ThermHex and Brixtone produce wall panels for 400th vehicle.

ThermHex Waben GmbH, a producer of honeycomb cores for economic sandwich panels and parts, is celebrating the completion of wall panels for the 400th commercial van with Polish partner Brixtone.

Brixtone, a specialist in the production of composite sandwich panels, uses ThermHex polypropylene (PP) honeycomb panels in its Cargopan wall panels with a skin for many van manufacturers including Renault and Iveco.

Cargopan has triple the lifespan of anything else on the market, as it is stronger and more robust because of the unique material and honeycomb shape, said Brixtone. Cargopan is also waterproof and more stable and rigid than competing products because of the honeycomb structure.

“We have had such success with Cargopan due to the durability, rigidity, and waterproofing — it moves the world of wall panels for commercial vans up a league,” said Brixtone’s Paweł Faszcza. “It stands out because it is such a unique product that uses world-class technology.”

ThermHex’s PP honeycomb cores are suited for high-quality products requiring an optimal strength-to-weight ratio. This includes automotive, boat, yacht, and shipbuilding; interiors and furniture; building and construction; wind and solar energy; swimming pools; and prefabricated bathrooms.

ThermHex Waben uses green power for the production of its honeycomb cores, as the electricity comes from renewable sources. The processing and monitoring of the green power supply is certified according to TÜV SÜD CMS Standard 92. This guarantees a reliable and traceable procurement, balancing, and delivery of electrical energy from renewable sources.

ThermHex Waben started production in 2010 and is a licensee of EconCore NV (Belgium), the technology leader for cost-efficient sandwich material production technologies.
