The Benefits of Aluminum Honeycomb in Aerospace Applications

Posted by Adam Ascione on February 15, 2017

In the aerospace industry, the most advanced, reliable materials are necessary to ensure optimal safety, longevity, and strength in demanding applications.

Aerospace materials must be lightweight to allow for optimal aerodynamics; strong to ensure the safety of pilots and passengers and to withstand the physical forces of flying; and heat resistant to ensure structural changes are kept to a minimum during the sudden and extreme temperature fluctuations that occur at both high-speed and high-altitude flight.

Honeycomb — particularly, aluminum honeycomb — can effectively meet all of the above requirements.

Monel in the Aerospace Industry

Posted by Adam Ascione on September 30, 2016

Monel, a nickel-copper alloy formulated in the 1900s, has become an essential material for engineers due to its combination of performance and workability.

Adaptable to casting, welding, and both hot and cold working, the alloy has become popular for use in many applications and industries.

Monel is generally comprised of roughly 68% nickel and 29% copper, while the remaining variables can see adjustments in order to create different grades including Monel 400, Monel 401, Monel 404, Monel K-500, and Monel R-405 for unique applications
