ACM (Aluminium Composite Material)

A unique flatness for creating smooth monolithic surfaces; exceptional load-bearing capacity and flexural strength. Strong, smooth, flat, lightweight, durable and attractive and available in a variety of colours. Check out each major ACM brand via the tabs below and contact Sotech to discuss the best option for your project.

Alucobond

ALUCOBOND® A2 and Plus perfectly adapts to the contours of the buildings forming complex, flowing elements. It is a composite panel consisting of two aluminium cover sheets and a mineral-filled polymer core.  It is a combination of formability, flatness, stability and weather resistance that characterizes this material. Due to its composite structure, ALUCOBOND® A2 can take on many different shapes. It is almost like a different skin wrapping the building structure. Its perfect formability does not affect its stability and flatness. The high rigidity of the panel remains.

 

ALUCOBOND® A2 composite panels are non-inflammable and do not actively contribute to combustion.

larson

larson ® PE is a composite panel produced by two metal sheets (Aluminium, Stainless Steel, Copper or Brass) with a low density polyethylene inside core that lends flatness and lightness to the material.

 

larson ® FR is an innovative composite panel developed by Alucoil using two metal sheets (Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Copper or Brass), and a mineral core. By developing their R+D programs, they have obtained a core which delays combustion to achieve a B-S1, d0 classification according to the regulations UNE-EN 13501. This core can be used with the whole Larson range and the different finishes.

Reynobond

Reynobond PE features a polyethylene core that adds strength and rigidity to the coil-coated aluminium panels. This maximizes its flexibility and formability, while maintaining a light weight for easy installation.

 

Reynobond FR is manufactured just like Reynobond PE, but with a fire-retardant mineral core that guarantees higher resistance to fire. These panels meet or exceed national model building code requirements without exception.
