Foldable canoe at Composites Europe
In addition to the mini-ship, ThermHex will also present its new honeycomb core. It is 15 mm thick and has a cell size of 5 mm. This is unique for polypropylene (PP) honeycomb cores.
This year Composites Europe focuses on lightweight construction concepts and automotive applications. With the growing importance of e-mobility in the automotive sector, the demand for economic and lightweight materials is increasing. The new PP honeycomb core from ThermHex offers an excellent solution for this need. The small cell size also ensures a significantly better surface quality. This means that a perfect surface can be achieved even with thin cover layers.
The additional product variation of the polypropylene honeycomb core is made possible by a new vacuum forming roll. With the new roll, ThermHex also increases resource and cost efficiency and achieves a higher production capacity. A new automated cut plotter also enables the delivery of customer-specific dimensions and thus increases automation within the production, which has just received the current ISO 9001:2015 certification for quality management.
