HONEYCOMB


Honeycomb alveolar cardboard – Honeycomb production

Honeycomb cardboard, thanks to a strong yet lightweight honeycomb structure, is used in the production of sandwich panels for the production of furniture, doors, interior design, advertising panels, and exhibition stands. It is the core of NIDOPAN®, our honeycomb cardboard panel.

Honeycomb cardboard is made in different paper densities according to honeycomb cell size, which varies from 8 to 30 mm. It may be cut to tailor any needs upon request.

Honeycomb cardboard can be: perforated, continuous unexpanded, expanded.

"Perforated" honeycomb

Perforated honeycomb allows the expelling of steam, which is created within the sandwich panel during the production process of heat pressing. The honeycomb material is microperforated in all its cells during its production. Steam expelling allows higher safety for the final quality of the sandwich panel. This further process is not available for all honeycomb cell diameters.

"Unexpanded Continuous" honeycomb

The unexpanded continuous honeycomb is produced by gluing together single pieces of honeycomb to create a single continuous piece. The length, calculated in linear metres, may change according to client needs. The unexpanded continuous honeycomb is expanded (opened) through a specific tool, which opens it and cuts pieces of different sizes tailored to suit the operator’s needs. The unexpanded continuous type is mainly used by producers of wooden and/or aluminium sandwich panels and by users who have limited storage space for already expanded honeycomb. We can provide the expansion equipment necessary for honeycomb expansion and custom sizing.

Expanded Honeycomb

Expanded (or open) honeycomb is supplied already custom cut both in length and width, dried and wrapped by shrink-wrap film.
