Honeycomb Cores

What is a Honeycomb Core?

Scientists have found that the hexagonal honeycomb made by bees is a masterpiece. They use a minimum of materials to build an extremely strong honeycomb, which is stronger than any other shape of structure. Because this arrangement of walls and a continuous network of honeycomb shapes can disperse external forces from all sides, the honeycomb structure is much more resistant to extrusion forces than any circle or square. What scientists have learned about honeycomb structure is that even the very thin materials can withstand a great deal of pressure if they are made into a honeycomb shape. It was Honeycomb's inspiration that led to the birth of aluminum honeycomb panels and honeycomb structural materials.
