An LCA demonstrates the environmental impacts resulting from the construction, use and demolition of a building. The calculation can determine how much energy is necessary to produce the building materials used and to operate the building over its expected useful life.
ALUCOBOND is a 100% recyclable material, meaning the core material and the aluminum skins can be returned to the material cycle and reused for the production of new products.
Minimal amounts of VOC’s or HAP’s are released during the manufacturing process due to strict programs and processes designed to capture and destroy pollutants that are emitted.
Adherence to ISO performance standards signifies a commitment to rigorous Environmental, Health, and Safety standards and regulations as both are considered the gold standards when it comes to measuring and demonstrating EHS management. 3A Composites USA is committed to both maximizing the life of our products and the ethics involved at the end of the product life cycle through adherence to the ISO 14001 & 45001 standards.
The proportion of aluminum used in the production of ALUCOBOND is much lower than that of solid sheet. This significantly reduces energy consumption for the production of one square foot without sacrificing rigidity.
There are several continuous improvement initiatives that are ongoing with the goal of reducing our ecological footprint through the reduction and recycling of waste generated including solvents and paints, aluminum dust, and even our wooden material pallets. 3A Composites USA is continuously identifying new ways to reduce or eliminate waste in our products through the lens of circular economy and environmental stewardship.
