Clean and sustainable energy development is an area Corex Honeycomb passionately believes in. The composite technology employed in our aluminium honeycomb delivers a core material that combines high strength with low weight, highly desirable in the development of wind turbines, rotor blades and turbine core.
Corex Honeycomb and TWI LTD have worked together on an EU funded project to develop an ‘Embedded Early Failure Crack Detention Sensor’. Corex Honeycomb manufactured the rotor blade and TWI provided the sensor with the two sections being bonded together on site. Our aluminium honeycomb was used inside the turbine’s shell due its high rigidity-to-weight ratio and its density being unaffected by changing environmental conditions.
