ACROSS THE WORLD, ALUCOBOND® A2 is the only non-combustible aluminum composite panel used in architecture.

Due to its non-combustible core, this fantastic product meets stringent fire regulations and hugely increases the possibilities when it comes to creative building design.

As with all ALUCOBOND® products, ALUCOBOND® A2 allows for simple processing, is impact-resistant, break-proof, and weatherproof – and above all non-combustible.

ALUCOBOND® A2 is the only non-combustible aluminium composite panel used in architecture world-wide. Due to its non combustible core ALUCOBOND® A2 meets the high requirements of the fire regulations and enhances the possibilities for the concept and design of buildings.

ALUCOBOND® A2, as indeed all the products of the ALUCOBOND® family, allows simple processing, is impact-resistant, break-proof and weatherproof and, above all, non-combustible.

To avoid possible reflection differences (for metallic, special effect, naturAL, and spectra colours), it is recommended to install the panels in the same direction as marked on the protective peel-off-foil. Colour variations may occur between panels originating from different production batches. To ensure colour consistency, the total requirement for a project should be placed in one order.

 

Dimensional tolerances
Thickness ±0.2 mm
Width -0 / +6 mm
Lengths 1000 – 4000 mm -0 / +6 mm
Lengths 4001 – 8000 mm -0 / +10 mm

Due to the production process, a displacement of the cover sheets of max. 2 mm to one side may occur along the longer sides of the panels if not specially trimmed.

Protective foil

  • To avoid residuals of glue sticking to the surface of the panels due to UV radiation, it is recommended to remove the protective foil as soon as possible after the installation.
  • The protective foils and the panel surfaces must not be marked using ink (marker), adhesive tapes or stickers, as the lacquered surfaces could be damaged by solvents or plasticizers.
  • Make sure to remove the protective foil as soon as possible after installation as weathering for a longer period could make the foil difficult to remove.

Cleaning and maintenance

The frequency of cleaning depends on the design and the degree of soiling. For further information, please refer to our brochure.

Storage / Handling

  • Protect ALUCOBOND® A2 pallets during storage against rain, penetration of moisture and condensation.
  • Only pallets of identical size should be stacked, with a maximum of 6 pallets stacked on top of each other.
  • Storage exceeding 6 months should be avoided, as it may become difficult to remove the protective foil.
  • When stacking the panels nothing should be placed in between them, as this could produce marks on the panels.

Recycling

ALUCOBOND® A2 can be fully recycled, i.e. both the core material and the aluminium cover sheets can be recycled and used for the production of new material.
