El Monte, California - The Gill Corporation (TGC) announces new Gillcore® HF fiberglass
honeycomb core meeting all requirements of AMS 3715. TGC began developing fiberglass honeycomb in response
to industry demand from aerospace customers around the world. The core is produced with a substrate consisting
of woven fiberglass cloth reinforced with heat resistant phenolic resin for improved moisture resistance over
traditional aramid fiber substrates. It is suitable for high temperature applications requiring a high degree of forming and high moisture areas. TGC processes rolls of fiberglass cloth through the same manufacturing equipment as aramid honeycomb cores. TGC successfully completed all AMS 3715 test requirements. TGC is working with other customers to meet their qualification requirements.
