Tooling for Alucobond

 From buildingindustry.org

Alucobond is a type of sandwich panel which was first introduced in 1969 and is now widely used in the residential and commercial construction industries. This ACM, (aluminum composite material) consists of two sheets of smooth 0.02” aluminum, thermobonded to a polyethylene core. The result is a light composite material that offers many benefits including perfect flatness, rigidity, weatherproofing, impact resistance and also features vibration dampening characteristics. These characteristics make this product truly unique and popular and it’s available in a wide variety of colors and textures.

 While standard tooling may be utilized,  you may find it a bit challenging.   We offer specific tooling for machining this unique product. For sawing, we offer a line of saw blades specifically engineered for quality results in terms of finish quality and extended tool life. These saw blades are designed for use on horizontal, vertical and most table saws and are available in sizes ranging from 250 mm up to 550 mm.
