“The steady and positive trend of the ThermHex development is a confirmation of our hard work and the important investments. We focus on research and development in order to provide our customers with new applications for polypropylene honeycomb cores. The positive feedback is a sign that we are on the right track,” commented ThermHex CEO Jochen Pflug.

Polypropylene (PP) honeycomb is a strong but flexible lightweight material which provides efficient and optimum mechanical performance in composite sandwich structures. ThermHex Waben manufactures a broad range of high quality core products with a standard density of 80 kg per cubic metre. Currently honeycomb cores are available from 3 mm to 30 mm thickness. Besides, the cell width varies from minimally 3 mm to a maximum of 9.6 mm. Standard thicknesses are 3.5, 8, 10, 15, 20, 23 and 28 mm.

This new type of sandwich material is produced from a single polypropylene film in a continuous thermoforming, folding and bonding operation, which also includes lamination of nonwoven layers and barrier films onto the core.

The ThermHex honeycomb cores are particularly popular among manufacturers in the fields of automotive, shipbuilding and swimming pool construction.
