Manufacturing route for parts which consist of aluminum foam core coated with polypropylene will be presented in this paper. For this purpose the complex 3-D shaped foam cores were manufactured. The cores were coated with polypropylene through the injection molding process. The polypropylene coating closes cracks in the foam core and improves mechanical properties of the part.
