WaveCore plastic honeycombs are useful when the rigidity of a component needs to be increased or when there is a high moisture load. A practical example is the reinforcement of a kitchen countertop. WaveCore PET bonded to an MDF (medium density fiberboard) support layer stabilizes the kitchen countertop. This increases rigidity and reduces risk of breakage. The honeycomb is impervious to moisture that can occur around a sink. The honeycomb can be glued directly under the work surface. In this case, the work surface forms the second top layer of the composite panel.
Another application of WaveCore is in air-flow straighteners. Turbulent air flows can be converted into laminar, directional flows with the help of honeycomb structures. They are therefore an important design element for air outlets in ventilation ducts. They can also be used for wind tunnels, filters and in air conditioning technology.
