Aluminum foam products

Aluminum foam panels

Gladly we manufacture AFS panels according to your individual requirements with regard to the dimensions, the surface layers and the alloy combinations. Length up to 9 metres with a width of 2500 mm will be possible from autumn 2015 on.

  • Thickness: 9 - 80 mm
  • Surface layer thickness: 0,65 - 10 mm
  • Flatness of the plates: 1 mm/1000 mm
  • Thickness tolerance: ± 0,5 mm
  • Surface layers alloys: Al 3103, Al 5005, Al 5754,
    Al 6082
  • Foam alloys: AlMg3Si6, AlSi6Cu6

A product with character

The lower weight leads to significant fuel savings: A weight reduction of 100 kg saves around 6 litres of fuel at 1,000 km. The pollutant emissions reduce accordingly.
The combination of properties such as high rigidity with low weight and high energy absorptions assets makes AFS suitable especially for light buiding components in the automotive, aircraft and railway engineering.

  • Strength: A ton of AFS holds 20 times more than a tonne of steel.
  • Stiffness: For bending a ton of AFS 36 fold of force is needed compared to a tonne of steel.
  • Fire behavior: AFS does not burn unlike classic aluminum.

Good looking and inexpensive

For architecture and design, AFS offers more interesting properties such as thermal insulation, electromagnetic shielding, own resonance damping and also boasts an appealing appearance.

Aesthetics with character:

  • stiffer than solid aluminum at the same weight
  • 4 to 5 times lighter than solid aluminum
  • non-flammable
  • 100% recyclable
  • good shielding efficiency of magnetic fields and electromagnetic waves
  • lower thermal conductivity than solid aluminum
