Aluminium Composite Panel (ACP; also Aluminium Composite Material, ACM) or sandwich panel is a type of flat panel that consists of two thin aluminium sheets binded to a non-aluminium core. ACPs are frequently used for external cladding of buildings (building facades), for insulation and for signage.

Aluminium sheets can be coated with PVDF or Polyester paint.

ACP is very rigid and strong despite its light weight. Aluminium can be painted in any kind of colour, and ACPs 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 an insulating material no less than 10 cm thick when its use is refrigeration insulation.

ACP is mainly used for external and internal architectural cladding or partitions, false ceilings, signage, machine coverings, container construction etc.

Applications of ACP are not limited to external building cladding, but can also be used in any form of cladding such as partitions, false ceilings etc. ACP is also widely used within the signage industry as an alternative to heavier, more expensive substrates.

ACP has been used as a light-weight but very sturdy material in construction, particularly for transient structures like trade show booths and similar temporary elements. It has recently also been adopted as a backing material for mounting fine art photography, often with an acrylic finish using processes like Diasec or other face-mounting techniques.

The main advantages of ACP are:

* increased rigidity and durability
* low weight
* weather and UV resistance
* easy forming and processing

What is Alucobond cladding?

ALUCOBOND is a light composite material consisting of two aluminium cover sheets and a core made of polyethylene.

This simple but extremely versatile product concept has been developed to provide a façade material with a host of advantages for architects.

ALUCOBOND is stable and yet flexible, has a smooth surface and is available in a number of standard or custom colours. It is weather-resistant, unbreakable, shock-resistant, vibration absorbent & easy to install.

It is the ideal material for facade cladding, roof edges, awnings and fascias.

Why use ALUCOBOND®?

ALUCOBOND is the original and the world’s most widely recognised panel.  Manufactured since 1969, by the world’s largest and longest established aluminium composite producers.

ALUCOBOND has a factory applied coil coated PVDF paint finish; recognised  and proven worldwide as the best architectural coating available today for all climatic and environmental conditions.

ALUCOBOND is very cost effective, even in the most complex situations. Since 1976, numerous prestigious projects have been carried out in Australia using ALUCOBOND
