ACP stands for Aluminium Composite Panel.

LDPE’s full form is Low-Density Polyethylene & it is used as a core material in the ACP-Aluminium Composite Panels.

  • Protection film
  • PVDF/ Polyester Resin Based Coating
  • Primer Coating that used in the case of PVDF
  • Aluminum coil
  • Adhesive coating-Polyolefin
  • Polythene core-LDPE
  • Adhesive coating-Polyolefin
  • Aluminum coil
  • Service coating- anti-corrosive

Yes, it is available in 1.5, 3, 4, 5, & 6 (in mm). You have to ask it in advance for a specific size.

The sizes that are thickness and length of FlexiBond ACP is 1220 mm and up to 6100 mm respectively. And as per request the width of 965mm is also accessible.

Our source of our Aluminium Alloy is Hindalco.

Our PVDF paint dealers are PPG, AkzoNobel, Nippon, and Berger Becker.

Thickness differs according to paint used;

    • Polyester: 15-18 micron
    • PVDF: 25-28 micron to 30-35 micron
    • SDP: 25-28 micron

Dupont Adhesive of Bynel series is forms best bond between Aluminum with PE-core.

The various dimensional acceptances of aluminum composite panels are as follows:

    • Length – +/- 4.0mm
    • Width – +/- 2.0mm4
    • Thickness +/- 0.2mm
    • Squareness- 5.0mm (maximum)

Yes, ACP used in building, and it is used to improve the beauty of a building. It gives a smart, well defined, and contemporary look.

The fire resistance characteristic of the ACP depends on the core or major material used while production of it. Majorly Generally Magnesium hydroxide is added as a fire-resistant substance.

We have ACP with EN 13501-1 grade for flammability and reaction to fire. Our ACP, which is resistant to fire, has two hours ASTM E119 grade. You can compare the grades to ASTM E84, BS 476, DIN 4102, NFPA, etc.

  • AA 3005/ AA3105: AA 3005/ AA3105 grade of magnesium and manganese alloy has a 150 N/mm2 minimum tensile strength. One can use it for external building solutions. The reason behind its application is the property of magnesium. Magnesium has a characteristic that decreases oxidation of aluminum, and its tensile strength can easily handle wind loads of 2.25 KPa
  • AA 1100/AA 3003: AA 1100/AA 3003 grade of manganese alloy has a 120 N/mm2 Minimum tensile strength. It is useful for the buildings less than ten meters.
  • AA 5005: This grade of magnesium alloy has a 150 N/mm2 minimum tensile strength. It has around 1% of magnesium, which required in coastal areas to avoid the oxidation of the aluminum. Yes, regular coating of dye is also needed to withstand the metal from high moisture content. It can handle wind loads of 2.25 KPa.

Tensile strength of any material is the forte needed to resist the tensile force acting on the material. You can state it as the Force per unit area or N/mm2. There is a compression when the load is applied to the material body. Due to this, the body generates an equal resistance force to recover its original shape. It is known as Tensile strength or Tension.

Flexure strength is the maximum bending capacity or bending forte of the material. It is calculated using the bending strength formula.

The full form of ASTM is the American Society for Testing Material.

There are five different class of covering material used in ACP, which are below:

    • Lumiflon
    • PVDF
    • HDP (High-Density Polyester) Polyester
    • SDP (Super Durable Polyester)

AAMA 2620/2605 standard is followed in the coating of Aluminium Coil for ACP.

For measuring the covering properties for ten years; AAMA 2605 is used. And AAMA 2603 is used for insides, and AAMA 2604 is for five years warranty.

PVDF’s full form is Polyvinylidene Fluoride. Basically, it is a resin that added into paints that increases the UV- resistant properties. These properties are due to the C-F (Carbon–Fluorine) electrovalent bond.

PVDF has higher elasticity, better weather-proof compared to Polyester. PVDF comes with ten years of warranty, has higher quality and durability.

The performance of paint improved with increasing thickness under a specified range set by AAMA. Two coats PVDF achieved ten years of strength, and if it increases to three, then durability increases by 5-10 years.

Due to the following reasons, the paint peels off:

    • Incorrect Routing
    • Improper cleaning
    • Contamination of coil
    • Inappropriate cutting
  • Metallic colors get a glossy appearance due to the organic pigments. Compared to PVDF, these pigments have a higher quantity of polyester contents. It provides the gloss. But on the other hand, it reduces the life of the paint, if it used in the exterior.
  • Due to this reason, metallic colors have a lesser experience than solid colors and lose their gloss early than solid colors. AAMA 2605 stated that in 10 years, the remaining gloss should be 50% of the original.
