Aluminium Composite Panels

Origin and Functions
Aluminium Composite Panels are a stable and flexible material for wall cladding, combining the beneficial properties of aluminium and plastic to provide an economical and yet elegant alternative for modern architecture. Versatile and light in weight, as well as weather and temperature resistant, aluminium composite panels are easy to install. These benefits have led to its wide application in construction.

Being light in weight, thus reducing load on the building, means a low cost for supporting structures and fixing accessories. The added advantage of this feature is that it makes construction and installation easier and more convenient, thus directly speeding up the construction process.
By using colour coating of the highest quality, aluminium composite panels can save costs on long-term repair and maintenance.

Aluminium composite panels can be easily cut, folded and shaped on site using conventional tools and machines. Apart from being adaptable, this leads to ease in installation.

Our PVDF coating is UV protective, resistant against high temperature, weather, corrosion and abrasion.

AL-PE composite panels are elegantly suited to modern architecture. Apart from the readily available colours we provide, we can also produce panels to our client's request.
