8. Is Beelite honeycomb cardboard waterproof?

It’s best not to use your honeycomb cardboard creations outdoors or in areas where there is a lot of moisture. The outer layer of 3D honeycomb cardboard withstands water for a limited time, just like Re-board. 2D panels do not do this.

9. How is Beelite honeycomb cardboard different to Re-board?

With both, Beelite honeycomb cardboard and Re-board, you used to see the grey-brown cardboard core of the material on the side where it had been cut. Possibly not the best look … And so Beelite decided to work with a type of honeycomb cardboard with a neutral, white core.
