ThermHex Showcases Lightweight, Foldable Canoe at Composites Europe 2018

ThermHex Waben will display the Onak foldable canoe, weighing only 17 kg, at Composites Europe 2018.

The canoe, built in sandwich construction, can be tested at Stand 7/A03. In addition, ThermHex will present its new polypropylene (PP) honeycomb core which is 15 mm thick and has a cell size of 5 mm.

With the growing importance of e-mobility in the automotive sector, the demand for economic and lightweight materials is increasing. The new PP honeycomb core offers an excellent solution for this need. The small cell size also ensures a significantly better surface quality. This means that a perfect surface can be achieved even with thin cover layers.

The additional product variation of the polypropylene honeycomb core is made possible by a new vacuum forming roll. With the new roll, ThermHex also increases resource and cost efficiency and achieves a higher production capacity. A new automated cut plotter also enables the delivery of customer-specific dimensions.
