PP honeycomb cores

One of EconCore’s  first licensees, ThermHex Waben GmbH, 
produces ThermHex polypropylene honeycombs cores. These
cores are used in a wide range of applications in industrial lightweight
construction like the construction industry, vehicle and automobile 
production, shipbuilding, sport and leisure equipment and many more.

ThermHex processing

Thermhex polypropylene honeycomb cores are suitable as a core 
material for the manufacture of sandwich panels by laminating with 
a range of skins and by various production processes; i.e. Hand 
laminating for the manufacture of panels with glass-fibre skins, 
thermoplastic lamination or bonding with duromer adhesives.


ThermHex honeycomb cores are made with a packaging film of 
Polypropylene as standard. This prevents the ingress of resin into
The cells during processing, and therefore safeguards uniformity
In the mechanical characteristics of the finished component. 
This also reduces the quantity of adhesive required to the minimum
Necessary. Polyester flees layers on both sides are used to finish, 
Achieving a surface for perfect bonding with the core. To download the brochure click here.
