Potmacore
honeycomb panels

Potmacore is an environmentally friendly and fully recyclable aluminium honeycomb panel with a honeycomb core.

The brilliant honeycomb structure is naturally lightweight and durable

The lightweight, self-supporting, corrosion resistant and fire safe honeycomb panel is ideal for the supporting structures of weight-restricted applications and for module structures.

We constantly develop our products in cooperation with our customers. We can supply thicknesses (h) between 6 and 100 mm at 0.1 mm intervals to meet the specifications of each individual customer.

Deliveries with different dimensions can vary from one panel up to a delivery gross of thousands of panels with no minimum delivery requirement.

Potmacore – panel options

The product code numbers are based on the core cell diameter (d) as shown below.

  • Potmacore 096, d = 9.6 mm
  • Potmacore 128, d = 12.8 mm
  • Potmacore 192, d = 19.2 mm

he stiffness and weights of different panel types are available under Technical information.

Potmacore honeycomb panels

Potmacore

Both surfaces are coated with epoxy primer, which creates an excellent adhesion for gluing, painting etc.

Epoxy-primer coating is always provided as standard, unless another surface treatment is required.

Potmacore C and C/1

A honeycomb panel with pre-painted surfaces with a temporary protection films. C means that both surfaces of the panel are paint coated. C/1  refers to a panel with one paint-coated and one epoxy-primed surface.

Our stock colour is RAL9010 (gloss level 30–35), whilst other colours are available upon request.

Potmacore Lhl and Lhl/1

A honeycomb panel with  laminated surfaces. Lhl means that both surfaces of the panel are laminated. Lhl/1 refers to a panel with one laminated and one epoxy-primed surface.

Digitally printed laminates are also available.

Potmacore V and V/1

A honeycomb panel with  PVC glued on surfaces. V means that both surfaces are coated with vinyl. V/1  refers to a panel with one PVC coated surface and one epoxy-primed surface.

Digitally printed vinyl surfaces are also available.

Potmacore C-PU / 1

Honeycomb panel with an image specified by the customer printed on one aluminium surface.

The other surface of the panel is epoxy-primed.

Potmacore PV

All panel alternatives are also available as semi-finished. In this case, one surface board is attached to the honeycomb core and the other is also delivered but loose.

This enables the making of curved surfaces. The semi-finished board can be bent to the required curve, after which the other surface panel will be glued in its position to create a rigid, light-weight and curved structure.

Potmacore B

The following panel profiles are available:

Bend edge (pos. 1 in picture)

  • This makes it possible to cover the core from the sides with the same surface decor as the rest of the panel. In addition, bending reinforces the edges of the panel and also allows for fixings to the edges. For panels in thicknesses 6–20(25) mm.

Edge thinned panel (pos. 2 in picture)

  • Panel edges are pressed thinner (similar to a plasterboard, Gyproc etc.), when more space is needed for a filler or joint tape at the junction of panels.

Grooved edge (pos. 3 in picture)

  • Grooving of the edge of the panel makes it possible to use a hidden H-profile in the joint of the panels. The H-profile is also available from Potma.

Edge trimming can be chosen for from one to all four edges, depending on the customer’s needs.
