VELOX Offers ThermHex PP Honeycomb Cores

VELOX has a new co-operation agreement with ThermHex Waben, as of April 2016, to offer the thermoplastic honeycomb cores range in Europe excluding UK and Northern Ireland.

Serge Gradys, Composite Division Manager at VELOX, states, “We are very glad that ThermHex trusts VELOX to distribute its cores range in Europe. ThermHex’ thermoplastic honeycomb cores are a great addition to our growing portfolio. This new generation of lightweight cores stands out by an improved bonding with glass fibre coats and can be further processed efficiently.”

Jochen Pflug, CEO at ThermHex Waben, comments, “We are very happy to have in VELOX an experienced and established partner on the composite market. With their comprehensive sales network and their market knowledge we trust that VELOX is just the right partner to distribute our PP honeycomb cores throughout continental Europe.”

VELOX explains that the ThermHex PP honeycomb core material is already well established as a material of choice for various applications in different industries such as transport, automotive, marine, building and construction, industrial equipment, wind and solar energy and many more.

VELOX says that ThermHex Waben produces a broad range of core products in a thickness range from 3 mm to 30 mm and densities from 60 kg/m³ to 120 kg/m³. Compared with other material in the market, ThermHex PP cores deliver exceptional surface quality in sandwich components, even when very thin skin materials are applied.

With this new co-operation, VELOX adds that it offers manufacturers of lightweight sandwich components a new cost-saving polypropylene honeycomb core solution. The ThermHex PP honeycomb cores offer significant weight saving, high compression and shear strength, energy absorbance, resistance to moisture, acids and base and are 100% recyclable.
