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.
