Aluminum Honeycomb Core

Aluminum Honeycomb Core

At the very beginning, aluminum honeycomb materials were mostly used in the aerospace and military sector. Aluminum Honeycomb panel has excellent strength and great performance in high wind pressure resistance, shock absorption, sound insulation, heat preservation, fire resistance, and high strength. Aluminum honeycomb grid core can also be used as an energy absorber and grids in front of spotlights and photographic equipment.

DMC aluminum honeycomb cores are made of 3003 or 5052 aluminum alloy foil.

Drilled Aluminum Honeycomb

The vented aluminum honeycomb core is a drilled core material that perforated in the cell walls of the core at equal distance. With these perforated holes, drilled aluminum honeycomb core permits the correct airflow.

Normally, the drilled core can be used as core material for vacuum tables and for molds in the wind blade industry.

DMC drilled honeycomb core are available in the below configuration:

  • Aluminum Alloy Grade: 3003, 5052
  • Cell Size: 9.53mm, 12.64mm, 19.1mm
  • Number Of Holes: 3 or 6 holes at direction T (equal distance)
  • Drilling Hole Diameter: 3mm-5mm
  • Core Thickness: 15mm-60mm
  • It can be customized according to customer requirements
