Alucobond Plus — Aluminium Composite Cladding System

ALUCOBOND PLUS consists of two aluminium cover sheets and mineral-filled core. Alucobond has used over 50 years of experience to develop unsurpassed levels of paint finishes and flatness. ALUCOBOND PLUS, has a dynamic range of colours, excellent formability and weather resistance, allowing the designer complete freedom of creativity.  It has been developed as a rigid and, at the same time, flexible fascia material for architecture and design.

ALUCOBOND plus has been developed exclusively with the more stringent requirements of the façade market in architectural products. Thanks to its mineral-filled core ALUCOBOND PLUS meets the requirements of the fire-classifications for many applications. Where more stringent fire properties are required we also offer Alucobond A2 and Alucolux A1 Solid. ALUCOBOND PLUS is used in projects ranging from the construction of apartment buildings, high rise buildings, company offices, commercial and industrial buildings to the prestigious international landmarks of modern urban design and construction.
