ZEELAND – Plascore, Inc, global manufacturer of honeycomb core products and solutions, announced that the company's PP Honeycomb has received a Lloyds Register Certificate of Approval of a Core Material.
Lloyd's Register Approval provides verification of a product considered acceptable for use in constructions built under Lloyds' Register's survey and helps ensure an appropriate level of product performance. The approval is recognized and valued in marine, offshore and other composite sandwich applications.
PP Honeycomb is a tough, lightweight and ductile polypropylene material that provides efficient and optimum mechanical performance in composite sandwich structures. PP Honeycomb is an excellent alternative to traditional core materials such as plywood, balsa and foam used in the manufacturing of consumer and industrial products. The unique cell structure, the use of a high impact copolymer PP and unique material processing contribute to its attractive performance levels. PP Honeycomb is becoming the preferred core in marine design and construction, appealing to manufacturers of both large and small boats for its performance and ease of use.
Available in a wide range of sheet sizes and facings, PP Honeycomb can be modified to meet specific requirements for strength and stiffness.
