ALUCOBOND® can be bent using a roll bending machine (3 or 4 rollers). Make sure that the feeder does not exert too much pressure. Bending rollers which are also used for bending other metals must be thoroughly cleaned from swarf before processing ALUCOBOND®. Make sure to use only polished rollers free of dents and other defects.
To prevent damage caused to the panel surface, the protective peel-off foil must not be removed during bending. Additionally, the visible surface can be protected by using plastic pads of 1 – 2 mm thickness.
For serial production, please make tests on sample panels.
Important: When bending ALUCOBOND® with an anodised surface, the bent area is brighter.
ALUCORE® is an aluminium composite panel consisting of two cover sheets and a honeycomb core of aluminium.
Following in the footsteps of the world-wide established ALUCOBOND® trademark, ALUCORE® is also a composite material for a variety of applications in transport and industry or architecture, showing excellent product properties such as extraordinary flatness, large variety of colours and high formability.
The aluminium honeycomb core gives the composite panel a high rigidity and an extremely low weight. ALUCORE® therefore provides the decisive advantage where very high demands are made on the material for applications such as façade cladding or roofing, e.g. if exposed to extremely high wind load and for large self-supporting roofs.
ALUCORE® is the first lightweight panel that you, too, will absolutely insist as being: a bond for life.
