Aluminium composite panels are a high-quality sheet material providing a stable background for photo mounting, screen printing and vinyl applications, and combines two materials in one panel – a polythene core and an aluminium polyester varnish.
Also known by the brand name Dibond, aluminium composite panels, are a perfect solution for creating long-lasting, eye-catching images that are guaranteed to gain attention.
All of our aluminium composite Dibond sheets have a thickness of 3mm and can be provided in colour, or in white either on one or both sides. The combination of aluminium and the polythene core creates a practical and lightweight material that is malleable, yet stable in all weather conditions and can be fabricated with ease to create a range of 2D and 3D designs.
Providing a cost-effective solution, aluminium composite Dibond sheets are weather, impact, and corrosive resistant, perfect for continual outdoor uses from interior design, advertising, partitioning or exhibition stand.
Each sheet is coated providing a fantastic surface for different printing options to suit your desired application. For instance, Dibond aluminium composite panels can also be used to great effect as billboards or public signs, as they won’t deteriorate when exposed to the elements, and they can be printed on with ease for a really clear and vibrant sign that sells your business or service perfectly.
Providing great thermal insulation and brilliant machinability, aluminium composite sheets are also an incredibly strong product that offers great impact resistance. Further to this, due to its heat resistant properties, it can be used behind a kitchen hob, providing there is a 150mm distance between the heat source and the panel.
Dibond boards are an adaptable material that is made up of a polythene core and an aluminium face to create a lightweight and hard-wearing sheet.
Our aluminium composite sheets are sandwiched with two aluminium faces so have fantastic fire-retardant properties making them suitable for projects with the highest of safety requirements.
Dibond sheets have been the industry leader for aluminium composite material for over fifteen years. Dibond is an excellent alternative to other strong materials such as Plywood, PVC foam board, or Correx. It is rustproof, rot-proof, waterproof, and chemically resistant.
Dibond aluminium composite sheets are often used as signage in commercial spaces due to how light they are to install and how durable they are for continual use.
Dibond aluminium composite sheets are able to fabricate and can be cut, drilled and shaped to any requirements, so it’s a flexible material to work with.
Dibond aluminium composite sheets are equally easy to clean, with just warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth needed to ensure a hygienic finish. You can also polish Dibond sheets to buff out any scratches.
