Product Properties

Whether your project is a private home, a corporate space, a large public building, or an industrial complex – ALUCOBOND® PLUS lets you take creativity to the next level.

ALUCOBOND® PLUS is a composite panel consisting of two aluminium cover sheets with a hardly flammable mineral-filled core and has been developed exclusively for the stringent fire regulations in architecture.

This next generation product boasts a range of fantastic properties such as surface flatness, formability, resistance to weather and simple processing. With myriad applications ALUCOBOND® PLUS is used extensively for airports, metro stations, railway stations, stadiums, corporate parks, IT parks, high rise towers, malls, etc.

CHARACTERISTICS
ADVANTAGES
Low weight, high rigidity, perfect flatness Low cost for substructures and fasteners, Smooth handling on the site
Large variety of colours Unlimited planning and design
Weatherproof Supplied ready to install
Vibration-damping No additional sound-damping needed
Can easily be folded and bent Simple processing using conventional tools
Large panel sizes, fast installation, pre-fabricated panels Short construction times, adherence to schedules, low cost

 

Due to its composite structure, ALUCOBOND® PLUS can take on many different shapes – think of it like a separate ‘skin’ that wraps around a building’s structure, adapting and flowing with its contours. However, this material’s perfect formability does not affect its stability and flatness – the high rigidity of the panel remains.

 

Lightness meets rigidity

The composite structure of ALUCOBOND® PLUS means it has an impressive strength to weight ratio, no matter if it is a large sized panel. Despite its low weight – which makes ALUCOBOND® PLUS easy to transport and handle – its rigidity helps maintain its shape and flatness, even when exposed to extreme temperature changes.

During the life cycle of ALUCOBOND® PLUS composite panels, no substances containing CFC are set free at any time. The core material does not contain any nitrogen, chlorine, or sulfur. Therefore, selecting ALUCOBOND® PLUS for projects which require environmental-friendly materials is literally a natural choice.

ALUCOBOND Lifecycle

 

Over decades of use in a rear-ventilated cladding system, ALUCOBOND® PLUS protects a building from weathering and the harmful effects of industrial and environmental pollution. It also acts as a barrier against solar radiation; the ventilated space between the ALUCOBOND® PLUS panels and the wall or the thermal insulation reduces heat transmission.

 

ALUCOBOND® PLUS also protects the wall of a building from high and rapid temperature changes; moisture can pass through the wall, yet the building structure remains dry.

The major advantages

  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Long-term preservation of the building’s structure
  • During winter there are major savings in heating costs
  • In summer there are major savings in air-conditioning costs
  • Reduction of thermal expansion
  • Reduction in crack formation

 

Recycling

ALUCOBOND® PLUS is fully recyclable. Both the core material and the aluminium cover sheets can be used in the production of new material.
