thanks frank! your information was helpful!
megan: i am planning to use lightweight structure technology for building permanent structures! how can we honeycomb paper in this case? and in a country like India,where is rains for 4 months, it cannot be used!

Nitish, The notion of "honeycomb" need not be hexagonal in shape. Any type of lattice or matrix (ie material which has an open weave is relatively strong and has integral homogenous strength.)
