Transportation

Typical Applications: 

  • Trucks, Trailers, Semi-trailers (truck/trailer boxes, dividers, doors, aerodynamic side skirts and tail elements, bulkhead, …)
  • Public transportation – buses, trams, trains (interior elements and body panels, flaps and covers)
  • Inner cladding for commercial vehicles 
  • RVs
  • Cargo-containers, ULDs
  • Aircraft interior parts (under development)
                                                  

    Key advantages:

    • Weight-reduction per the honeycomb sandwich panel effec 
    • Cost-reduction per the efficient, in-line integrated production process 
    • Enhanced rigidity 
    • Good toughness
    • Insensitive to moisture and humidity effects (plywood replacement)
    • Improved thermal insulation and acoustic performance
    • Reduction of C02 emissions and minimal environmental impact
    • Excellent thermo-formability
    • Enhanced fire resistance and FST properties​ 

    Most popular honeycomb core materials in these applications:

    • Polypropylene, FR and FST qualified thermoplastics, Polyamide (PA6, PA66, …), …

    Most popular sandwich skin materials in these applications:

    • Thermoplastic composites, Thermoset composites, Steel, Aluminium, Polypropylene, FR and FST qualified thermoplastics, …
