The deliberate combination of different materials with multiple material-specific characteristics into hybrid composites offers great lightweight construction potential over conventional materials. In this regard, the surface design to customize the adhesion properties of the semi-finished products is a crucial quality criterion for hybrid composite components.

Hybrid composites made from sheet metal and thermoplastic fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) have great potential for lightweight construction applications, as they combine the advantages of both material groups. Additional function integration in such hybrid composite include not only the com-paratively lightweight, but also other aspects such as excellent mechanical and acoustic properties, good thermal insulation behavior, and outstanding crash and impact behaviors resulted from FRP component. From a production-technical point of view, the paintability of the metal surfaces and excellent post-processability of the thermoplastic...
