Nidaplast polypropylene honeycomb structures with an 8-mm mesh are used for the core of structural sandwich panels.
Nidaplast 8 is the standard product in the range suitable for use with contact or spray lamination.
The surface coating (polyester non-woven material) enables the lamination or bonding of virtually all types of materials, for use in many different areas: construction, transport, yachting, industrial equipment, sport, recreation, etc
The polyester non-woven material on the Nidaplast 8 provides an ideal surface for impregnation with thermosetting resins (polyester, epoxy, etc.). Thermo-welding this non-woven material to the honeycomb structure ensures perfect adhesion.
The plastic film beneath the non-woven material makes the honeycomb waterproof and limits the amount of resin used.
The honeycomb is made of polypropylene, a long-lasting, 100% recyclable material. The honeycomb structure with a 95 % void ratio uses little material while ensuring superior mechanical properties.
Nidaplast 8 is a lightweight material enclosing a core of air. Its low weight lightens structures.
It can be installed without difficulty. This material is easy to cut, which increases the lifespan of tools.
Nidaplast 8 panels are resistant to water and most solvents and guarantee that the core will not decay or swell if the skin is perforated. Unlike plywood, they ensure lasting results.
Good shock resistance and compressive strength
Nidaplast 8 resists fatigue very well, avoiding all risk of delamination. This viscoelastic material has excellent impact resistance and gradually dissipates shocks.
Thermal and acoustic comfort
Nidaplast 8 with an air core helps improve thermal comfort. The air is also an added benefit for acoustic insulation.
To bear the same load, for a given sag, it is easier, lighter and more economical to increase the thickness of Nidaplast 8 than to reinforce the skins.
