A composite core, sandwiched between 2 aluminum sheets, Aluminum Composite Panels (ACP) possess characteristics such as light in weight, rigidity, bendability and durability, which are now popularly integrated into designs for interior and exterior parts of buildings and structures.
Attributes such as flatness, formability with many variations of surface finishes, including stone, woody or just plain colors makes the ACP a very versatile material for architects and designers to enhance their designs.
Available core options
– Polyethylene (PE) Aluminum Composite Panel
This is the more commonly used material consisting of high quality PE core between 2 aluminum sheets with decorative and protective surface finishing. This combination offers weight advantage, flatness, multiple color options, impact resistance, rigidness, low maintenance, sound limitation, ease of forming and installation.
– Stone / Woody Surfaced Aluminum Composite Panel
Commonly used ACP with PE core material, these panels are either solid coated or printed with stone or woody textured surfaces. It provides for weather resistance, easy to maintain and safety, including various surface coating to match or compliment the surrounding.
– Fire-Resistance Aluminum Composite Panel
The core composite materials are designed to emit LOW HALOGEN FREE SMOKE when subjected to fire. This composite material, including a fire resistance plastic core in between 2 aluminum sheets designed for fire safety with surface finishes, still allowing for protective and decorative coatings.
– Light Weight and Rigid
Composite of light and strong structure with a stunning weight to strength ratio comparing to solid aluminum sheet with equivalent rigidity and thickness.
Excellent smooth finished surface and flatness, high resistance to distortion and deflection.
– Impact Resistance
Composite material used for the core are resistant to crack and break, including impact.
Cutting, bending and other forming processes are easily accomplished with standard workshop metal or wood working machines.
– Corrosion Resistance and Weather adaptability
Consistent surface treatment ensures better corrosion resistance and weather adaptability, not affected by change in temperature and weather.
– Color and Texture Options
Panels maybe manufactured with glossy, matt, metallic and brushed finishing surfaces. Other surface finishes, including woody and stone are also available.
ACPs can be coated with either Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) or even fluorocarbon paint finish including pre-formulated standard colors and custom colors upon request.
PVDF Coating prefers because it is more suitable for a series of extreme environmental conditions.
PE (Polyester) paint finishes are also available upon request.
Requires only ordinary metal working and wood working machines, with no requirement for special equipment for fabrication work.
Cutting – Square shears, table saws and jig saws can be used for cutting.
Milling – ACP can be folded by hand after milling a groove on the back skin.
Curving – ACP can be easily cold-bent with a press or a rolling machine with three rollers.
