High performance technical honeycombs are costly, the lower-priced ones fall short in terms of mechanical performance. In addition, most of the honeycombs available today are very difficult to recycle. Improving these limitations of commercial honeycombs is the main motivation for the research and development of a new generation of fully recyclable honeycombs with a more competitive price/performance ratio.
The main objective of HONEYTEX 2021 is the design and construction of semi-industrial continuous thermocompression equipment for the development of a new generation of honeycombs, optimise the manufacturing process and improve the mechanical and economic performance of the new cores.
VALUE AND COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE
- Honeycombs with mechanical performance at a good price/performance ratio.
- Cores whose base material is carded or air-laid nonwoven.
- Use of recycled materials.
Development of a new generation of honeycombs with optimised mechanical performance with a very competitive price/performance ratio. These new cores differ from commercially available alternatives in the non-woven base material used for their development.
This project is funded by the Conselleria d’Economia Sostenible, Sectors Productius, Comerç i Treball de la Generalitat Valenciana, through IVACE.
