Hylite


Hylite is an aluminum composite panel with a polypropylene core and two aluminium cover sheets.

 

Formit’s standard stock thicknesses are 1.2 and 2.0 mm

 

Its great appeal concerns the extremely reduced weight (65% lighter compared to steel, 30% lighter compared to aluminum) combined with a considerable flexural strength.

 

Hylite offers a wide range of processing options. One unique feature, however, is the ability to 3-D form the material in the conventional way. 

 

The additional temperature resistance up to 150 °C makes HYLITE® the first choice for a wide range of industrial applications.

 

An extra new feature concerns the possibility of using the core of the sandwich construction as a hinge – and one that has been tested for its endurance strength by RWTÜV.
