alucore-panel

ALUCORE® is an innovative aluminium composite panel consisting of two aluminium cover sheets and a honeycomb core of aluminium.

Boasting the globally recognised ALUCOBOND® trademark, ALUCORE® is also a composite material that can be used for a wide variety of applications from the transport industry to architecture, and has fantastic properties such as extraordinary flatness, a large variety of colours, and high formability.

The product’s aluminium honeycomb core gives the composite panel a high rigidity and an extremely low weight. ALUCORE® therefore has a definite advantage when it comes to projects with high demands on material stiffness – such as façade cladding or roofing where it will be exposed to an extremely high wind load, or for large self-supporting roofs.

ALUCORE® – the first lightweight panel that is a bond for life!

Following in the footsteps of the world-wide established ALUCOBOND® trademark, ALUCORE® is also a composite material for a variety of applications in transport industry and architecture, showing excellent product properties such as extraordinary flatness, large variety of colours and high formability.The aluminium honeycomb core gives the composite panel a high rigidity and an extremely low weight. ALUCORE® therefore provides the decisive advantage where very high demands are made on the material for applications such as façade cladding or roofing, e.g. if exposed to extremely high wind load and for large self-supporting roofs.ALUCORE® is the first lightweight panel that you, too, will absolutely insist as being: a bond for life.
To avoid possible reflection differences (for metallic colours only), we recommend installing the panels in the direction of the marking shown on the protective foil of the individual panels.

Due to the production process, a displacement of the cover sheets of max. 2 mm to one side may occur along the longer sides of the panels.

Dimensional tolerances

Thickness ±0.2 mm
Width -0 / +2 mm
Lengths 1000 – 4000 mm -0 / +4 mm
Lengths 4001 – 9000 mm -0 / +6 mm

Protective foil

  • To avoid residuals of glue sticking to the surface of the panels due to UV radiation, it is recommended to remove the protective foil as soon as possible after the installation.
  • The protective foils and the panel surfaces must not be marked using ink (marker), adhesive tapes or stickers, as the lacquered surfaces could be damaged by solvents or plasticizers.
  • Make sure to remove the protective foil as soon as possible after installation as weathering for a longer period could make the foil difficult to remove.

Cleaning and maintenance

The frequency of cleaning depends on the design and the degree of soiling. For further information, please refer to our brochure.

Storage / Handling

  • Protect ALUCORE® pallets during storage against rain, penetration of moisture and condensation.
  • Only pallets of identical size should be stacked, with a maximum of 6 pallets stacked on top of each other.
    The stacking height per pallet should not exceed 2 m.
  • Storage exceeding 6 months should be avoided, as it may become difficult to remove the protective foil.
  • When stacking the panels nothing should be placed in between them, as this could produce marks on the panels.
