Over the past decade, Lamera has been developing and improving an idea sourced from Volvo into a commercially viable product. This product is based on the latest lamination technology, and the result is a unique patented and malleable composite (a sandwich material called Hybrix) that weighs about 50 percent less than conventional steel, but has the same strength.
Hybrix also has 16 percent less environmental impact than stainless steel and aluminum, and 40 percent less environmental impact than copper, viewed from a lifecycle perspective. Recently, Lamera’s team have succeeded in cutting manufacturing costs significantly, offering great potential to Bring Hybrix to a raft of new markets, where superior performance and pricing are critical factors. As part of Lamera’s commercialization process, and to address increased demand from customers, the company will now be investing in a new production line and upscaled marketing activities. Its vision is to revolutionize the sheet metal industry, exactly as chipboard once revolutionized the wood processing industry. Lamera wants to be a world leader in the development and manufacture of malleable lightweight sandwich materials with metal surfaces.
