Aluminum Composite is a new decorative material used ever increasingly by developers, designers and architects in worldwide for various applications. The advantages of using this material over conventional material like Stone, Tiles and Paint are far too many.
Aluminum Composite Panel also known to many as ‘Sandwich panel’ consist of a Polyethylene core sandwiched between two aluminum sheets. These panels are very versatile and can be used in many applications.
1) Excellent weather resistance and fire resistance
2) Excellent durability and good torsion strength
3) Lightweight, rigid and superior surface flatness
4) Good impact-resistance and ultra strong peeling strength
5) Good workability, simple installation, easy processing and maintenance
6) Environmental protection;
Raw materials of Aluminum composite panel and Structure
The entire panel consists of 3 main layers are:-
- Top Aluminum Sheet
- Polyethylene Core
- Bottom Aluminum Sheet
The Top Aluminum Sheet is coated with either Polyester or PVDF Paint.
The Core is either Normal Polyethylene Based or a FR (Fire-Resistant) Core which is specially treated for the resistance.
The Bottom Aluminum Sheet comes in either Mill Finish or if customers require we can provide a thin layer of Polyester Pain Coat with (6-8um) backside paint (White Wash or Light Grey Color)
|Thickness:||2.0, 3.0, 4.0 & 6.0mm|
|Standard size:||1220 x 2440 mm, 1250 x 2500 mm|
|Width:||910 mm, 1000 mm, 1500 mm, 1550 mm|
|Length:||Made to order, Maximum is not over 6000 mm|
Aluminium sheets can be coated with polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), fluoropolymer resins (FEVE), or polyester paint. Aluminium can be painted in any kind of colour, and ACM are produced in a wide range of metallic and non-metallic colours as well as patterns that imitate other materials, such as wood or marble. The core is commonly low-density polyethylene, or a mix of low-density polyethylene and mineral material to exhibit fire retardant properties
Coatings system (According to KYNAR 500, HYLAR 5000 standard)
PVDF (Polyvinylidene Difluoride) / color last long for 10 years guaranteed
High mechanical strength and toughness, light weight, extreme rigidity, low and high temperature resistance, super peel strength, excellent surface flatness and smoothness, high quality and good price. PVDF aluminum panel in essence is quite similar to the aluminum composite panel.
FEVE resins (fluoropolymer based)
have a higher gloss and color range. It is the broader range of gloss that allows for FEVE coatings to produce a brighter color palette and retention than its PVDF opposition, FEVE have low permeability to oxygen, water and chloride, offering high degradation resistance when exposed to environmental conditions and airborne pollutants. FEVE resins are easily repairable and are often used to restore PVDF projects that have deteriorated over time.
PE (Polyester Coating) – backside coating / For Interior decoration
Light weight, high strength, easy maintenance, simple cleaning, heat insulation, sound insulation, good plasticity, impact resistance, good smoothness, gorgeous and colorful decorative, decorative pattern and design can be customized.
