Screwing

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.

Screwing



Threaded fasteners for outdoor use

For outdoor use make sure to take the thermal expansion of the panel into account. To avoid jamming, the hole diameter in the panel must allow for the expansion. Fastening without jamming is possible using fascia screws made of stainless steel with sealing washer (Fig. 1) that have been approved for construction. The screws must be suitable for the corresponding substructure (please note the information given by the manufacturer). The screws should be tightened with a torque wrench or screwdriver so that the sealing washer is placed on the panel for sealing the bore hole without exerting pressure to the panel. Multi-step drills or sleeves with corresponding diameters are used for centrically drilling holes into the panel and the substructure, and for centrically fitting the rivet.
Important:
Make sure to remove the protective foil from the screwing area prior to screwing.

Threaded fasteners for indoor use

Screws for sheet metal and wood with different head shapes can be used for indoor applications (Fig. 2).

They do not normally allow for any panel expansion. Countersunk screws can be inserted by the usual countersinking method or by depressing the aluminium surface into the panel. When depressing the aluminium surface, the hole diameter in the panel must be larger than the screw diameter.
