A Core Beyond Compare
The automotive industry has been paying close attention to vehicle weight for many decades since it has a direct impact on driving dynamics, vehicle agility, and fuel consumption. The introduction of CO2 emissions targets and correlated penalties continues to spark the conversation with an even stronger focus on weight reduction as a lever to minimize fuel consumption.
The leader in honeycomb core material, Tricel first introduced the honeycomb core material to the fiberglass truck cap industry in the early 70s, and continues as the preeminent cost-effective core material used today. New technologies and innovative uses for the Tricel product are continually being developed for additional interior applications, such as sunroof shades, load floors, and headliners.
