ACM material refers to a building material that includes an aluminum layer on either side of a polyethylene core. Therefore, the substrate is very hard, relatively lightweight and easy to cut and manufacture, making it an ideal choice for building and sign board material. ACM panels are available in a variety of plates, finishes, colors and coatings. Also commonly known as Signalloy, Signbond.
The exterior wall has now become an essential architectural element of any commercial or residential property. Homeowners and contractors not only have to draw building structures, but also choose to add support and functionality to their exteriors through these different building material systems.
For those involved in the first renovation or new construction project, they will face the problem of how to choose building materials, for example, they must make difficult choices between wood, vinyl, ceramic and metal composite panels (ACM).
When deciding to use one of the building systems, you'd better start by comparing prices. While the price of wood, vinyl and stone options is usually cheaper, the cost of ACM panels may be slightly more expensive.
If you are hesitating and you want to know if this extra cost is worth it, the Alucoworld professional team will tell you the answer: It is worth it!
1 . ACM material provides first class durability
The popularity of ACM panels is mainly due to the manufacturing process of manufacturing these building materials. The ACM panel is adhered to a thin heat-resistant polyethersulfone core by two pieces of aluminum metal. The resulting ACM panel is lightweight and easy to shape into a variety of shapes and styles. Additional screens have been added to the panels to further waterproof the material and protect it from high impact weather.
Alucoworld'sACM panel is factory tested to withstand a variety of external factors, including:
- Resistance to high winds
- Structural support under seismic conditions
- Precipitation deflection
- Prevent air penetration and leakage
- Fire protection. (ACM with fireproof polyethylene core)
- Some degree of moisture resistance and impermeability
This rigorous testing standard makes ACM material safer and more durable than almost any other external panel. In short, ACM materials are almost indestructible and they are not subject to wear and tear except for the worst weather conditions.
2 . ACM material has a variety of appearances
Wood, vinyl and stone provide a unique visual appeal to any architect; however, these forms of exterior panels offer a relatively limited range of styles.
For wood, you are usually limited by the natural appearance of materials such as wood; although this can be applied, it detracts from the natural beauty of the material. Similarly, stone carvings are usually preferred for rough, rustic appearance - usually these panels are not painted, reducing the customer's choice of color. In addition, stone and wood are difficult to form and shape.
In contrast, ACM material is lightweight and very flexible. They can be curved and circular as well as more standard squares or rectangles. In addition, colors can be selected during the mixing and finishing stages, allowing manufacturers to choose virtually any color and even make wood and stonework to meet customer design requirements.
3 . ACM material has low maintenance costs
Wooden panels require regular maintenance. While natural appearance is certainly more attractive to some people, the use of non-engineered materials requires consistency, oiling, painting and finishing. Water damage and pest infiltration can easily lead to cracking, cracking and corrosion of these materials.
On the other hand, ACM materials require minimal maintenance and usually remove any visible stains with a simple cleaning and polishing. Due to the highly reflective nature of the metal surfaces, these panels are extremely resistant to UV abrasion, allowing them to retain color and appearance for decades.
In summary, ACM panel is very cost-effective as a sign board material or as a building material. Please look at us brand - Alucoworld. We are a professional ACM material manufacturer from China.
