ALUCOBOND® is the “Original” and has been the market leader in aluminium composite panels world-wide since 1969.
ALUCOBOND® shows excellent product properties such as extraordinary flatness, a large variety of colours and perfect formability. It has been developed as a rigid and, at the same time, flexible fascia material for architecture. ALUCOBOND® is extremely weatherproof, impact-resistant and break-proof, vibration-damping, and ensures easy and fast installation.
As a light composite material consisting of two aluminium cover sheets and a plastic core, the versatile ALUCOBOND® product is a material also preferred in areas other than architecture, such as corporate design, and is widely used in industry and transportation.
Numerous international prizes have been awarded for this successful product. With more than 130 million sq.m of ALUCOBOND® sold, it has proved to be one of the most successful materials world-wide delivering soffit solutions across Asia and the Middle East.
Double-sided tapes (such as the 3M-VHB high capacity jointing systems) can be used for the above applications with low tensile or transversal strength requirements. Velcro tapes are available for detachable joints, for example SCOTCHMATE or tapes marketed under the Dual Lock trademark.
Adhesive sealing compounds
For high-strength and elastic connections we recommend the following one-component adhesive sealing compound: Sika Bond-T2 (polyurethane base). For outdoor use, this adhesive can be used for fastening parts of minor static importance.
Metal adhesives/Universal adhesives
For indoor use, trade fair/exhibition stand structures, machines, etc. most metal or universal adhesives are suitable.
Please observe the manufacturer’s instructions regarding the application and use of adhesives/tapes. Laminating of ALUCORE® panels to other materials may result in deformation of the laminates (differing expansion/bimetal effect).
