Advanced Honeycomb Panels

Advanced honeycomb panel technology is moving towards more complex, structural parts on the vehicle. The low cost, rapid process achieves cycles times between 1-2 minutes with carbon fiber/thermoplastic core or glass fiber/paper core. Today, designers are realizing the benefits of this technology with a focus on vehicle lightweighting.

  • Package trays
  • Under carpet parts
  • Sun shades

Advantages

  • Highly loaded structural applications
  • 30 sec – 2 min molding times
  • Low investment costs
  • Very fast demold stiffness
  • High elongation & impact resistance
  • Leverage existing stamping assets
