The product is an aramid polymer with a particularly stable molecular structure. It is obtained from different forms of aramid polymer.

Non-metallic honeycombs are manufactured from high temperature resistant aramid paper formed into a honeycomb structure and coated with a phenolic resin. The combination of aramid paper and phenolic resin gives commercial and aero grade of honeycomb with superior strength, toughness and chemical resistance.

The honeycomb cell shapes are normally hexagonal for optimum mechanical properties. It can also be over-expanded to produce a rectangular cell shape and provide improved drapeability for the production of curved parts.

This material data has been provided by Matmatch.

"Typical" values were obtained via a literature search. "Predicted" values were imputed via artificial intelligence technology. While we have placed significant efforts in ensuring data accuracy, "typical" and "predicted" data should be considered indicative and verified by appropriate material testing. Please do contact us if additional information on the the predicted data method is required.
