Honeycomb paperboard is an incredibly rigid, yet light-weight paperboard panel that is produced by laminating layers of thick paper onto a paper honeycomb core, resulting in a sandwich-like structure with unsurpassed crush resistance and rigidity.

Honeycomb paperboard is best known for its use in hollow-core interior doors. This structure has been commercially in use since the 1950’s when it was used in constructing fuel tanks for Dakota aeroplanes. The technology has come a far way and these days it’s commonplace to see honeycomb bins in retail – just go down to your local Builder’s Warehouse and have a look what compressors or welding kits are packed in: honeycomb boxes!
