Please choose a category:

Do you also produce corrugated cardboard boxes?

We only produce paper honeycomb panels products, based on the unique “hexagonal” shaped cells structure. In addition, we offer edge protection products made of paper as well as combined products from both processes, such as box systems.

What are your standard sizes?

We produce our products according to customer specific wishes. A classic ‚standard‘ does not exist.

What are your minimum purchase quantities?

Our minimum order quantity for an order is:

– 100 m² for our honeycomb products with a brown top layer
– 500 m² for our honeycomb products with a white top layer
– 1 pallet for our edge protection (packing height of the pallet: at least 80 cm and maximum 150 cm depending on the nature of your desired product)

How does your goods behave when exposed to moisture?

Because our products are made of paper, they are vulnerable to wetness and moisture.

Can I load a honeycomb board punctually?

Our boards can only be loaded on the whole coverage, that means the weight should be spread over the whole board.

Is there a maximum weight load on a board?

Here we can not give you the one and only answer. Surface load capacity and flexibility of our board depend on the desired compressive strength and bending stiffness. Those vary depending on the combination of the raw materials in use. We have honeycomb boards with different cell sizes and cell heights as well as various cover layer papers / liners in stock and combine them according to your wishes. A few more technical details can be found under the heading “Specifications & Data Sheets“.

How do you punch the boards?

Part of the contact talks is also to discuss your customized punching tool, which can punch the desired shape into boards. In this case, one-time tool manufacturing costs accrue for you. This customized tool will be solely available for your products.

Do you have something similar in stock?

Due to the custom made products, we do not produce in stock and do not hold a warehouse.

How long do you need for an offer?

We process your request immediately. You receive an offer, depending on the complexity, on the same working day but at the latest after two working days.

How fast will I receive an order confirmation from you?

Depending on the time of receiving your, it is our concern to schedule your order confirmation within a time frame of one to two working days.

Can I get a hand sample?

No problem: we are happy to send up to two A4 size samples, so you can get a feeling for our products.

Can I get a larger number of samples for testing purposes?

Of course, we record the number of your desired patterns and charge you a lump sum for the number of your desired samples.
