Bonding solutions for honeycomb sandwich panels

Advantages of honeycomb panels and their uses

Sandwich panels can be formed by bonding two thin skins to a honeycomb core and our Solfre2 honeycomb adhesive ensures that the two skins are structurally adhered to the core, therefore creating an exceptional bond strength.

Honeycomb composite panels are available in a range of thicknesses and provide excellent strength to weight ratio and can be used in a wide range of applications including rainscreen cladding, truck panels, aerospace, automotive, leisure and motorhomes, yacht building and cleanrooms.

Various skins such as aluminium, stainless steel and HP laminate can be applied to the top and bottom of a hexagonal honeycomb core to form a composite sandwich panel when bonded with Solfre2 Honeycomb adhesive. This type of panel offers many benefits when compared to conventional panels such as being incredibly strong, durable and lightweight.

Aluminium honeycomb composite panels are growing in popularity in numerous commercial applications which demand strength, flatness and performance, even in the most extreme environments.

Advantages of honeycomb panels include:

  • Lightweight
  • Corrosion resistant
  • High strength
  • Excellent durability
  • Exceptional tolerance

Solfre 2 honeycomb bonding adhesive

Solfre 2 Honeycomb is an extension of the Solfre 2, two part polyurethane adhesive family and has been specially formulated for manufacturing honeycomb panels and composite products, ensuring maximum bond strength on minimal contact surface area. It combines the unique properties associated with the Solfre 2 range, providing superior bond strength, while still maintaining flexibility.

Benefits include:

  • Thixotropic – Ideal for vertical surfaces
  • Unique Rheology – Allows the adhesive to form a wicking effect on the wall of the honeycomb core, therefore increasing the surface area bond contact
  • Good service temperature
  • Excellent chemical resistance
