ALUCORE® is an aluminium composite panel consisting of two cover sheets and a honeycomb core of aluminium.
Following in the footsteps of the world-wide established ALUCOBOND® trademark, ALUCORE® is also a composite material for a variety of applications in transport and industry or architecture, showing excellent product properties such as extraordinary flatness, large variety of colours and high formability.
The aluminium honeycomb core gives the composite panel a high rigidity and an extremely low weight. ALUCORE® therefore provides the decisive advantage where very high demands are made on the material for applications such as façade cladding or roofing, e.g. if exposed to extremely high wind load and for large self-supporting roofs.
ALUCORE® is the first lightweight panel that you, too, will absolutely insist as being: a bond for life.
Architecture and colour design are inseparable. Colours underline, highlight and structure the design concept thus generating the emotional experience of space and architectural variety.
In a wide range of colours ALUCORE® offers both solid and metallic colours. Customized colours are available on request.See Colours & Surfaces
In contrast to conventional honeycomb composite panels, the system components of ALUCORE® are bonded in a continuous process. The material does not become brittle-hard but shows tough and resilient properties and excellent peel strength – the basis for a high product quality. Planners, architects and designers appreciate ALUCORE® because it combines high mechanical properties, such as the tensile strength of the cover sheets, with outstanding processing and aesthetic features.
The continuous production process allows the production of large size panels up to lengths of 9 m, with superior flatness. Clean, easily fabricated with perfect details, a great variety of applications is possible with the use of ordinary tools. Its particular characteristics make ALUCORE® the ideal choice not only for outdoor applications such as façade cladding, roofing, balconies, shelters, etc., but also for interior design like artistic ceilings, or for applications in transport and industry.
In addition to its low weight and perfect flatness, ALUCORE® shows excellent weathering resistance. With regard to the surface finishing, high-quality lacquering systems with optimum resistance to weather and industrial pollution are used exclusively.
ALUCORE® shows the following properties:
It is the combination of formability, flatness, stability and weather resistance that characterizes this material. Due to its composite structure, ALUCORE® 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.
Lightness / Rigidity
The composite structure of ALUCORE® results in an impressive strength-to-weight ratio, even when comparing large panel sizes. Despite its low weight, which makes ALUCORE® easy to transport and handle in the factory and on site, its rigidity and high strength make the panels keep their shape and remain flat, even when exposed to extreme temperature changes.
ALUCORE® can be fully recycled with any other aluminium without prior separation or sorting (scrap value).
To avoid possible reflection differences (for metallic colours only), we recommend installing the panels in the direction of the marking shown on the protective foil of the individual panels.
Due to the production process, a displacement of the cover sheets of max. 2 mm to one side may occur along the longer sides of the panels.
