Collins Aerospace's aeroFIBER™ honeycomb panels benefit from a lightweight construction and have high strength, durability and corrosion resistance. aeroFIBER composite panels combine an aramid fiber honeycomb core with a fiberglass skin for superior performance.

Collins Aerospace designed the aeroFIBER family primarily for aircraft interiors with monuments, partitions, bulkheads, overhead bins and ceilings in mind. Depending upon the application, fiberglass can be interwoven with a phenolic or epoxy resin. The phenolic fiberglass panels provide superior flammability properties, heat release and low smoke emissions.
