HYLITE®, the world’s thinnest composite panel, has been assessed in line with our MISSION: TOGETHER. RESPONSIBLE. The product currently achieves a FIVE-DOT classification with a total of 5 points.
The aluminium used in the aluminium cover sheets in HYLITE® is also in part recycled. Aluminium is one of the materials best suited to recycling because regardless of how often it is recycled, there are no detrimental effects on its material properties. We intend to increase the proportion of recycled aluminium in our cover sheets in the future. All HYLITE® panels comply with the requirements in the current version of the REACH & RoHS directives.
As the production of aluminium and the core material polypropylene are energy-intensive, there is embedded fossil carbon in HYLITE®. HYLITE®, available in the thicknesses of 1.2 and 2 mm, is the world’s thinnest aluminium composite sheet. As a result, the energy and material used in manufacturing the material are kept to a minimum and HYLITE can contribute to reducing the carbon footprint.
Our HYLITE® sheet material is used in medium-term interior and exterior applications. The material’s good temperature resistance (up to 150°C for a limited period) makes HYLITE® the first choice for a wide number of applications.
HYLITE® is recyclable, i.e. both the core material and the aluminium cover sheets are recycled and used to produce new material. The material can be separated by cutting it into small pieces using, e.g. granulators or shredders, and then sorting it by type for reuse or recycling. There are standard practices and specialised recycling companies for this purpose.
