dimen3Colors& Finishes

Various color and finish options make Alucosun ACP a favorite choice of building envelope. Variety of spectra, durability of the paint systems quality of the finish etc. Makes it a suits to any application of cladding whether it is a commercial building, iconic structure with unique identity or an established brand. Alucosun ACP offers a variety of standard and custom finishes out of in-house coil coating facility. Alucosun ACP is surface finished with PVDF and NANO paint system in continuous coil coating process which ensure quality and consistency in compliance with AAMA 2605 specification.

PVDF paint system with composed 70% PVDF resin is known for high resistance to UV rays and environmental effects therefore Alucosun® is durable and consistent performance in extreme weather conditions.

FEVE paints are known for their excellent durability. The superb chemical and physical properties of these quality paints have been well recognized and proved by the worldwide users and architects during the past forty years and now this is still continuing every day.

NANO- PVDF is a self-cleaning paint system. Such Paint system provides an additional clear top coat with highly crosslinked NANO particles on PVDF finish; which ensures smooth surface. Smooth and clear surface makes dirt and dust difcult to stick on which gives the building an always clean look. PVDF and NANO paint systems are highly durable assures 15-20 years of finish warranty.

ANODIZED panels with various finish options are available in Alucosun however it is subject to certain time and size ® limitations. Naturally protected by anodized layer panels are highly durable scratch resistant provides warranty about 30 Years.

PE and HDPE paints are used widely in many applications thanks to the extensive ranges of colors and economyconsideration, now the guarantee years can be extended from 5 years to 8 years with the different types of coating.HDPE finishes are also available as custom paint system.


Though traditional used of Aluminum Composite panels are wall cladding and advertising applications, nowadays it is widely used in various sectors like decoration, exhibition, vehicles like container Trucks, trains, airplanes, ships, furniture, architectural elements etc. As ACP is a flexible material which can be used in conjunction with imagination of the designer and architect to visualize magnificent creations.  Versatility in applications encourages us to search and develop unconventional finishes to fuel the passion of providing unlimited options. Some of the major finishes available in our Aluminum products are as below, however it is not limited here; if you can imagine we can create it.

Recommended Method Of Cleaning

The extent and nature of the building wash will depend on the material or system, its geographical location and position within the building, and the degree of cleaning that's required. Normal maintenance is work generally recognized as necessary to achieve the expected durability.

Adhere to the manufacturers or suppliers maintenance recommendations During cleaning,a ll access equipment such as ladders, staging, mobile scaffold, cherry pickers or similar, should be prepared with pads to protect the panels from impact. Improper cleaning resulting in coating damage shall not be covered by terms and conditions of product warranty.

Do not use strong organic solvents.

Do not use strong alkali, strong acid or abrasive cleaners. If these solvents and cleaners were used, the paint may swell, flake or crack.

Do not use high-pressure water to clean as this may cause damage to the joint sealant or cause paint to be removed. Water blasting is not recommended.

Do not mix different cleaners. If cleaners needed to be mixed, ple ase follow the manufacture's instructions.

Avoid extreme temperature to clean the coated surface. Sun-heated surfaces(above40℃)may accelerate chemical reactions and may evaporate the water from solution leaving residue and stains. On the contrary, extremely low temperature may give poor cleaning effects.
