Aluminium composite panel (ACP) is a three-layer sandwich panel consisting of two pre-painted aluminium sheets bonded to a polyethylene (PE) core. ACM panels are an excellent material for indoor or outdoor applications that require good dimensional stability, low weight, and a sleek, brilliant look.
Eye-catching, durable, and only half the weight of aluminium, ACM metal panels are both attractive and practical for use in visual merchandising, framing, archiving, commercial interiors and exteriors, construction, and fine art applications.
Adventurous designs demand ACM for its aesthetic qualities combined with rigidity and ease of fabrication. DIBOND® aluminium composite panels are available in a wide range of color combinations and thicknesses, and are suitable for printing or graphic mounting. Designers and engineers often substitute ACM panels for aluminium sheets or wood in interior and exterior signage, structural signage, architectural cladding, point-of-purchase (POP) displays, exhibits, and kiosks.
Aluminium Composite Panel (ACP) Options
DIBOND® — A longtime industry standard, DIBOND® comprises two pre-painted aluminium sheets (0.012 in thick each) sandwiching a solid polyethylene core. It is the flattest panel on the market, approximately one-half the weight of a solid aluminium sheet, durable for outdoor applications, and well suited for digital and screen-printed graphics. It can be routed and returned to add dimension, or roll-formed to create sweeping curves. Fabrication options also include cold mounting graphics, repositioning vinyl, painting, saw cutting, routing, and die cutting/punching. DIBOND® aluminium panel will not bow or experience “oil can” wrinkling.
DIBOND® exhibits long-term application life in exhibits and kiosks; standard or archival framing; and interior, exterior, and structural signage.
Fire rating: DIBOND® is Underwriters Laboratories® Inc. recognized for UL 94V-0 and is a UL-recognized component for electrical signage. All thicknesses meet the criteria for ASTM E-84 and are Class 1 or Class A materials.
E-PANEL™ — The aluminium facers in the E-PANEL™ material are slightly thinner, at 0.008 in, than those in DIBOND®. It is recommended for flat-panel applications only. It is suitable for cold mounting graphics, repositioning vinyl, both digital and screen printing, and painting. It can be saw cut, routed, or die cut/punched.
E-PANEL™ exhibits long-term application life in POP displays, exhibits and kiosks, standard or archival framing, and interior and exterior signage.
EPL-5™ — The aluminium facers are 0.005 in thick on EPL-5™, which is recommended for flat-sheet applications only. It is suitable for graphic mounting, repositioning vinyl, and both digital and screen printing. It can be saw cut, routed, or die cut/punched.
Like E-PANEL™, EPL-5™ exhibits long-term application life in POP displays, exhibits and kiosks, standard or archival framing, and interior and exterior signage.
Fire rating: EPL-5™ is not rated.i
