strong, light, water-resistant material
The stiffness of a panel is proportional to its
thickness. Core materials in panels are used to
increase stiffness while adding very little
weight. Hopro Honeycomb is a synthetic core
material that accomplishes this and is
moisture-resistant as well.
Hopro Honeycomb is the ideal material for
use in products which need to be strong and
lightweight at the same time. Hopro Honeycomb
provides the ideal solution, particularly for
products which must also be moisture-resistant.
|Hopro Honeycomb is therefore the material of choice
for furniture, doors, cupboards and countertops in
kitchens, bathrooms or other areas which need to be
|Due to its specific characteristics, Hopro Honeycomb
can also be used in the foodstuffs industry.
Hopro Honeycomb can be used in all sectors in which
alternative honeycomb materials are generally used. But
Hopro Honeycomb has additional unique characteristics of
its own (including the combination of
moisture-resistance, minimal weight and strength), which
allow it to be used in a variety of additional

Hopro Honeycomb is a sheet material which is
manufactured via a mechanical 'weaving and laminating'
process from foil material (ABS or Polypropyleen). The pattern of
holes (circa 12 mm) in between the vertical sections of
foil reduce the weight of Hopro Honeycomb to a minimum
while at the same time providing a high degree of
stiffness perpendicular to the foil. The holes in Hopro
Honeycomb resemble square shapes rather than round or
Hopro Honeycomb can be covered with an additional skin
on one or both sides (e.g. polyester or HPL). The result
is a very stiff construction which is able to withstand
very large loads.
|The foil thickness influences the load resistance.
The foil thickness and the material used for the outer
skin determine the stiffness. If no outer skin is
present, the honeycomb structure has a certain degree of
flexibility, depending on the foil thickness, and the
panel can be bent into the desired shape. Once the skin
is layered over the honeycomb, the shape becomes stiff.
