Description

Product description

Toray’s Nomex® aerospace (ANA) grade honeycomb core is manufactured from Nomex® paper sheets and is coated and bonded together with a phenolic resin.

Designed to offer users and designers high strength to weight properties at relatively low cost, particularly suitable as a core material for production of sandwich structures requiring significant FST performance and using high performance fiber reinforced composites as the facing material.

Typical sandwich panel applications include:
> Aircraft flooring – varying densities depending on level of duty
> Aircraft interiors – ranging from sidewalls, galleys and ceilings, including commercial aerospace, business and VIP interiors
> Cargo lining
> Aircraft leading and trailing edges
> Helicopter rotor blades
> Fuselage components
