GLARE®

AMAG provides aluminium sheet for the Glare® composite used in the wide-body Airbus A380 aircraft. Glare® is a multi-layer composite made of 2024 alloy aluminium sheets and glass fiber laminate (glass-fiber- reinforced plastic), which are bonded under pressure. The aluminium sheets may be clad (to prevent corrosion) or unclad. This sandwich material, which is more lightweight and has better burnthrough and lightning-strike behavior, is used on large surfaces of parts of the top skin of the A380. However, the vital advantage of GLARE® is its crack propagation rate, which is only a tenth to a hundredth of that of monolithic aluminium.
