Bi-metallic Plate


is an aluminium sandwich-type panel and 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 work-ability, 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

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


Bi-metallic plates are available in a wide array of compatible and non-compatible metals; with more than 260 metal combinations possible.
