Packaging material of the present and future

Paper honeycomb’s great properties and versatility make it a true bestseller in today's world of packaging.

Paper honeycomb

A paper honeycomb panel consists of a honeycomb structure core and a surface covering material. The honeycomb core, just like in a beehive, is composed of hexagon-shaped eyelets in which the diameter of the inner circle is measured in millimeters. The core and cover material are sealed together with a water-based adhesive. The result is a honeycomb panel that can be custom modified and designed to your requirements while meeting strict environmental standards.

Aluminum honeycomb

The demand for more sophisticated products such as composite panels with an aluminum honeycomb core led to the foundation of our sister company. The joint stock company of Forlit & Metal is a holder of the ISO 9001 quality certificate and invested more than CZK 50 million in new technologies in 2015.

The main programs of this sister company are:

  1. manufacture of high quality sandwich panels with an aluminum honeycomb core and manufacture of the actual aluminum core
  2. mechanical production using state-of-the-art technology
  3. development and production of single-purpose machines and production lines
  4. tool sharpening and repair, chip machining
