Introduction to aluminum composite panels and a guide to their applications and advantages
What is an aluminum composite panel?
The aluminum composite panel comprises aluminum panels covered by double rings, a more mainstream aesthetic composite material with partitions at present, and its characteristics are very good and widely used. It is sturdy and durable, with high surface flatness, extraordinary high and low-temperature resistance, and moderate and smoothness.
Structural composition of aluminum composite panels:
The panel has a protective film to protect the surface
Aluminum panels are cleaned PVDF covered/covered with a tint
Polymer layer to laminate aluminum to the center
LDPE/FR center in a low-thickness polyethylene or flame retardant evaluated material
Aluminum composite panel thickness:
Typical thickness is 3-6 mm; thickness depends on the polymer film, overlay, aluminum foil, and the result of mixing different materials.
Aluminum composite panel coating:
Aluminum composite panel overlays all contain PVDF and PE, regardless of where. It is almost free of any components, including fluorinated polymers, gum, color, pleated edge fixing agents, etc. All of these create an extraordinary overlay that makes the panel increasingly rigid and impervious to the elements. PVDF coatings are significantly better than PE when it comes to UV, oxidation, corrosion, or acid resistance, which is why they are widely used for exterior landscaping
It is worse at the above show, cheaper anyway, and enough for indoor use. At the same time, aluminum composite panel finish can be adjusted to strong or metallic shades, wood or stone surfaces, brushes, reflections, etc.
What are the advantages of aluminum composite panels?
1. The aluminum composite panel is the solid foundation for creative arrangement.
As mentioned in the previous paragraph, the basis of aluminum composite is easy to produce in a form that is relatively easy to use different materials. Aluminum composite panels also allow you to create a stunningly attractive and practical appearance. The material used for development should be sturdy. In this sense, the magnesium, copper, and zinc mixture makes it sturdy. Aluminum composite panels retain their basic credibility with problems. It can easily be cut or drilled, twisted, and even folded. Because it is so flexible and resilient, it can be used even when other materials are not. They are also very durable, lasting at least 30 years.
2. They are very beautiful compared to other materials made of composite materials
Aluminum is ideal for cladding frames because it falls into the category of lightweight materials. It is six times heavier than steel, making it the perfect alternative material. For our business, we use the lightest aluminum cladding panels available. An example is VANCO ACP, which weighs 5.9 kg/m2.
3. Low maintenance costs
Steel, solid, and wooden partitions have the highest maintenance and exertion costs. However, maintenance of aluminum partitions is almost nonexistent. The panels only need to be cleaned 0.5 times a year in provincial areas, 2-3 times a year in industrialized areas, 0.5 times a year in seaside areas, and 0.5 times a year in urban areas. Cleaning composite aluminum panels does not have to be a chore and is a simple process. For different materials, cleaning experts are a good option. Before you start your cleaning method, it is advisable to consult your contract employee or wholesaler.
4. Practical solutions
To build an exterior wall, aluminum composite panels are a practical option. These panels are light and don't require tons of work and material to be concerned about because it doesn't need to worry about abundant focal points. However, the forcing force and support and installation costs are low.
5. Various shapes, sizes, and colors
We have a wide variety of ACPs in various sizes and shapes. They are suitable for punching, shear cutting, penetration, and profiling. Since they come in various sizes, cutting them to solve a customer's problem is feasible. They come in various shades, but it is possible to align the shade of the board with your company's color scheme in the project.
6. Functional plates
Vancopanel offers a wide range of panels, all with aluminum cladding frames. Most have practical features such as safety against vibration, fire, wind, and heat. Most of them are low-vigor cost. Other amazing features are the ability to resist erosion, the antithesis of spray paint, and the ability to be recycled. Each panel is clear and unique, and, in the end, it is best to contact us to discuss the determination of each laminate.
7. Corrosion resistance
Composite and aluminum composite panels are erosion-resistant and are protected by an anti-corrosion coating. Even if they do not have this coating, they are safe from erosion today. When air exposure, aluminum creates an aluminum oxide layer to protect it from erosion. If your building is located in an area with extreme temperatures, keeping it in optimal condition to maintain the ACP is necessary.
8. Non-flammable development material
As a development material, aluminum is designated as noncombustible. It softens at temperatures over 600 degrees Celsius but is noncombustible under all circumstances. Different veneers have a thermoplastic core that tends to ignite, but they do not use this material in all countries. In our GM Tower venture, we used a noncombustible laminate. The material in between is halogen-free. Finally, it is naturally palatable and does not release dangerous gases when consumed.
9. Fireproof, good thermal conductivity
Aluminum composite panels have good thermal conductivity, making them ideal for use as pipes in heating or cooling systems. Aluminum composite panels have good fireproof performance, which can greatly reduce fire risk.
10. Easy installation
Aluminum composite panels can be connected quickly and easily, eliminating the need for traditional methods such as welding or threaded connections and reducing installation difficulty and time.
Where are aluminum composite panels used?
Aluminum composite panels have many applications and are often used in architectural curtain walls, interior decoration, billboards, transportation, and other applications.
1. Building curtain wall: As an important part of modern building exterior wall materials, the aluminum composite panel is increasingly commonly used in building curtain walls. It has good fire resistance, wind pressure resistance, and corrosion resistance and can be made into various colors and surface effects so as to meet the different needs of designers and owners.
2. Interior decoration: Aluminum composite panels are also widely used in interior decoration, such as walls, ceilings, partitions, etc. Because of its various colors, smooth surface, and easy cleaning make it a high-quality interior decoration material.
3. billboards: aluminum composite panels are also widely used in billboard production, such as signage, display cabinets, light boxes, etc. This is due to the advantages of aluminum composite panels, such as lightweight, easy processing, and convenient installation, which are very suitable for making billboards of various shapes and specifications.
4. Transportation tools: Aluminum composite panels are also used to manufacture vehicles such as automobiles, trains, and airplanes because of their light weight, corrosion resistance, and high strength. For example, aluminum composite panels can be used in the fields of an automobile body covering materials, high-speed railroad tunnel wall panels, etc.
In short, an aluminum composite panel is an aesthetically pleasing composite material with a partitioning function composed of aluminum, polyethylene, flame retardant evaluation material, etc. Its advantages include sturdiness and durability, high surface flatness, a wide range of use, beautiful appearance, low maintenance cost, rich functions, and non-flammability. Aluminum composite panels have many applications and are often used in scenes such as architectural curtain walls, interior decoration, billboards, and transportation.
