Aluminum Honeycomb Panels – ALA Series

Aluminum Honeycomb Panels

An all aluminum honeycomb panel featuring hexagonal aluminum honeycomb (ALH-CG) bonded to aluminum face material. Face material is commonly between .020′ and .125′ in thickness—thinner or thicker material can be substituted. The face material can be painted or powder coated prior to fabrication. We offer 20 standard colors in KYNAR 500 (PVDF), several in enamel, in conductive coat, and anodized finishes.

These honeycomb panels are fire-tested ASTM E 162, E 662 and are rated class I. (Zero flame spread, zero smoke generation.)

  • 1/4″ to 6″ panel thickness
  • Face sheets: mill finish, primed, anodized, painted, textured, etc.
  • Cores: Commercial grade aluminum honeycomb, 3003 alloy. (5000 series available, if needed.)
