Tata Steel introduces a product based on EconCore’s patented honeycomb core production technology, combining Tata's steel with a polymer honeycomb in a continuous process.

Tata Steel’s latest state-of-the-art product, Coretinium is launched. This innovative product will be a material of choice for the European building and transportation market segments, being one of the primary targets.

Coretinium is combining two high performance materials: an optimised polypropylene honeycomb core which is both light and rigid and two steel skins. The steel faced thermoplastic honeycomb sandwich solution is not only lightweight but also mechanically performing and well insulating material whereas the amount of resources used is minimal. The combination of the Tata’s anticorrosion steel coating technology and the sandwich concept brings very high rigidity to weight ratio and opens new perspectives for the competition with aluminium and other materials.

Tata Steel is a multinational steel-making company headquartered in London, United Kingdom. It is one of the few large steel-makers in Europe. Tata Steel, formerly Corus Steel, is part of the Tata Group.

EconCore is one of the market leaders in technologies for economic honeycomb sandwich production. EconCore’s ThermHex technology allows producing honeycomb cores and sandwich panels in a fast, continuous, in-line process. Due to its high efficiency ThermHex technology is applied typically in mass market applications allowing reductions of product’s cost and weight and consequently reductions of CO2 emissions.
