Honeycomb Custom Engineered Solutions
Honeycomb, manufactured using custom-engineered kraft paper, is a durable, high-strength packaging material that is resistant to shock, making it ideal for varying transportation and packaging applications. Stronger than corrugated cardboard and less expensive than wood, Honeycomb is customizable and provides a cost-effective solution for transportation dunnage, inner and outer product protection as well as the structural foundation for unitized goods. With variable cell sizes and paper combinations along with die-cutting possibilities, Honeycomb can be modified to achieve desired strength and configurations to suit any application. In addition, Honeycomb can be treated with specialty finishes and coatings for further customization.

*Additional sizes and variations available
Honeycomb is made by joining individual bands of kraft paper together into a series of continuous hexagonal cells. In most cases, the cells are faced on both sides with similar materials to create an exceptionally strong product. Signode’s honeycomb protective products are an excellent option for a variety of applications to create a customized, and cost-effective solution. Our honeycomb is manufactured in a variety of shapes, sizes and options that are designed specifically for your product needs.
Reverse Slit Score/Slit Score
Reverse Slit Score Honeycomb is made by cutting through one facing paper and through the core material and then by cutting the opposite facing paper at another location to create a fan-folding effect in the panel. Single Slit Score is produced the same way but leaves the other facing paper intact to create a folding hinge in the panel.
Cookie-cut Honeycomb is made by creating a slit in both facing papers and a portion of the core, leaving the panel held together by the uncut center core. Runners and small inner pieces can be stacked for ease of packaging and handling, allowing them to be separated easily by gently pulling each piece apart as needed, streamlining the pack-out process.
Die-cut Honeycomb is made by producing panels with holes that are cut through the material in the desired shape or thickness. Die-cut panels can be either glued to a flap panel to create a tray for bulk packing or used to surround an item for inner packing.
Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA)
PSA Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Honeycomb is manufactured with a high-tack adhesive that is applied to one side of a honeycomb panel and covered with a release paper. The paper is removed by the end-user so that the panel can be used as a block support in pallets or inner packaging.
Honeycomb Flat Panels are made with the hexagonal cells sandwiched between durable paper layers. Facing papers and dimensions can be customized for strength constraints and various applications.
Honeycomb Pallets can hold a significant amount of weight and are a 100% recyclable alternative to typically expensive wood or plastic pallets. Our pallets are custom designed and manufactured using corrugated, honeycomb or a combination of both depending on the size and strength needed.
