Honeycomb sandwich owns the geometry of honeycomb, which is assembled by putting core material in between two thin skins such as carbon or fiberglass. Sandwich structures are used where the attributes such as strength, stiffness and weight efficiency of material are required. These are used extensively due to their favourable properties such as low weight, high stiffness, durability and lower production cost. Honeycomb sandwich can be produced from variety of material as Aluminium, Nomex, Korex, kevler, Fiberglass, Ceramic, Copper, Thermoplastic and Carbon. Increasing demand in aerospace industry is driving the global honeycomb sandwich market. Primary difficulty is to select suitable material and form a bond between honeycomb and the skin. Bending property of aluminium and low-velocity impact are the major restraining factors for the global honeycomb sandwich market.
