Aluminum composite panels are made up of two flat aluminum panels held together with a nonaluminum core that functions as glue. In most cases, the nonaluminum core is made from low-density polyethylene. The panels come in different sizes but the standard size is the four millimeters panel. This panel is made up of ½ millimeter aluminum exterior and 3-millimeter core.
Advantages of the panels
There are many benefits that come with these panels. One of the advantages is that the units are inexpensive. This allows you to give your property an aluminum look at low cost. The other advantage is that the panels can be easily cut into different sizes depending on your needs.
The nonaluminum core makes the panels lie flat. This gives the final product an elegant, polished look. To make the product interesting you should consider painting or decorating it. The core increases the flexibility of the units which make it possible for them to easily go around surfaces that other materials can’t. Since the panels are made from a large percentage of aluminum you can easily recycle them once you are done with them or they have been damaged.
Applications of the panels
Due to their many great features, the aluminum composite panels can be used in different areas. One of the applications of the panels is in interior use where you use them in decorating the interior of your house. The PVDF coating on the units is durable thus you don’t have to worry about the panel fading. You can easily fold the materials to any of your desired shape using simple tools. Due to these features, you can use the panels in columns, partitions, noise-barrier walls, rail coaches, false ceilings, interior walls, escalator cladding and many other places.
The tough nature of aluminum and its fire resistant nature makes it ideal for outdoor use. You can use it in different areas such as factory buildings, petrol pumps, bus stands, shopping centers, sports stadiums, airports, vehicles, bridge cladding and many other areas. The flat polished look of the panels also makes them an ideal candidate for signage use. You can sue them for road, safety, shopping mall, commercial, office, school, factory, nameplate, and even direction signage.
Tips to consider when using aluminum composite panels
When buying the units you need to be cautious as there are some companies that are making plastic panels and pose them as aluminum. The telltale sign that the product isn’t aluminum is the low cost. If the panels that you are buying are too cheap than the standard market prices you should raise an eye. There are other products that are made from poor quality aluminum. While these products will resemble the high-quality product, they won’t give you the non-inflammability feature that is common with good quality aluminum.
Different types of panels are ideal for different applications. For the units to serve the role that you want them to, you should install the right ones. You should also ensure that they are installed by a professional.
