honeycomb is a very lightweight product and it resists to compression,
shear, fire and corrosion. It is made by aluminium sheets bonded in
superimposed layers whom expanded give rise to the hexagonal structure;
sometimes it can be microforated in order to put the cells in
between them. This type of honeycomb is also used as core in various
sectors and used for all those products that need to achieve an
strength / weight ratio. In automotive industry, it is used as buffer,
in compression, because it can absorb most of the kinetic energy.
Aluminium’s rigidity and structural lightness are therefore able to
guarantee products having excellent physical and chemical properties.
