Specifically developed for architectural facades, ALUCODUAL® is a pre-coated engineered solid sheet comprising 2 to 3 layers of laminated aluminium skins. This ensures superior flatness, which is challenging to achieve with standard post coated solid sheets.

  • 2mm, 2.5mm and 3mm solid non-combustible aluminium
  • 1500mm wide sheet size up to 6000mm long can be provided
  • Coil coated for colour consistency
  • Pre-coated – 15 year warranty
  • Surfaces can be textured
Key Features
  • 100% Non-combustible classified as Class A2-S1 – ISO5660.1
  • Custom sizes, colours and finishes
  • Guaranteed premium PVDF finish
  • High quality marine grade aluminium specifically developed for architectural facades
  • Easy to fabricate
Aluminium Cladding
Scope of Use
  • High-rise buildings
  • Residential or industrial buildings
  • Public buildings
  • Tunnels, stations, subway stations
  • Airports
  • Hotels, hospitals, shopping malls.
  • Stadiums & event halls
  • Signage
Limitations on Use
  • The panel may not be used where adverse microclimatic conditions apply as set out in paragraph 4.2.4 of NZS 3604:2011
  • ALUCODUAL is to be a part of with, must be able to meet all relevant fire building code obligations
  • Installation in conjunction with a fixing system designed for a solid aluminium or ACM panel with compatible performance metrics
Statement of Building Code Compliance
  • B1.3.1, B1.3.2, B1.3.3 (a, f, h, j, q), B1.3.4 (a, b, c, d, e) Structure: Tensile strength 145 Mpa, Modulus of Elasticity 70,000 N/mm2, Temper of cover sheets H14/H24. Tested to ASTM e8, ASTM E8, ASTM B209-04 — Refer to 3A Composites — ALUCODUAL Technical Data Sheet 
  • B1.3.1 (b), B1.3.2 (b) Durability: Coil coated using an in-line, 3-coat fluorocarbon PVDF system. The rear aluminium sheet face has a mill finish or polyester-based service coat. The polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) coating is non-reactive and resistant to solvents, acids, and other environmental pollutants. As a result, the coating should not be affected by airborne contaminants encountered in service. In addition, the boasted wear resistance means the product should remain durable throughout the service life of the panel without chalking or fading. The base aluminium by its nature is inherently durable, the aluminium quickly forms a stable oxide layer upon contact with the atmosphere which the seals the raw aluminium below from further oxidisation. Tested to ASTM D523 (3A Composites Technical Data Sheet) and refer to the expert evaluation of compliance by a façade engineer of aluminium, and PVDF coatings [Oculus, n.d) 
  • C3.7 (a) Fire affecting areas beyond the fire source: Aluminium is deemed non combustible. The ALUCODUAL 2 mm panel was tested in accordance with ISO5660.1 2015, refer AWTA Test Report 23-002688 dated 14/07/2023).
  • E2.3.2 External Moisture: Aluminium is impervious to moisture. Installation in conjunction with a fixing system designed for a solid aluminium or ACM panel with compatible performance metrics.  
  • F2.3.1 Hazardous building materials: Aluminium is inert and the coating system is inert once dry.
