Aluminum Composite Panel Cladding
Aluminum composite panels are two aluminum sheets with thermoplastic core made of polyethylene which holds them together. Because of their structure, aluminum composite panels are perfect for exterior cladding systems. In the language of architecture, cladding is a process when a building facade material is covered with some other material in order to protect the building against the weather and/or to create an elegant and modern finish to the building. Apart from external use, aluminum composite panels can be also used in interior design.
Advantages of Aluminum Composite Panels:
Aluminum composite panels are low priced
They can be cut and shaped in any size or shape.
Aluminum panels can be colored in any color and they can imitate other materials like wood.
The aluminum is lighter than other cladding panel materials.
In comparison to other materials, aluminum is very durable because it has a natural durability factor. When it is exposed to air it forms a special layer of aluminum oxide which protects the panels from rotting, rusting, and corrosion.
Aluminum composite panels are subjected to the process called anodization which increases aluminum panel thickness.
Additional advantage of aluminum is that moisture and sun don't affect it at all. Since panels are protected, they don't get dirty easily so the maintenance is very easy. Cleaning doesn't have to be performed very often and the cleaning process is fairly easy.
