Honeycomb in aircraft when it gets voided from impacts usually is “fixed” by injecting adhesive, but it’s a botch repair usually and can be problematic as it is a hard spot in otherwise a material that has some give, so it can be a stress riser etc.


Debonded honeycomb (My Stiletto was Kevlar prepreg honeycomb) is very different problem from rotted balsa. It may not even be wet, if it is, drying is straight forward, and the interior is still clean, not full of mulch. It's jut a matter of gluing the parts back together. Not good, but not nearly as bad.

(And I'm thinking most of the readers don't understand the sawdust reference!)

Re: Injectadeck - Thoughts?

I was referencing the honeycomb repair as possibly where the idea of injecting a wet / rotten deck came from.
