ALUCOBOND® can be bent using a roll bending machine (3 or 4 rollers). Make sure that the feeder does not exert too much pressure. Bending rollers which are also used for bending other metals must be thoroughly cleaned from swarf before processing ALUCOBOND®. Make sure to use only polished rollers free of dents and other defects. To prevent damage caused to the panel surface, the protective peel-off foil must not be removed during bending. Additionally, the visible surface can be protected by using plastic pads of 1 – 2 mm thickness. For serial production, please make tests on sample panels. Important: When bending ALUCOBOND® with an anodised surface, the bent area is brighter.
