Q: What makes Reynobond so flat?

Reynobond’s two thin sheets of aluminum that sandwich a solid core of extruded thermoplastic material are molded together under heat, pressure, and tension and formed in a continuous process with no glues or adhesives between dissimilar materials. Tension is key to flatness; the thin skins have tension applied homogeneously before they are joined with the core.
