The materials are intended for adhesive bonding to aluminum facings using materials and processes defined by Practices E864 and E874, and Specifications E865, E866, and E990. This specification covers five main types of honeycomb for use in sandwich panels, Types I, II, III, IV, and V. Types I, II, and III honeycombs correspond to three honeycomb densities. Types IV and V are similar to Types II and III, respectively, but have lower performance requirements.

The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. For conversion of quantities in various systems of measurement to SI units, refer to Practice E380.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
