Aluminium foam sandwich (AFS) is one of the most perspective product versions based on state-of-art material science achievements, being intended to be used in light constructions production in different technological areas. The article is a review, presenting the analysis of the current state of research in this area. The peculiarities of production technique of the sandwich type and their applications in industry are presented in the paper. The advantages and disadvantages of sandwich-connection produced by different production technique are discussed. Some characteristics of physical-mechanical properties of aluminium foam, examples of AFS practical application and perspectives of expansion application area as well are demonstrated.
