ALPOLIC® Composite Metals
ALPOLIC® materials are ideal for architectural projects because they’re lighter in weight, easier to fabricate into complex forms, and easier to install than traditional materials. Yet they offer superior flatness, durability, stability, vibration damping and ease of maintenance. With a huge selection of finish types, colors and glosses – plus the ability to specify virtually any custom color – there’s no limit to the architectural effects you can create. To achieve the widest possible color and gloss range, with unmatched durability, we coil-coat our ACM sheets with the incredibly tough and stable Lumiflon® FEVE fluoropolymer resin, so your concept stays fresh through decades of exposure to the elements. ALPOLIC® products and finishes are backed by up to a 30-year warranty.
ALPOLIC® aluminum composite materials (ACM) are produced by continuously bonding two thin sheets of aluminum on either side of an extruded thermoplastic or mineral-filled, fire-retardant thermoplastic core. The aluminum surfaces have been pre-finished and coil-coated in a variety of paint finishes before bonding. We also offer metal composite materials (MCM) featuring skins of copper, zinc, stainless steel or titanium bonded to the same cores and left unfinished. ALPOLIC® ACM and MCM both offer the rigidity of heavy-gauge sheet metal in a lightweight composite material.
Ease of Fabrication
ALPOLIC® ACM can be fabricated with ordinary woodworking or metalworking tools, with no special tools required. Cutting, grooving, punching, drilling, bending, rolling and many other fabrication techniques can be easily performed to create a virtually unlimited variety of complex forms and shapes.
