This HONEYCOMB material is made from thin paper formed in specific cell
shapes and sizes, then bathed in epoxy resin to provide exceptional tensile
and compresive strength. With either fiberglass or carbon fiber facings,
these panels make the strongest, lightest bulkheads, firewalls and ribs
of any material available to hobbyists.
We recommend epoxy glues for best results with these materials. CA adhesives
tend to be brittle after curing resulting in less effective bonds.
Fuselages have been made using 3/16" HONEYCOMB sandwhiched between
layers of fiberglass to obtain joined fuselages that are so strong they
require ONLY a firewall as a structural former. (Wing and stab supports
are reinforced with thicker glass or carbon fiber applicaton).
