Flexible Fusion - Bonded Honeycomb
Supracor's flexible honeycomb is an engineered material produced from a revolutionary technology of fusion-bonding. It is a derivative of the aerospace industry which relies on the structural integrity and optimum strength to weight advantages of rigid honeycomb composites. However, unlike aerospace honeycomb, Supracor honeycomb is not bonded with adhesives. Instead, a proprietary, fusion-bonding technique is used to produce Supracor honeycomb from a variety of thermoplastic materials. Because it is fabricated from thermoplastics and manufactured without adhesives, Supracor is the only aerospace-type honeycomb to have "memory," the ability to repeatedly return to its original shape. As a flexible and stable structure, Supracor honeycomb is setting new standards for cushioning and shock absorption in a wide spectrum of applications—from pressure relieving support surfaces to bumpers on amusement park rides
Skin maceration is softening of the skin as a result of continual exposure to heat and bodily fluids or moisture. Severely softened or macerated skin is less tolerant of pressure and can lead to breakdown. Stimulite® honeycomb is perforated, enabling air to circulate and moisture to evaporate which helps maintain skin integrity and keep the body at ambient temperature. All of our Stimulite products are machine washable and dryer safe, making it easy to maintain good skin hygiene.
