ALUCOBOND® PLUS can be bended using a bending press.  
  • The minimum required radius is r = 10 x t (t = panel thickness)
  • The spring back effect of ALUCOBOND® PLUS is greater than that of a solid aluminium sheet.
  • The die edges should be rounded and smooth.
  • To prevent damage to the panel surface, protective foil must not be removed during bending.
  • Additionally, the visible surface can be protected by using plastic pads of 1-2mm thickness
  • Ideal die width: 2 x t + 2 x protective foil thickness + punch diameter + 15mm
  • Before scaled-up production, testing on the sample panels is recommended.
  Important: When bending ALUCOBOND® PLUS with an anodised surface, the bent area is brighter.
