NEW LIGHT-WEIGHT MATERIALS FOR VEHICLE BODY PANELS--ALUMINUM/NYLON LAMINATES

Aluminum/nylon laminates are described which are designed for light-weighting applications in stiffness-limited automotive body panel applications. They are light weight, stiff, damage resistant, formable and durable. They appear to offer a cost effective replacement for .81 mm (.032") steelsheet at 1/3 the weight per square foot.
