Marine » larcore ® aluminum honeycomb panel

larcore ® is an aluminum honeycomb panel with honeycomb core and aluminum skins agencies in a continuous industrial process. The core structure gives the panel its characteristic lightness while forming double-T profile which increases stiffness.

Aluminium honeycomb panels larcore ® have been installed on cruise ships, fast ferries, luxury yachts and other special vessels since years. Their excellent mechanical properties and low weight make them easy-machining materials for applications in outdoor balconies, floors, ceilings, wall coverings or ship furniture.

larcore ® is manufactured through a continuous industrial process able to produce large panels (up to 14000 mm x 2000 mm). Due to the continuous process designed by Alucoil, is maintained a quality control during the production process, ensuring stable mechanical properties in all panels and technical characteristics throughout the lifetime of the product.

Properties:

Sandwich structures are made of two thin sheets or skins enclosing the core. The cores like “honeycomb” have the following features:

        • They support compressive loads and tension.
        • They have excellent specific stiffness and strength.
        • Low weight.
        • Reduced manufacturing time.

The mechanical characteristics of larcore ® contribute to improve in terms of rigidity, lightness, non-toxicity, recyclable, insulation and energy efficiency.

        • Rigidity: larcore ® is much rigid than other materials used in shipbuilding.
        • Lightness: due to the structure of its core, larcore ® is lighter than other solid materials
        • Flatness: because of the materials used and the continuous industrial process, larcore ® panels present an extraordinary flatness.
        • Recyclable: larcore ® is composed only by aluminum, which make it 100% recyclable.
        • Finishes: possible finishes in powder, liquid or primer.
