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 AFP suitable especially for light buiding components in the automotive, aircraft and railway engineering.

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


High safety with low weight

Due to its high absorption power, AFP is particularly suitable to make vehicles or security rooms bulletproof. Only a few layers of AFP prevent a vehicle or a security room (Panic Room, safe room) from attacks with small arms or smaller explosives (depending on the thickness of the foam core and the surface layers). Havel hightec AG offers Safe Rooms to customers.

  • Bulletproof depending on the thickness of the foam core and the surface layers
  • High protection against intruders with low weight
  • Protection against light explosives
  • good shielding efficiency of magnetic fields and electromagnetic waves
  • excellent fire protection properties
