Alucobond is a material that defined the architecture of the 21st century. Material which is used on most of the modern business buildings, commercial buildings, and production facilities. It catches everyone’s attention and became the synonym of 2nd-millennium architecture.
In this article, we will present some of the characteristics and why this material is widely used in modern architecture!
The full name of alucobond is “aluminum composite panel” – it means that these panels are made of aluminum – panels on both sides of the profile with insulation in between. Aluminum panels are usually 0.5mm thick and those are glued together with polyester glue, to create composite panels of 3/4/6/8mm thickness. Insulation is usually made of polyester core (pe) that is integrated into the panel through the “sandwich” process.
Alucobond façade panels can be produced in large dimensions and those are very easy for mounting, these are very resistible to different atmospheric influences, with awesome thermal and fire-resistive properties. But the key success of alucobond is reflected in the best price-quality ratio.
This material is easy-processing, adaptable to any curve or design of the building – that’s the reason why pillars, canopies, and other difficult shapes are covered with alucobond.
The most used color of alucobond panels is grey – metallic color, and it’s very typical for modern commercial buildings and production facilities. Alucobond can be also produced in different colors and designs to achieve natural materials such as wood or marble. The finish can be plasticized, double-sided or anodized.
Alubond is considered as the waterproof material, it’s very firm and impact-resistant (depending on the thickness), it absorbs vibrations well, and it’s very resistible to toxic gases from industrial facilities. As is the case with other products of aluminum, alucobond is completely recycling.
Sound insulation is another great characteristic of this material. This material reduces the noise levels in the range from 23 to 25 dB – this is another reason why this material is used for facades in urban zones (with high traffic) and industrial facilities.
Above all mentioned benefits and characteristics, alucobond meets fire-proof requirements (class B2 / DIN-U 4102), and it has thermal dilatation of 2.7mm under temperature difference of 100 degrees (Celsius) and 1mm for a temperature difference of 50 degrees (Celsius).
