AYRLITE®2016 - 1

Glassfibre / Epoxy Faced, Aluminium Honeycomb Panel DATA SHEET Issue 2 Lightweight Panel Systems AYRLITE 2016 is an aluminium honeycomb panel faced with glassfibre reinforced epoxy Strain-hardened hexagonal cell aluminium honeycomb has optimal mechanical properties and is able to carry shear loads at significantly lower weight than foams or other core types. of aluminium honeycomb core. • 6.35mm cell size, aluminium honeycomb • Aluminium honeycomb core meets the anti-corrosion performance. • A single ply facing has 290 gsm of woven glassfibre reinforcement. Any number of • The same number of plys has to be used on both sides, to maintain flatness. • High stiffness and strength. • Wide selection of anodised aluminium assembly extrusions available. • Automotive tooling. • Panels for stone bonding. • Lightweight, high strength models and AYRLITE 2016 can be easily cut and drilled with standard tools such as circular saws, routers etc. Glassfibre dust is an irritant, so the use of a good dust extraction system is recommended. Facings must be clean and free of oil or grease before any assembly bonding is done. A peel ply can be incorporated to maintain cleanliness of the outer surfaces, if required. Components or complete interiors can be fabricated using Ayres Composite Panels aluminium extrusions, cutters and polyurethane paste adhesives. Traditional tongue-and-groove (mortice and tenon) methods can also be used. Additionally, the cut-and-fold method can be used to produce curves or bends: by cutting a strip of skin material from one face, folding to close the gap created and permanently bonding the gap closed using adhesive. A CD is available, showing assembly techniques (contact Ayres Composite Panels for details).
