The Versatility of Honeycomb Aluminum Panels in Modular Buildings
Modular buildings are those built offsite using materials similar to the honeycomb aluminum panel, complying with the standards and codes for conventionally built structures. They are crafted under controlled conditions and can usually be completed faster than standard buildings. They are then delivered to the site where you want to build them, ready to assemble.
Offsite construction makes it possible to apply lean manufacturing methods to create prefabricated modules. The modular units can be stacked up or placed end-to-end to build various configurations, and because of their nature, it makes sense to use lightweight, reliable, and durable materials that allow easy transport and assembly. That is why discerning manufacturers of modular buildings use aluminum honeycomb panels to achieve the best results.
About the panels
A honeycomb aluminum panel is a sandwich structure with components bonded by thermoplastic adhesive films. It consists of an aluminum honeycomb core and two layers of aluminum sheets. The materials make the composite panel lightweight, robust, and cost-effective, making it ideal for various applications in modular buildings, such as flooring, ceiling, and cladding.
Honeycomb aluminum panels may be treated with heat transfer printing, powder coating, PE, and PVDF to meet the project’s aesthetic requirements. Some manufacturers apply advanced production techniques to create odd-shaped products with honeycomb cores, such as 3D, 90-degree return, and curved panels. This way, it’s possible to make modular buildings with one-of-a-kind interior and exterior designs.
Build a robust and weather-resistant structure
Modular building manufacturers want to ensure strong and reliable structures for any application, so they prefer to use a robust material like the honeycomb aluminum panel. Epoxy thermoplastic films bond all layers when hot-pressed under temperatures of 150 degrees Celsius. With this composition, the panels are more elastic, weather-resistant, and capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions and temperature fluctuations between -40 and 80 degrees Celsius.
Some honeycomb aluminum panel manufacturers can use a modified epoxy adhesive with an epoxy-friendly coating on the material to enhance bonding strength by over 50 percent. That way, the panels are more versatile for interior or exterior applications on modular buildings.View All
