EconCore Technology Lighten the Load in Transportation

July 02 2018

EconCore has established a reputation as a leader in thermoplastic honeycomb core materials and technology. EconCore has licensed its ThermHex process to companies around the world operating in various market sectors. EconCore’s ThermHex process allows users to provide performance-to-weight-optimized materials with a honeycomb structure to higher-volume applications than previously possible. Instead of being limited to low-volume and less cost-sensitive domains, EconCore brings honeycomb structure to mass markets.

Leaders in commercial transportation in North America and Europe are adopting EconCore’s ThermHex technology and offering innovative product solutions to meet the challenges in commercial transportation.

Leading the way in the U.K. is Tata Steel, who is producing Coretinium using EconCore technology which combines in-situ produced polypropylene honeycomb cores with their Colorcoat Prisma pre-finished steel skins. This breakthrough in rigidity-to-weight performance is delivering substantial value to Tata’s commercial transportation customers. One notable example is Cartwright’s new Streetwise Urban Delivery Trailer, deployed in U.K. cities, a half-ton lighter than before due to Tata Steels Coretinium composite made using EconCore technology.

Together with its subsidiary ThermHex Waben and Fraunhofer IMWS, EconCore is putting much effort into application and process developments for the EU-funded project Organosandwich, a material made of thermoplastic honeycomb cores with composite skins reinforced with continuous glass fibers. Organosandwich materials provide another means to reduce weight and improve the bottom line.

Visit ThermHex Waben and EconCore at the IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hannover, September 20-27, 2018. Booth E35 Hall 24.
