As a structural material, the high modulus of carbon relative to its weight provides opportunities to create advanced structures for space, aerospace and high performance vehicle design. Ultracor works with its customers to select the appropriate fiber and resin system to meet the performance objective. For customers seeking thermal stability and high thermal conductivity, our superior pitch carbon honeycombs are the state of the art in structural performance. Where strength/weight performance is critical, high modulus PAN fibers may be selected and oriented to give the required benefit, often saving weight while improving mechanical performance over commodity honeycombs.
The below table presents examples of our carbon fiber honeycombs. Additional and custom configurations are available.
ULTRACOR® PRODUCT DESIGNATIONS
Ultracor® products are designated by use of a series of letters and numbers, as follows:
UCF-126-3/8-2.0, in which:
“U” represents Ultracor® HONEYCOMB
“CF” indicates that the material used is Carbon Fiber
“126” determines the product code number under which the details of construction are documented.
“3/8” indicates a 3/8” cell size.
“2.0” indicates a nominal density in pounds per cubic foot. (lbs/ft³)
