Today's rail technology requires lighter and stronger materials to enable the manufacturer to build structures that travel faster with reduced environmental impact. Lightweight applications in the rail industry are similar to those in the aircraft industry where best manufacturing practices utilize Stainless Steel, Aluminum and Nomex Honeycomb Cores to build the best rail car systems. Rail car floors, doors, ceilings and bulkheads incorporate honeycomb cored sandwich structures. In addition, Plascore Honeycomb Core is utilized as an energy absorber in nose cones and rear sections of rail cars to provide a safety feature in the event of an unintended impact.
Plascore's wide range of honeycomb and composite panels offer the commercial and recreational automotive markets many lightweight solutions. Plascore thermoplastic honeycomb cores are used in high volume, production automotive interior components. Combined with a reinforced thermoplastic stress skin, a composite structure is molded into load floors, package trays, seat backs, spare tire and pillar covers. Composite panel structures are also utilized to reinforce other heavily loaded structures such as OEM and aftermarket tonneau covers. Plascore metallic honeycombs are utilized in fluid and air flow applications to improve engine efficiency. In the performance automotive market of F1, Indy Car and NASCAR, Plascore products are used to create composite control surfaces and body structures.
