Starting with a general analysis of the requirements for a successful introduction of new materials, this paper addresses the question of accelerating the industrial adoption of Hylite – a new aluminium–plastic–aluminium laminate material. Despite of the commercial introduction a decade ago the material is not really familiar to engineers and therefore in this paper an attempt is made to fill the information vacuum by providing guidelines on designing with Hylite which are critical to its market success and by demonstrating its established applications, thus sharing the experience in working with the material.
