The trunk floor is composed of a polypropylene honeycomb core and glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite skins. A honeycomb sandwich panel with wood-flour filled PP composite (WPC) skins is an alternative solution.
The laminated honeycomb panel is converted into the final part by conventional thermoforming.
|advantages||Weight saving & long term stability
Recyclability / clean production environment
Short cycle, efficient process-ability by thermoforming
Competitive costs due to the continuous production process and due to reduction of material resources
|material||Honeycomb core: polypropylene
Skin layers: composite of polypropylene and glass fiber
|process||This part is a result of technology developed and patented by EconCore: a continuous, cost-efficient process for production of thermoplastic honeycomb sandwich panels and has been made by Renolit GOR – EconCore’s licensee.|
