ALPOLIC®/PE Aluminum Composite Panel image

ALPOLIC®/PE Aluminum Composite Panel

ALPOLIC®/PE is an aluminum composite panel that is produced by laminating two thin panels of aluminum on either side of an extruded core of thermoplastic polyethylene material. These panels are offered in a wide variety of finishes and colors, featuring our advanced Lumiflon® FEVE resin in Valflon® coatings supplied by Valspar. We also offer a core of thermoplastic polyethylene material in our HD heavy-duty aluminum composite panel, RF reflective aluminum composite panel and a selection of natural metal composite panels.

Why ALPOLIC®/PE
ALPOLIC®/PE offers the rigidity of heavy-gauge sheet metal in a lightweight panel thatA,A's easy to fabricate and adaptable to a vast range of indoor and outdoor building applications. Our materials look better and last longer than competing composite panels or solid metal, delivering superior flatness, vibration damping, durability and ease of maintenance. They also offer far more choice A,A- so you can get composite panels with the perfect finish, color and design at a very competitive price.
ALPOLIC®/fr Reflective Aluminum Panels image

ALPOLIC®/fr Reflective Aluminum Panels

ALPOLIC®/fr is a fire-retardant panel composed of two thin panels of aluminum laminated to either side of a mineral-filled thermoplastic core. The aluminum surfaces have been coil-coated before bonding with an advanced LumiflonALPOLIC® FEVE resin in a variety of Valflon® finishes and colors, supplied by Valspar. We also offer fire-retardant materials in our HD heavy-duty series and natural metal MCM composites.

Why ALPOLICALPOLIC®/fr
Fire safety is important for any building project, and a fire-retardant panel is typically required in buildings that exceed a minimum height as specified by applicable codes. ALPOLICALPOLIC®/fr is one of the most advanced fire-retardant materials available and is IBC-listed to ensure compliance with many fire codes worldwide. Offered in an extensive choice of attractive options, this affordable material is one of the most popular choices for exterior fire-retardant cladding A,A- seen in many landmark projects around the globe.
ALPOLIC®/RF Reflective Aluminum Panels image

ALPOLIC®/RF Reflective Aluminum Panels

ALPOLIC®/RF provides a polished reflective aluminum surface suitable for many applications that require a high degree of reflectivity. A reflective aluminum panel is bonded to our PE core and backed by a second aluminum panel , creating a panel thatA,A's much thinner and lighter than traditional options, much easier to fabricate and mount, and virtually unbreakable. ItA,A's the perfect material for any architectural project or practical application where reflectivity is required but a heavy, breakable reflector would be a liability.

Why ALPOLIC®/RF
The anodized reflective aluminum panel bonded to the surface of ALPOLIC®/RF provides a high degree of reflectivity without the liabilities of traditional reflective materials. These highly polished reflective aluminum panels are thinner, lighter in weight and easier to fabricate and mount A,A- and theyA,A're shatterproof. TheyA,A're perfect for any application where high reflectivity is required for the beauty or function of the project, but where the weight, inflexibility, fabrication difficulty or breakability of other reflective materials would be a problem.
ALPOLIC®/HD Heavy Duty Aluminum Composite Panels image

ALPOLIC®/HD Heavy Duty Aluminum Composite Panels

Heavy-duty ALPOLIC®/HD heavy duty panels are the strongest, most rigid aluminum composite materials we offer - providing superior tensile and yield strength with over five times the flexural elasticity strength of our standard panels. These heavy duty panels incorporate skins of 0.032" aluminum sheet metal A,A- 60 percent thicker than our standard aluminum skins. And theyA,A're available with the same advanced Lumiflon® FEVE resin coatings, in Valflon® finishes supplied by Valspar, that make ALPOLIC® panels the most beautiful and durable aluminum composite materials you can specify.

Why ALPOLIC®/HD
For exterior cladding and other applications exposed to the most extreme conditions, no other aluminum composite materials offer the performance of ALPOLIC®/HD. While our classic ALPOLIC®/PE panels use 0.020" aluminum skins, ALPOLIC®/HD features 0.032" aluminum skins bonded to both sides of a polyethylene or fire-resistant core for exceptional strength and rigidity. Overall panel thickness is unchanged from our standard panels, making these heavy duty panels easy to use with your standard fabrication processes and fastening systems.
ALPOLIC® Brake Metal  image

ALPOLIC® Brake Metal

ALPOLIC® Brake Metal offers a complement to our ACM products, giving fabricators the ability to form roof caps, flashing, fascia trim, accents and other complex forms using a sheet metal brake. This material is finished with Lumiflon® FEVE fluoropolymer resin in many of our most popular 4mm architectural stock colors and select specialty colors. Custom colors are also available when aluminum Brake Metal and matching ACM panels are ordered together and finished in the same special run.

Why ALPOLIC® Brake Metal
When using an ordinary cladding system, it can be difficult to get an acceptable color match for roof caps, flashing, fascia trim and other complex forms that are specified for the project. ALPOLIC® Brake Metal provides a perfect match for many of our most popular ACM panel finishes, including solid colors, micas and metallics. Custom panel colors can also be matched when the aluminum Brake Metal material is included in the custom panel order.

Sustainability image

Sustainability

We are committed to efficient manufacturing, sustainable architecture, end-of-life recycling and repurposing of surplus for a healthier world.

Sustainability begins with our own manufacturing processes, maximizing the use of recycled materials while maintaining the highest standards of product quality. Our PE core products A,A- the finest available architectural panels of their kind A,A- contain virtually 100 percent recycled materials. We also actively work to reduce our energy consumption, reduce the raw materials used in all our product lines, and capture production waste for reuse or recycling.

To continuously evaluate and advance our efforts, we have a Sustainability Manager on staff. ItA,A's a full-time position dedicated to overseeing the effects of our products and processes on nature and humankind A,A- a role found in few if any other companies in our industry.

Sustainability endures in the buildings that feature our products. The Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) requires an SRI value of 29 or greater for steep-slope roofs to earn a A,A"CoolA,A" rating, and many of our Architectural stock colors meet this requirement. We provide the Solar Reflectance Index for all architectural stock finishes to help you make the best choice for energy efficient, sustainable architecture. We also provide LEED Contribution Data Sheets to help you calculate the credits your building earns toward LEED certification for sustainable architecture.

Sustainability comes full circle with our Operation Encore program. Operation Encore makes it easy for you to recycle ALPOLIC® materials when buildings are renovated and re-clad. ALPOLIC® materials are virtually 100 percent recyclable, and through Operation Encore weA,A'll accept used materials, separate them, and place the components in the appropriate industry recycling streams.
