The aluminum-plastic composite panel is a new type of decorative material, which is a composite of aluminum and plastic, which dates back to the 1960s. At that time, researchers at Swiss Aluminium proposed the idea of combining aluminum alloy sheets with various other materials, and then carried out a large number of tests.
Finally, in 1965, the production process of aluminum and low-density polyethylene plastic composite panels was confirmed. After several years of exploration, in 1969, the German company officially launched the brand ALUCOBOND (Aruqbang) aluminum-plastic composite panel products.
The original intention of inventing the aluminum-plastic composite panel was to meet the special requirements of special industries for special properties such as light weight, high strength and surface decoration. Therefore, the application direction of early aluminum-plastic composite panels was mainly marked by the development of speed. Transportation industry.
Later, with the development of experimental research work, the performance of aluminum-plastic composite panels was further understood. Many of its features were more suitable for architectural decoration, and various deep-processing technologies and related equipment were developed. Further extension and expansion. At present, the construction industry has become the largest application market for aluminum-plastic panels. Aluminum-plastic panels can be widely used in the construction industry, which is inseparable from the extensive research and testing work of early researchers.
The curtain wall is the main purpose of the aluminum-plastic panel. In order to prove that the aluminum-plastic panel is reliable and safe for the curtain wall, a lot of experimental research has been carried out on the durability of the aluminum-plastic panel, the strength after the cornering, and the ability to withstand the wind load.
In addition, in order to effectively apply the aluminum-plastic composite panel to the curtain wall, many work has been done on the product processing and molding technology as well as the curtain wall installation system. This has become more prominent in Europe, where aluminum-plastic composite panels were first born and applied. Europe has established a strict review and certification process for building exterior wallboard products and installation system technology. For composite sheets such as aluminum-plastic composite panels, because of their different performance characteristics from other traditional isotropic materials, the government requires that product manufacturers provide a full range of product application technical manuals, including raw material specifications, product performance, and processing. Manual, wind load calculation, how to handle and store, how to clean and maintain, etc. The manual must first be submitted to the architect, project owner and construction unit for review and certification by a nationally recognized and authoritative third party. carried out. These measures have played a powerful role in promoting the application of aluminum-plastic panels in curtain walls.
In the 1990s, aluminum-plastic composite panels entered China, and aluminum-plastic composite panels found a new space for development. Both production and variety, as well as production technology and application fields, have achieved unprecedented development. In just 10 years, China has become the world’s largest producer, consumer and exporter of aluminum-plastic composite panels. At present, the development of the aluminum-plastic panel industry is in the ascendant in China and has a good development prospect.
