommend installing the panels in the same direction as marked on the protective peel-off foil. Colour variations may occur between panels originating from different production batches. To ensure colour consistency, the total requirement for a project should be placed in one order.
