About it's unique structure :
Nomex(R) is one of Dupont(tm)'s leading fiber brand which provides light-weight, excellent heat & flame-resistant solutions. The Nomex fiber is commonly applied in fire insulation materials, its properties are carbonized & thickening when expose into certain heat. The Nomex Honeycomb materials provides light-weight, flexible and tough material but delivers stiff layer when it is sandwiched between 2 plane of woods.   
The main idea of Double-Top (of Spruce) with Nomex inside is to achieve maximal stiffness of the guitar's top while reducing its total weight (because of the hexagonal cavities of honeycomb structures).
While Nomex application in the flame resistant apparatus & clothing has been popular since a few decades but its application for classic guitar's top layer began popular in the mid of 2000s. We believe a German luthier was the first guitar maker who experimented the applied Nomex honeycomb to his guitar's top structure.
Manuel Adalid being as one of a senior Valencia based Spain luthier began adopting the Nomex materials into his traditional Classic Spanish method. The result is a truly Spanish guitar concert quality with enhance volume, wider dynamic range & excellent resonance quality.
