3M Structural Honeycomb Core Materials
In transportation industry, the all important weight savings equals cost savings: either increase power or decrease engine size or weight, which in turn decreases pollution.
- Transportation industry, in general, is a source of noise pollution which can only be tackled by materials offering good acoustical properties with respect to both noise and vibration dampening, such as 3M Structural Honeycomb.
- Whether for private or public transportation applications, 3M Structural Honeycomb offers multiple solutions; for example in industrial vehicle bodies (bus floor and wall, truck floor and sleeper cab) or for fitting out specific types of vehicles such as ambulances, mobile telecommunications centers, or professional race cars, just to name a few.
- For the high volume automotive industry ,with its demand for competitive pricing, 3M fulfills its need. When combined with glass fiber reinforced thermoplastics, 3M enables large dimensioned parts to be made like floors or trunk load floors as well as shelving units, in one single operation. This results in lower tool and die equipment setup costs.
