Well, thanks for asking.

I've only worked with the samples shown. It's used to make the big wings on dirt track race cars, that's all I need to know.

The pieces were sheared, braked and rolled on a tool with an 18" lever arm, by hand. That wouldn't be enough to flange the edge of a longer piece. The 90 bend ruptured the outer skin. A bead roller might compress the plastic core, but I haven't tried that.

It's available in 4x12 or 5x10 sheets and it's pre-finished.
