Alucosun ®Aluminum Composite Panel is our excellent presentation to the global construction industry. Aluminum Composite panels are regarded as a constructive alternative several aspects to Aluminum Panels there are several features which makes it unique.
Alucosun FR® is tested and certied by world renownedLabs. FR Panels Class A2 and B(EN13501) Certied while and PE core panels are Class A(ASTME84) and Class 0 and 1 (BS476Part6, Part7). Additionally, Alucosun FR is certied to comply with NFPA285 and ASTME-119.
Alucosun® composite products are Light Weight materials comparing to s olid metallic sheets, glass or similar facades available in the contemporary markt.
Aluminum Sheets on either sides and standard 3MM thick mineralor thermoplastic core are thermally bonded together forms arigid panel capable to withstand external forces on a typical non-loadbearing wall structure.
Alucosun ®ACP are excellent flat products with uniform thickness generated out of high-tech machinery and strict Quality Assurancepractices; provides an even flat and fantastic appearance to the surface of building it envelops.
ACP is a recyclable product. Aluminum as well as the core materials are recycled and reused, thus ACP is regarded as Eco-Friendly product.
Alucosun®composites are easy to maintain.Washing with water or mild cleansers can remove dust and dirt, adaptable installation techniques in a way to replacor repair panels with accidental damages etc. makes it an easily maintainable product.
Aluminum composite panels are cost effective building envelop products comparing sheet metal aluminum, stainless steelorglass, it provides a wide range of excellent finishes and durable colors to chose with.
Versatile product which can be fabricated to any design orshape easily makes Aluminum Composite panels unique and favorite choice of Architects to create their dream designs out of it.
Conventional Aluminum Composite Panels consist of a thermoplastic core of LDPE bonded to Aluminum sheets on either sides.
Alucosun-PE® is highly flexible with better bonding strength product. Attributed to its comparatively low resistivity to fire it is currently used primarily in advertising and signage industry as a preferred medium of work . However, it is still used as facade cladding in low rise buildings where fire risk is less.

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.
