ARALL (Aramid Aluminium Laminate) is a super-hybrid composite, and there are many factors influencing the performances of the laminate. In this paper, fuzzy theory is applied to deal with this composite. Based on experimental results, the factors which influence the properties of ARALL, including the residual stresses, adhesive properties and adhesive content, are analysed by fuzzy multi-criteria. The results show that the state of the residual stress is the key factor which influences the performance of ARALL. The adhesive properties followed by the adhesive content in the composite also play a role in determining the properties of the composite.
