Top 12 Interesting Facts About Aluminum Composite Panels(ACP Cladding / Aluminium Cladding)

ACP sheets have the power to transform the whole way your home and office building look. Choosing the apt exterior facade material is of great importance since it will affect the way a place appears and improves the value of a place. Let’s take a look into the tremendous usages of ACP cladding.

 

ACP cladding has a greater tendency to sparkle when used in the interior of buildings. ACP claddings have great usage in areas like small and large domestic and commercial spaces. These days ACP cladding is available in numerous attractive designs which gives it a contemporary look and feel.

 

Variety of designs and patterns and material that are not prone to wear and tear-these are some of the features we at Rainbow Aluminium offer. 

 

What we normally see as signage boards and hoardings are normally made with ACP cladding sheets. These sheets are preferred mainly with the purpose that it can endure any weather condition. 

 

Strong Physical Properties

ACP cladding is known for its strong physical property, and that’s why it has widespread usage. Moreover, ACP cladding withstands any weather condition and is not prone to rust. Using an ACP Cladding in your home is a great option since, besides these properties, ACP cladding has both the properties of heat and noise insulation. 

 

Eco-friendly

 

Known for its eco-friendly nature and recycling capacity, recycling ACP cladding isn’t a big deal and can be done without losing its quality. 

Many a time the ACP panel that you use for construction is a recycled one and sometimes it can even be a part being used earlier. But its easier to recycle the leftover pieces. Aluminium tops the list of most recyclable material. 

 

Lightweight

The weight of construction material will influence the gross cost of construction. This is because of the fact that you need either equipment or means of transportation for moving the dense material to the site and the process doesn’t end there. Then the workers have to move it, which consumes a significant amount of time. Most commonly preferred options besides an ACP cladding are timber, vinyl and much more, known for its weight. And a great option for all these is the ACP panel.  

 

Non-Toxic

ACP Cladding when compared to other material, for instance, marble is less toxic. The workers of marble production suffer from health issues but not in the case of workers involved with aluminium production. Manufacturing of ACP cladding sheets is done ensuring strict measures. 

When compared to other building material aluminium is much safer since they don’t release any gases or fumes that are harmful to human.

 

Less Maintenance Cost

 

Maintaining Aluminium Cladding panel isn’t even a task. It’s merely a hypothetical thing. When compared to timber, metals and much more, the maintenance cost is much lower. The maintenance has to be done on the basis of the location, where a rural place with ACP cladding requires less than one cleaning each year and ACP cladding in an industrial area needs up to twice each year. Moreover, cleaning isn’t a task, and anyone can do it.

You can get rid of the soil and dirt in one wash where you can use cleaning liquids for that purpose. 

 

Least Prone to Catch Fire

 

ACP cladding sheets have an FR grade feature, which itself means resistance to fire. This is because the mineral core comes in between the Aluminium layers. Rest assured that the sheets won’t be prone to fire up to 600-degree Celsius and resist up to 5 hours. This makes it suitable for usage at a small home to a large building. ACP panels have three layers out of which the middle layer is non-aluminium, and the external layers are made of aluminium. All these layers are made with fire-resistant materials.

 

Diverse Colour Range

 

While making ACP cladding decision, you have plenty of options. ACP cladding suitable for both your interior and exterior are available, and you can make the decision regarding which ACP cladding is ideal for your business. ACP cladding will look like any other material used for the same purpose by giving it the same colour as that.

 

It’s an unknown fact that ACP cladding is available in more than 40 colours. It’s possible that one can easily customise any colour they want for the ACP cladding.

 

Customisable

Durability

 

ACP cladding is known for its durability and lasts up to a span of 30 years. Because of its strong nature, it can be shaped any way you like. When combined with other metals, aluminium gains more endurance. 

 

Corrosion Resistant

 

So you might be asking why aluminium is corrosion resistant. This is because aluminium has a protective coat on it, which came into existence after the pre-treatment process. But you might have another question in your mind. That is if not treated, then aluminium will be prone to get rusted. But this isn’t true.

Aluminium has a rare property of forming a sheer layer of aluminium oxide. Because of this layer aluminium is free from corrosion. But always remember the fact that places with an extreme level of everything need special ACP cladding- both maintenance and corrosion-resistance. 

 

Functionality

 

As said earlier ACP cladding is functional. Some of them include corrosion-resistant, durability, fire-resistant, eco-friendly, and so on. The list doesn’t end here, and also includes safety in earthquakes and makes the space soundproof and not easily prone to damage made by human and recycling quality. 

 

Sustainability

 

ACP has a great sustainable property which qualifies it for being a building material since one prefers more sustainable material for this kind of purpose. Mostly the material might be used before for construction purposes and recycled later on. 

 

Besides all these advantages there are obviously more advantages for ACP cladding. Other materials aren’t economical than that of ACP. Besides, the application process is so simple and without any complication. Because of simplicity to use and install that ACP cladding became the premier choice when compared to other material suitable for use both outdoor and indoor areas.
