A lightweight core material that is constructed with hexagonal cells. It can tuned to operate at various frequencies over a broad spectrum. The electrical performance can be maximized for insertion / transmission or reflection loss. Honeycomb absorbers are fabricated from a range of materials including phenolic, high-temperature aramid and fiberglass.
Designed to enhance antenna performance
Ultra lightweight yet mechanically durable
Superior electrical performance
Machined to complex 3D configurations
Why Honeycomb is Effective With our proprietary lossy formulation and loading technique we can tailor honeycomb to offer maximized performance from low to high frequencies. With the construction, configuration and cell structure it offers outstanding reflection, insertion / transmission loss
When to Use: When structural integrity is critical Material weight is a concern High power handling applications Convective cooling is required Broadband performance Frequency Range: 500MHz to 40GHz Temperature Range: -70F to +350F (-56C to +177C) Size Range: Can be machined to complex custom configurations or in sheet form per customer specifications. Also available in various cell sizes .187" and .250" are most common.
