ARAMID HONEYCOMB CORE ◾ MATTE FINISH ◾ VARIOUS SIZES AVAILABLE ◾ 0.54" THICK
Designed and made specifically by Rock West Composites. Our carbon fiber and honeycomb sandwich panels are intended for very light weight applications. We are currently using a Nomex 3lb density honeycomb hexagonal core. The honeycomb core is 0.50" thick. The two 0.02" twill (fabric) carbon fiber skins are bonded to the core. They can be cut and assembled to create three dimensional shapes, such as boxes or storage compartments, and can be used as bulkheads in aerospace and marine applications.
How Much Does This Panel Bend? We took this SKU cut to a 24" x 24" size and supported it along two opposing sides. We then loaded it in the middle by standing on it. Creating a span of 21" and applying a semi-distributed load of 150lbs. At the non-supported edge the panel defelcted ~0.125".
