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