Specifications

ALUCOBOND® PLUS

HVG Facades can provide you with complete PDF specifications, CAD drawings and technical support.

ALUCOBOND® PLUS Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) shall be 3mm/4mm/6mm thick and consist of 2 layers of 0.5mm thick aluminium sandwiching a mineral filled fire-resistant core containing 70% non-combustible mineral filling. 

The aluminium skins shall be of alloy AlMg 1- NS41 (EN AW 5005A nearest equivalent) having an ultimate strength of 130 MPa and 0.2% proof stress of 90 MPa.

With its 5005 marine grade alloy, ALUCOBOND PLUS is ideal for projects that are within proximity to water.

Core materials containing re used core material, which could contain other impurities proven to be detrimental to the integrity and long-term performance of laminated materials shall not be used.

The face sheet of aluminium shall be finished in a factory applied fluoropolymer (PVDF or FEVE) high performance coil coating in accordance with EN13523, ECCA Quality Label and Voluntary Specification AAMA 2605-11. 

Note: Spray applied coatings are not acceptable. Rear face aluminium sheet to be left in chemically cleaned mill finish condition unless noted otherwise.

Front face sheet shall be factory pre-finished in colour or finish selected from the manufacturers:

  •  Standard Colour Range
  •  Spectra Colour Range
  •  NaturAL Range
  •  Anodized Look Colour Range
  •  Design Unlimited Range
  •  Urban Design Range

Nonstandard colours or finishes to customers selection will be subject to minimum order quantities. Applied coatings shall be protected by UV stabilized strippable foil and should be removed within 3 months of installation on external façade. 

ALUCOBOND® PLUS panels, prior to fabrication shall be stored horizontally on a dry, flat, level surface and protected from damage. 

Fabrication techniques as recommended by 3A Composites and HVG Facades shall be strictly adhered to.

These include cutting, grooving, folding, bending, rolling and edge treatment. Information relating to these processes and other requirements can be obtained from HVG Facades.

ALUCOBOND® A2

ALUCOBOND® A2 Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) comes in 4mm, for customised orders 3mm or 6mm can also be provided and consist of 2 layers of 0.5mm thick aluminium sandwiching a mineral filled fire-resistant core containing minimum 93% non-combustible mineral filling.

Aluminium skins of reduced corrosion resistance produced from 3000 series or 1100 series alloys are not acceptable.

Core materials containing re used core components, which could contain other impurities proven to be detrimental to the integrity and long-term performance of laminated materials shall not be used.

The face sheet of aluminium shall be finished in a factory applied fluoropolymer (PVDF or FEVE) high performance coil coating in accordance with EN13523, ECCA Quality Label and Voluntary Specification AAMA 2605-11.

Note: Spray applied coatings are not acceptable.

Rear face aluminium sheet to be left in chemically cleaned mill finish condition unless noted otherwise.

Front face sheet, shall be factory pre-finished in colour or finish selected from the manufacturers:

  • Standard Colour Range
  • Spectra Colour Range
  • NaturAL Range
  • Anodized Look Colour Range
  • Wood Design Finishes
  • Design Unlimited Range
  • Urban Design Range

Nonstandard colours or finishes to customers selection will be subject to minimum order quantities.

Applied coatings shall be protected by UV stabilized strippable PE foil, and should be removed within 3 months of installation on external façade.

ALUCOBOND® A2 to be supplied with a single 10 year warranty covering manufacturing defects, delamination, panel & paint performance and shall be supplied by the panel manufacturer, 3A Composites GmbH.

Separate warranties for panel and paint performance or warranties supplied by local distributors or 3rd parties shall not be acceptable.

ALUCORE®

ALUCORE® is an aluminium sandwich-type panel with high rigidity and extremely low weight. In contrast to conventional honeycomb composite materials, the system components, i.e. the aluminium core and the coil-coated aluminium cover sheets are bonded in a continuous process.

The advantages are product quality and surface evenness. The material does not become brittle hard but shows tough and resilient properties and an excellent peel strength.

Following in the footsteps of the ALUCOBOND® trademark, ALUCORE® is the ideal material for a host of applications in transport, architecture or industrial production.

The honeycomb core consists of aluminium foils made of the alloy AIMn (EN AW 3003) cell size b: approx. 6.3-12.7 mm.

The cover sheets of the panels consist of corrosion-resistant Peraluman alloys and may be used in a decorative or functional manner, depending on the purpose of application.
