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.
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.
For outdoor use please note:
- Use aluminium blind rivets that have been approved for construction with a 5mm shaft diameter and an attachment head diameter of 11mm or 14mm.
- Please take the thermal expansion of the panel into account (2.4 mm/m/100°C). To avoid jamming, the hole in the panel must be large enough to allow for expansion.
- With the shaft of the rivet fitting closely to the edge of the hole, the attachment head must cover 1mm of the area surrounding the hole.
- Multi-step drills or sleeves with corresponding diameters are used for centrically drilling holes into the panel and the substructure for centrically fitting the rivet.
- Rivet attachment jigs are used for fitting blind rivets without jamming allowing for a tolerance of 0.3mm.
- Make sure to use rivet attachment jigs and rivets from the same manufacturer, as the height of the attachment head according to DIN 7337 may vary.
- The clamping thickness results from the thickness of the material to be riveted plus an additional value of 2mm to ensure that the closing head is perfectly formed. In accordance with this clamping thickness the corresponding shaft length is determined in the tables provided by the rivet manufacturers. (Lmin = 14 mm).
