Metalleido-Leichtbauplatten. Aluminiumwaben und Phenolharz-Abstandsgewebe als Trägersysteme für die Dekorkollektionen
1937 – 2015 – Metalleido Components s.r.l. was established in June 2000 by Metalleido s.r.l., a well-known company specialised in the production of phenolic resin-treated and impregnated cotton fabric, which has been active since 1937.
1991 – Metalleido took part in the “Brite” project with other companies (Hexcel, Parabeam, Daimler Benz, Intermarine, just to mention a few). The aim of the project was the study and creation of a new panel with a full three-dimensional fibreglass core.
1993 – Monocore Line At the end of 1993 Metalleido patented the machine for the production of Monocore panels and started manufacturing on industrial scale. The Mitlight panel was the first at the time to obtain IMO 653 certification for high-speed craft. It was a great success with the first MDV series of fast ferries produced by the Fincantieri shipbuilding company.
2002 – Nomex and honeycomb panel line In June 2000 Metalleido Components became part of Abet Group, a company known worldwide for its decorative laminates. The company settled in the new premises in Borgo Fornari, where the new automatic line for the production of Nomex and honeycomb core composite panels was set up.
2008 – Compound and cold glue line The Compound line for the production of sandwich panels using various types of foams (such as polystyrene and PVC) or plywood and other closed-pore materials coated with Abet laminate or painted or raw sheets was installed in 2008. This line is now used only for cold gluing of special laminates. The production of wood-based and compound panels has been suspended.
2010 – Saw machine for aluminium honeycomb blocks In 2010 Metalleido Components bought the saw machine for honeycomb (Schelling), which improves the quality of the cutting process (tolerance ±0.02 mm) and the efficiency of the service.
2013 – Cold gluing machine In 2013 the cold gluing process was fine-tuned on a new machine, so it became possible to produce panels with aluminium treated with protective primer (Esacore AL PU), which makes it easier to glue laminates or other materials (or to paint).
2015 – Merger with Abet Laminati S.p.A. On 1st January 2015 Metalleido Components s.r.l. became part of Abet Laminati S.p.A. and all the machinery and offices were moved to Bra.
Esacore AL is a sandwich panel made of an aluminium honeycomb core and two external raw aluminium skins. Its main features are its high mechanical performance, excellent fire resistance and limited smoke emission, which means it fully complies with ‘Maritime Equipment Directive’ (MED) 96/98/EC. At the same time, its honeycomb core makes it extremely light. This panel …
