HYLITE® is an aluminium composite panel with a polypropylene core and aluminium outer skins. Two different core systems mean our range offers great variety for very different applications.

HYLITE® | Ultra-light aluminium composite panel
HYLITE® | The world’s thinnest composite panel with thicknesses of 1.2 mm and 2 mm

HYLITE®, the world’s thinnest composite panel with thicknesses of 1.2 mm and 2 mm, offers another special feature: the panel’s core material can provide a hinge function, which withstands repeated bending without damage. This function is achieved by milling grooves at the same position into both outer aluminium skins. RWTÜV testing has shown that the hinge application is unimpaired even after 80.000 bends. The core material for the 3 mm and 4 mm -panel thicknesses is foamed in a manufacturing process specially developed for this purpose.

The result is an ultra-light aluminium composite panel, and the only cutback is in weight: HYLITE® in 3 mm and 4 mm thicknesses is up to 80% lighter than conventional steel sheets or up to 30% lighter than aluminium sheets yet provides the same flexural rigidity. Its high heat-resistance is a further plus as is its printability. This is ensured by the high-quality aluminium strips which are inserted during production.
