Easy to stamp and cut. Total metallic substrate represent less than half that if it were a single sheet.
Bondable with standard structural adhesives. Compatible with hem flanging operations, also accepts induction pre-cure.
Compatible with spray and immersion processes. S-Beam core protects inner sides of metallic skins against corrosion.
|E-COAT BAKE OVEN
S-Beam can be formulated for high or low cure E-coats. During bake cycle, S-Beam achieves high resistance.
|Description||CRS 1.2 mm||S-Beam
2 mm Core + 2 X 0,25 mm CRS
|Behavior to stamping||Good||Very good (before curing)|
|Flexion resistance||38,24 N
Flow limit achieved all over the extension of the specimen
|44,42 N (after curing)
S-Beam only failed over the center of force application, remainder of specimen, preserved dimensional integrity.
|Anti corrosion treatment||Phosphate and ECoat||Phosphate and E-Coat
Inner side of metallic skins are protected by epoxy
S-beam is recommended for doors, hoods, deck-lids and other applications that use structural adhesives for assembly.
|Acoustic and thermal conductivity||High||Low|
|S-Beam is the latest technology developed by Cipatex to improve efficiency for a sustainable mobility.|
|S-Beam (S- means Sheet) is an easy to stamp metallic sandwich,composed by a heat curable core(B) skinned with metal sheets (A).|
|S-Beam provides same stiffness and resistance to flexion than standard metal sheet, with half a weight. Made in aluminum or steel, S-Beam is bondable, recyclable and fully compatible with same traditional OEMs process, materials and layouts.
