Aluminium foil demonstrates some distinct properties when used in the construction of honeycomb cored panels and structures. Sandwiched between aluminum sheets, the layers of BT, joined together and expanded into an open-celled honeycomb format, provide an extremely strong yet light core. The resulting panel out-performs competitive materials in strength to weight ratio and lightness, also in terms of rigidity and flatness under load.
The surfaces can be finished according to the needs of the application – aluminum alloys for aircraft components, metal tread plates for floor panels, marble or stone for interior décor, or external cladding, paint or plastics materials for displays or cabinet enclosures.
This material enables architects to lighten building structures and foundations, engineers to save weight in all types of transport – ships, planes, trucks and cars – due to the properties of the aluminum foil core materials.
