Corex Honeycomb

Corex Honeycomb is a UK based company producing high quality aluminium honeycomb that is supplied worldwide and can be used for a wide variety of applications.

Corex Honeycomb is recognised as a product which possesses an excellent strength to weight ratio. It is applicable where rigid and light weight properties are required and its use is virtually unlimited.

Material Specification

Corex Honeycomb manufacture hexagonal honeycomb from different aluminium alloy grades such as the 3000 and 5000 series. The Corex Honeycomb range can be supplied in a variety of conditions:

  • Expanded or Unexpanded
  • In full blocks or cut slices
  • Corrosion treated or untreated
  • Perforated or non-perforated

Expanded Core Sizes

Standard expanded honeycomb sizes are: W

  • 2500mm x L 1250mm W
  • 3000mm x L 1500mm

Other block sizes are available on request. Depending on the cell size, up to 18000mm can be achieved in the W direction.

Cutting Service

Honeycomb blocks can be cut to thicknesses to suit individual customer requirements. The latest cutting technology allows Corex Honeycomb to supply slices up to a tolerance of ±0.125mm. A minimum slice thickness of 3mm can be achieved.

Corrosion Treatment

Corrosion and non-corrosion treated aluminium honeycomb is available depending on the customer requirements.

Material Properties

Elevated Temperature Performance

Aluminium honeycomb will withstand temperatures between +120/-30° C, although the properties will reduce as the temperature increases/decreases.


Our honeycomb can be machined to form a complex surface with the use of high speed routers. Some single curvature contours can be machined on to an unexpanded slice before expansion.


Non-volatile adhesive should be used for bonding skins to the honeycomb core to prevent possible build up of volatile substances during the curing process. This may be alleviated by using perforated honeycomb.
