ThermHex Waben, which makes honeycomb cores for sandwich panels and parts, says that it has supplied material for 400 commercial vans. According to the company, it has worked with Polish company Brixtone, to make Car-gopan wall panels that are more resistant to damage in case of collision, and more protective of passengers and cargo.

The panels are also more waterproof, with improved stability and rigidity due to the honeycomb structure, ThermHex says.

ThermHex’s polypropylene (PP) honeycomb cores can also be used for automotive, ship-building, construction, and wind and solar energy applications.
