Aluminium sandwich-type panel plays an important role in the shipbuilding industry due to fire protection standards and the necessary weight reduction.

Thanks to its very light weight combined with its economic workability, the composite panel is used – particularly in the interior of the ship – for the ceilings, walls or furniture and in the outer area for balcony partitioning. In all the applications, the material offers optimum strength values at the same time.

Bi-metallic plates

Composed of two dissimilar metals, NobelClad bi-metallic plates provide the best clad solution when it comes to corrosion resistance, temperature uniformity, electrical conductivity, cost-effectiveness, strength, and lightweight design.
