3A Composites USA is pleased to announce the addition of 34 new finishes to its stock and made-to-order ALUCOBOND® AXCENT™ programs, increasing its total AXCENT offering to 69 finishes. (ALUCOBOND AXCENT also is available in custom colors.)
ALUCOBOND AXCENT is a line of painted 0.040” thick aluminum flat stock designed for building trim and is ideal for matching projects clad in a wide range of like ALUCOBOND PLUS aluminum composite material (ACM) finishes.
ALUCOBOND AXCENT is the perfect trim for building fascia, flashing and roof caps. As a single skin metal sheet, AXCENT not only is perfect for roofline trim but for high-traffic window and door areas as well. AXCENT expands design possibilities by providing the perfect finishing touch to projects clad in complementary select ALUCOBOND PLUS ACM finishes.
“We care about our customer needs,” said Debbie Sulewski, director, marketing and product development, Architecture Americas, 3A Composites USA. “Our offering of ALUCOBOND AXCENT flat stock in matching colors to ALUCOBOND PLUS supports the overall vision and design aesthetics of projects by providing a more cohesive color palette.”
The AXCENT line expansion is the result of 3A Composites’ improved manufacturing capabilities, according to Sulewski.
“We’re now able to reduce minimum order buys making it even easier for our fabrication partners to order flat stock matching ALUCOBOND PLUS,” said Sulewski. “Ordering these materials from one supplier simplifies the process. Our expanded stock program also reduces material lead times, allowing fabricators and installers to quickly complete projects. AXCENT is the ideal choice when trying to match like ALUCOBOND PLUS colors on any project.”

As the original “aluminum composite material,” ALUCOBOND PLUS has been developed exclusively to allow architects and designers to meet the fire performance requirements of today’s building standards while using ACM as the material of choice. Consisting of two sheets of smooth .020” aluminum thermo-bonded to a solid, fire retardant core, ALUCOBOND PLUS offers the proven product properties such as flatness, form-ability, durability and ease of fabrication. ALUCOBOND PLUS is manufactured in a standard 4mm thickness.
Introduced in 1969, ALUCOBOND is the original and world’s best-known aluminum composite material. ALUCOBOND PLUS is manufactured in the United States in the Benton, Ky., plant of 3A Composites. The 3A Composites USA headquarters are based in Davidson, N.C.
