Abstract
This discussion is about the use of an inorganic intumescent filler compounded with LDPE (low density polyethylene) and used as the core material for metal composites. The filler is a further development of the inorganic intumescent coating material developed with DREA and NDHQ support. The metal composite was developed to meet and exceed the specifications for currently available, non-combustible siding material for commercial/industrial buildings. Due to the high strength, low weight of this composite were believe it could find use in naval ships for interior partitions, non-structural bulkheads and/or various furnishings, etc. where it would offer significant weight savings. The paper will further discuss a unique technique for forming glass microballoons in-situ in the composite core material, thus achieving light weight while retaining adequate compressive strength.
