What is Aluminum Composite Material?
Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) also Aluminium Composite Panels (ACP) is a type of flat panel that consists of two thin aluminium sheets bonded to a non-aluminium core. The core is commonly low density polyethylene, or a mix of low density polyethylene and mineral material to exhibit fire retardant properties. ACPs are frequently used for external cladding or facades of buildings, insulation, and signage.
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 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.
ACPs are frequently used for external cladding or facades of buildings, insulation, and signage. Structures make optimal use of ACP through its cost, durability and efficiency. Its flexibility, low weight and easy forming and processing allow for innovative design with increased rigidity and durability.
