Hexcel

HexWeb® HFT

Brand: HexWeb

Applications: Housings & Enclosures, Marine, Rail & Mass Transit

Product Families: Honeycomb

Chemical Family: Other Chemical Families

HexWeb® HFT® is a fiberglass ± 45 degree Fibertruss® bias weave reinforced/phenolic honeycomb. This bias weave construction enhances the shear modulus properties of the honeycomb core. The shear modulus for HexWeb® Fibertruss® HFT® is about twice that of HRP® (honeycomb made of straight weave fiberglass) and three times that of HRH® -10 (honeycomb made from NOMEX® ). This makes HexWeb® Fibertruss® HFT® honeycomb ideal for applications where minimum deflections are required. There is little change in flatwise compression properties due to the bias of the glass. HexWeb® Fibertruss® HFT® has improved damage resistance and handling since the 45 degree angle of the fiber at the cell wall corners allows greater flexibility. This increased flexibility allows the HexWeb® Fibertruss® HFT® to be formed more easily than straight weave honeycombs, resulting in reduced shop losses and simplified fit up of parts during assembly. HexWeb® Fibertruss® HFT® has improved node bond strength and flexibility that makes it possible to offer a 1/8-inch cell fiberglass reinforced honeycomb. This, together with the higher shear properties, makes HexWeb® Fibertruss® HFT® an excellent core for use with high modulus graphite or other composite facing materials. The potential problem of galvanic corrosion with untreated aluminum honeycomb is eliminated, and the small cell size provides uniform support and bonding area for such facings.

Flex-Core Aluminum Core—Aerospace Grade

Brand: Flex-Core

Applications: Pipes & Tanks, Sports & Recreation, Powertrain & UTH

Product Families: Honeycomb

Chemical Family: Aluminum Compounds

Aluminum Flex-Core® honeycomb utilizes either 5052 or 5056 alloy foil material and is available in two cell sizes. FlexCore® has unique cell configurations that significantly reduce anticlastic behavior and permit small radii of curvature without deformation of the cell walls or loss of mechanical properties. Aluminum Flex-Core® has been developed to allow the designer and fabricator freedom in the utilization of honeycomb for components requiring simple and compound curvatures. Highly contoured sandwich panels such as leading edges and flaps, nacelles, fairings, doors, and access covers, and other parabolic, spherical, and cylindrical shapes are prime Flex-Core® candidates. Duplicate die model and control tooling for aerospace use are also examples of Flex-Core® Applicationss. As with standard aluminum honeycomb, Flex-Core® provides controlled crush characteristics without rebound and thus curved energy absorption units become feasible and economical.
