TRB Lightweight Structures have announced the release of an aerospace-grade lightweight honeycomb composite panel designed for aerospace interior applications.
According to the company, Cellite 840 tm panels are manufactured from woven glass with a phenolic resin and a nomex honeycomb core. Available with a full set of test data, they are typically available with short lead times in a wide range of thickness and size. The new design extends the range of TRB’s lightweight composite flat panels which have a long history of use in rail and aerospace applications.
This announcement builds on TRB’s recent AS9100 accreditation.
