Rohacell Hero for Aerospace Applications

About the Rohacell Hero®

As one of the most innovative materials technologies, the Rohacell Hero® offers users with an advanced way to develop aircraft structural core materials that are lightweight, durable over their lifetime and extremely cost-effective to produce.

Through the use of sandwich technology that provides exceptional mechanical properties at a significantly reduced density, the Rohacell Hero® is an excellent option for reducing the weight of all aircraft structural foams.

Recommended uses of the Rohacell Hero® include core material in sandwich structures for the following applications:

  • Aircraft wings
  • Landing gear doors
  • Radomes
  • Vertical and horizontal stabilizers
  • Ailerons
  • Areas subject to surface damage

Product Features

  • Closed cell structure  
    • Minimizes any added weight
    • Takes up only resin in the cut surface cells
    • Lighter finished weight part as compared to traditional honeycomb structures
  • Excellent elongation at break properties
  • Highly robust and durable throughout the lifetime of the aircraft
  • Core damage does not extend beyond the initial impact location
  • Eliminates any potential water ingress
  • Heat resistance: up to 210 ºC (428 ºF)
    • Result of processing and/or curing techniques, since core materials typically allow maximum of 180 ºC (356 ºF)
    • Significantly reduces total cycle time
    • Allows for faster part manufacturing
  • Wide variety of processing types available
    • Autoclave
    • Resin infusion
    • RTM
    • VARTM
  • Sandwich Technology Center
    • Eliminates waste
    • Reduces in-house production time
    • Reduces associated costs by up to 30%
