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.
