Kevlar-Nomex or Aluminum Honeycomb Hybrid Collections

Kevlar-Nomex is a honeycomb substrate utilized in the civilian and military aircraft manufacturing process, normally sandwiched between layers of carbon fiber. We fill the honeycomb with resin of various colors, resulting in a product similar to C-Tek (i.e. aluminum honeycomb, which we also carry). 


These products are made in color batches, with a limited number available from each batch as listed.
