ALUCOBOND® ECO offers excellent product properties with extraordinary flatness, a large variety of colours, durability and perfect formability. It has been developed as a rigid and yet, at the same time, flexible facade and cladding material for exterior and interior architectural applications. ALUCOBOND® ECO is extremely weather-proof, impact-resistant, break-proof, vibration-damping, with great ease and speed installation.
Lightness / Rigidity
The composite structure of ALUCOBOND® ECO results in an impressive strength-to-weight ratio, even when comparing large panel sizes. Despite its low weight, which makes ALUCOBOND® ECO 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.
3A Composites is the parent company of ALUCOBOND® and is recognised across the globe as one of the leaders in the field of sustainability. Its reputation is spread far and wide, including among other diversified producers and raw material processing companies around the world.
The company’s unflinching commitment to sustainability – along with taking the needs of all key groups into account – enables it to make decisions of the highest economic, social, and ecological value. 3A Composites also commits to continuous self-improvement programs for environmental protection, many of which exceed government regulations.
ALUCOBOND® ECO Lifecycle
During decades of use in a rear-ventilated cladding system, ALUCOBOND® ECO protects the building from weathering and the harmful effects caused by industrial and environmental pollution.
An external cladding system using ALUCOBOND® ECO acts as a barrier against solar radiation. The ventilated space between the ALUCOBOND® ECO panels and the wall or the thermal insulation reduces heat transmission.
The rear-ventilated cladding system using ALUCOBOND® ECO protects the wall of the building from high and rapid temperature changes. Moisture can pass through the wall. The building structure remains dry.
The major advantages
- Low weight and high rigidity
- Perfect flatness
- Durable high quality surface finish
- Wide range of colours and panel lengths
- Good vibration and sound absorption
- Superb workability
