Corex Honeycomb – Aluminium Honeycomb for the Rail Industry

Corex Honeycomb is the only UK based manufacturer of aluminium honeycomb core, with over 30 years of experience in composites. Many tonnes of our honeycomb are used in parts made for the rail industry through worldwide manufacturers. When used in a bonded composite sandwich panel, the high strength to weight ratio and corrosion resistance make it suitable for a range of products throughout the rail sector. Corex aluminium honeycomb can be used to manufacture doors, floors, furniture, galley and sanitary modules and panel partitions for rail interiors.

  • Doors and Walls for Train Interiors and Universally Accessible Toilet (Uat) Modules

Both aluminium honeycomb and flexible aluminium honeycomb can be used within composite panels to manufacture doors and walls thanks to their high strength to weight ratio. The way Superflex is manufactured allows curved composite panels with multiple angles to be produced.

  • Furniture for Train Interiors

Aluminium honeycomb’s high strength makes it suitable for use in furniture. Supportive pieces can be made that are less likely to be damaged on a train, without adding too much weight to the vehicle.

  • Flooring for Train Interiors

Thanks to the high strength to weight ratio, aluminium honeycomb is an excellent product for use in train flooring. It is lightweight but also strong and is a fantastic choice of product when manufacturing flooring suitable for rolling stock applications.

  • Galley and Sanitary Modules for Train Interiors

Aluminium honeycomb that is treated is resistant to water and other chemical effects, making it highly suitable for use in galley and sanitary modules.

  • Panel partitions for train interiors

Rail Case Studies

Corex Honeycomb has been involved in many exciting rail projects including: the energy efficient Heathrow Personal Rapid Transit Pods where aluminium honeycomb was used in the chassis and floor of the pods and the Hitachi Class 800 train, working with a manufacturer of lightweight structures.

We also supply aluminium honeycomb to a large rail company which specialises in the life extension, overhaul, maintenance, and refurbishment of rolling stock in the UK and our aluminium honeycomb has been used in train doors for the Eurostar high-speed railway service connecting London with mainland Europe.

The company works closely with a French train interior designer and manufacturer where aluminium honeycomb is used to form train floors, doors and other rail-related products.
