Polypropylene Honeycomb Core

Polypropylene Honeycomb Distributor

Tricel Composites supplies a vast array of Polypropylene (PP) Honeycomb Core for composites manufacturing in the UK and Ireland.

Our range is extremely lightweight yet boasts an impressive strength to weight ratio making it ideal for industrial use.

Some key industries which use PP Honeycomb are;

  • Automotive
  • Boat building
  • Commercial and Industrial
  • Construction

The PP Honeycomb has excellent resistance to water, most acids, bases and salt solutions. It is also UV resistant.

The Tricel Composites Polypropylene honeycomb cores are finished with a polypropylene barrier film. This film avoids the resins to ingress into the open cells during converting and in this way assures stable mechanical properties in the finished part. At the same time, the quantity of resin needed for processing is reduced to a minimum. The second standard surface finish is a PET non-woven material, which enables an easy bonding of various types of skin materials with all common adhesives.
