Merger With AHT Positions Axiom as a Leader in Honeycomb Products


As a leader in advanced composite solutions, Axiom Materials has a history of combining quality prepreg, adhesive, and ancillary composites with industry leading customer service and innovative design. But there’s always room for improvement, right? Absolutely. That’s why we are excited to have completed our merger with Advanced Honeycomb Technologies (AHT).

The AHT merger positions Axiom as a leader in honeycomb products for a variety of industries, including aerospace, energy, and automotive manufacturing. With the merger complete, all AHT products are now being developed under the Axiom Honeycomb brand.

Axiom Honeycomb will specialize in high quality honeycomb cores that meet or exceed all contractor specifications. Products will be manufactured in our brand new, state-of-the-art facility in Carlsbad, California.

Honeycomb Cores Are Lightweight but Strong

Few designs within the advanced composite space are as exciting as the honeycomb core. The honeycomb core takes its name from a design taken from nature. It is extremely attractive due to a unique combination of properties:

  • Strength – A high strength-to-weight ratio is coveted in all composite applications. With a honeycomb core, that ratio expands incrementally. Honeycomb cores are incredibly strong despite being very light. They are ideal for marine, transportation, and aerospace applications.
  • Rigidity – Honeycomb core products offer excellent rigidity. They do not easily bend or warp, even under significant stress.
  • Insulating Properties – The honeycomb core’s design offers open cells that easily trap air. The air acts as a valuable thermal insulator. Honeycomb cores are also particularly good at dampening sound.
  • Fire Resistance – A properly designed honeycomb core offers adequate fire resistance. Once again, that’s ideal for aerospace and marine applications.

Your company could very well benefit by investing in honeycomb core products. Compare the honeycomb core design to your current design and see what you come up with. We are betting that the honeycomb core could be implemented in at least some of your projects.

A Bright Future for Axiom Honeycomb Products

We are envisioning a bright future for Axiom Honeycomb Products. Axiom Materials and AHT were both very strong organizations under our parent company, Kordsa. But merging to create Axiom Honeycomb should mean exceptional things for both our company and our customers.

We invite our aerospace customers to take a good look at our aerospace grade Nomex® Honeycomb. We also offer commercial grade Nomex® Honeycomb for applications requiring high resistance to both moisture and corrosion.

Honeycomb core products are ideal for aircraft wings, fuselage panels, and flooring. In terms of marine applications, the honeycomb design works well for boat decks and hulls, bulkheads, and other components where less weight and better buoyancy our desired.

Consider Axiom Honeycomb products for:

  • Construction: architectural panels, clean room walls, wall cladding systems, etc.
  • Transportation: truck bodies, high performance vehicles, railroad cars, etc.
  • Consumer Applications: sporting goods and equipment, furniture, large electronics, etc.

A big advantage of honeycombed composites is versatility. We can design everything from panels to small parts based on your exact specifications. Contact us to learn more about the honeycomb core. You might be surprised by its potential to revolutionize your manufacturing process.

Other Axiom Products

While we focus on further developing Axiom Honeycomb Products, we will not forget those customers who need access to our other products. Axiom Materials will continue to produce ceramic matrix composites, prepreg materials, film adhesives, and ancillary products and more.

We are looking toward the future with hope and optimism. Axiom Materials is now better positioned to meet the needs of our customers moving forward. To that end, we cannot wait to see how we can answer the call to supply the advanced composites your company needs. Contact us today!
