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 thermobonded to a solid, fire retardant core, ALUCOBOND PLUS is one component of the assembly that meets the requirements of fire classifications while offering the proven product properties such as flatness, formability, durability and ease of fabrication.

The versatile characteristics of ALUCOBOND PLUS provide for a plethora of applications such as exterior and interior cladding, column covers, canopies, soffits and even signage, allowing architects to offer inspiring, creative, and innovative designs while meeting the standards of sustainable planning.

ALUCOBOND® Sustainability and Certification 

The LEED program has gained much recognition over the past several years and is now the premier sustainability design tool in the building industry. LEED focuses on constructing buildings that have minimal impact on the environment during construction, occupation and reclamation. LEED recognizes that utilizing recycled materials is an important part of minimizing environmental impact. This recognition is the driving force for using ALUCOBOND® PLUS material. The relatively high percentage of recycled aluminum ensures that ALUCOBOND PLUS can provide a significant contribution to earning LEED points. A list of all Federal, State, and Municipal LEED users is available upon request from the Technical Services Department.

As the original Aluminum Composite Material (ACM), ALUCOBOND® has a 50 year history in the architectural market. The product was created to provide the architectural community with a durable, lightweight panel that was easy to fabricate and handle. The composite structure meant that the sheets could retain flatness while being produced in very large sizes. For many years now, there have been multiple thicknesses of ACM available: 3mm, 4mm, and 6mm. The 3mm thick panel has been used almost exclusively in signage applications and on gas station canopies. In the architectural market, the two panels of choice have been 4mm and 6mm, and are the point of discussion for this Let\'s Talk Tech.
