Nomex

 

 

Nomex® is a lightweight honeycomb fiber originally developed by Dupont Chemical for the aviation industry. It is being used by innovative luthiers in the creation of "double tops" (also called "hollow tops").

We carry three sizes of Nomex. The NOMEX and NOMEXT have an 1/8" honeycomb and weigh 1.8 pounds per cubic foot. The NOMEXW has a 1/4" honeycomb and weighs 2.0 pounds per cubic foot.

Nomex is available in larger dimensions, call for details.

The two videos, below, by
luthier and instructor Robert O'Brien
demonstrate double top construction.
