Aluminium Composite Panels (ACM) offer the sign exhibition, display and furniture industries, the option of using a rigid gloss or matt surface for their diverse applications.

Aluminium Composite Panels consist of a thermoplastic polyethylene core that is sandwiched between two outer flat aluminium panels. The polyethylene core is bonded between the 2 aluminium sheets providing a very lightweight, smooth, flat and rigid sheet.

The Aluminium Composite Sheet can be coated with a number of coatings depending on the end use, From PVDF or polyester paint. The Aluminium Composite Sheets are produced in a wide selection of colours including gloss, metallic and patterns.

Designers and specifiers need to outline the end use of the Aluminium Composite Panels, especially in building cladding applications where a fire rated and tested brand needs to be used.

All outside cladding installations need to be carried out by certified installers.

Note: Not all Aluminium Composite Sheets meet Australian standards, therefore it is essential to follow recommended guidelines and select materials which do meet the criteria.

Allplastics Engineering offers a diverse range of (ACM) sheets for a variety of industries. In addition, CNC Routing facilities, including two 3m x 2m tables, enable us to rapidly replicate shapes and designs to our customers. CNC Routing is a safe and economic alternative to a laser cutting since not all substructures and thermoplastics can be laser cut.

Allplastics offer their clients brands such as Metaline, Dibond, Signbond and Alucobond.
