custom panels with nomex honeycomb cores




  • Coated with a heat resistant phenolic resin that protects in several ways.


  • This honeycomb is an aerospace-grade aramid fiber constructed from DuPont Nomex® paper.


  • Its phenolically coated and its cell structures allow for expanded flexibility, which also makes it uniquely perfect for use in spaces with strong radius curves.


  • Nomex® is a registered trademark of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company and are used with permission.
