Known across the world as ‘the original’ ALUCOBOND® has been the market leader in aluminium composite panels since 1969.
ALUCOBOND® is known for its incredible properties, such as extraordinary flatness, a large variety of colours, and perfect formability. It has been developed to be both a rigid and flexible fascia material for architecture and 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, this incredibly versatile product is also preferred in areas other than architecture – such as corporate design – and is widely used in industry and transportation.
ALUCOBOND® sold over a million sq.m of cladding material worldwide and has been awarded with numerous international prizes.
It is also used extensively by organizations planning to create a new corporate design for retail chains, car showrooms, banks, petrol stations, etc.

ALUCOBOND® perfectly adapts to a building’s contours, flowing elements. It is the combination of formability, flatness, stability, and weather resistance that characterizes this material. Due to its composite structure, ALUCOBOND® can take on many different shapes. Though both stable and flat ALUCOBOND® can be perfectly formed without any loss to its rigidity.
Lightness meets rigidity
The composite structure of ALUCOBOND® means it has an impressive strength to weight ratio, even when compared to large panel sizes. Despite its low weight – which makes ALUCOBOND® 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® composite panels, no substances containing CFC are set free at any time. The core material does not contain any nitrogen, chlorine or sulphur. Therefore, selecting ALUCOBOND® for projects which require environmental-friendly materials is literally a natural choice.
Over decades of use in a rear-ventilated cladding system, ALUCOBOND® 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® panels and the wall or the thermal insulation reduces heat transmission.
ALUCOBOND® 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.
During the lifecycle of ALUCOBOND® composite panels, no substances containing CFC are set free at any time. The core material does not contain any nitrogen, chlorine, or sulfur – therefore, it is the perfect choice for projects which require environmental-friendly materials.
The major advantages
- There are lower maintenance costs
- There is the 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
- There is a reduction of thermal expansion
- There is a reduction in crack formation
ALUCOBOND® is fully recyclable. Both the core material and the aluminum cover sheets can be used in the production of new material.
