Alucore A2

ALUCORE consists of two aluminium cover sheets of at least 0.5mm thickness sandwiching an expanded closed cell “honeycomb” aluminium core.

Following in the footsteps of the world-wide established ALUCOBOND® brand of ACP panels, 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, high formability and fire performance.

The aluminium closed cell honeycomb core gives the composite panel a high rigidity and an extremely low weight. ALUCORE therefore provides a decisive advantage over other types of core panel 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 panels.

In contrast to conventional cardboared type composite panels, the closed cell system components of ALUCORE are bonded in a continuous process. The material does not become brittle-hard but displays tough and resilient properties and excellent peel strength – the basis for extremely high product quality. Planners, architects and designers appreciate ALUCORE because it combines high mechanical properties, such as the tensile strength of the cover sheets leading to high wind performance of larger panels, with outstanding processing and aesthetic features.

 

Specifications

The standard core consists of aluminium foils from AlMn alloys (EN AW 3003).
Cell size B: approx. 6.3 – 19 mm.

The cover sheets of the ALUCORE® panels consist of corrosion-resistant Peraluman alloys (AlMg) and may be used in a decorative or functional way, depending on the purpose of application.

ALUCORE® shows the following properties:

  • Large variety of colours and perfect flatness
  • Low weight and extremely high rigidity
  • Unlimited planning and design due to high formability
  • Vibration-damping, therefore no additional sound-damping needed
  • Simple processing using conventional tools, e.g. for folding and bending
  • Smooth handling on the site, even with large size panels
  • Low cost for substructures and fasteners
  • Short construction times, adherence to schedules, low cost
  • Excellent weather resistance and long-term 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.
