Aluminum Honeycomb - 1

'TO RAY' Toray Advanced Composites PRODUCT DATA SHEET DESCRIPTION Toray's aluminum aerospace (AAA) grade honeycomb core is available in corrosion-resistant 5052 and 5056 alloys. Designed predominately for use in sandwich structures to produce highly engineered structural components. In particular, the material offers the designer high strength-to-weight properties at relatively low cost, aluminum honeycomb is particularly suitable as a shear carrying core in adhesively bonded sandwich panel assemblies. FEATURES High strength-to-weight ratio Corrosion resistant Easily machined and formed Low cost Perforated foil available Cut to customer thickness specification TYPICAL APPLICATIONS I Commercial aircraft flooring I Space and satellite components I Aircraft leading and trailing edges Helicopter rotor blades Fan casings A wide variety of other applications have been found to exploit the unique properties of aluminum honeycomb such as: Automotive chassis construction Marine bulkhead joiner panels I Energy absorption—crash barriers, impact protection I Air or fluid flow control—wind tunnels, refrigeration display counters I Acoustical absorbers RF shielding PRODUCT RANGE Standard products: The following products are usually available as ex-stock items. Additional grades can be sourced upon request, subject to minimum order quantities and extended lead times.
