Shapes & Composites
ALPOLIC™ Brake Metal
ALPOLIC® Brake Metal offers a complement to our ACM products, giving fabricators the ability to form roof caps, flashing, fascia trim, accents and other complex forms using a sheet metal brake. This material is finished with Lumiflon® FEVE fluoropolymer resin in many of our most popular 4mm architectural stock colors and select specialty colors.
Fire Retardant Panel
ALPOLIC®/fr is a fire-retardant panel composed of two thin panels of aluminum laminated to either side of a mineral-filled thermoplastic core. The aluminum surfaces have been coil-coated before bonding with an advanced Lumiflon® FEVE resin in a variety of finishes and colors
Heavy Duty Panel
Heavy-duty ALPOLIC®/HD heavy duty panels are the strongest, most rigid aluminum composite materials we offer – providing superior tensile and yield strength with over five times the flexural elasticity strength of our standard panels. These heavy duty panels incorporate skins of 0.032" aluminum sheet metal – 60 percent thicker than our standard aluminum skins.
Polyethylene and Aluminum Composite Panel
ALPOLIC®/PE is an aluminum composite panel that is produced by laminating two thin panels of aluminum on either side of an extruded core of thermoplastic polyethylene material. These panels are offered in a wide variety of finishes and colors, featuring our advanced Lumiflon® FEVE resin in Valflon® coatings supplied by Valspar.
ALPOLIC®/RF provides a polished reflective aluminum surface suitable for many applications that require a high degree of reflectivity. A reflective aluminum panel is bonded to our PE core and backed by a second aluminum panel, creating a panel that’s much thinner and lighter than traditional options, much easier to fabricate and mount, and virtually unbreakable.
Aluminum Composite Materials
GRAPHIC-AL™ aluminum composite materials are lightweight panels with thinner aluminum skins designed for printed displays, architectural signs, canopies and other metal signage applications. Four different types are available to suit particular application requirements, from super-lightweight signage and displays to high-performance outdoor canopy, fascia and architectural signs
Polycrystalline Alumina Fiber
MAFTEC Polycrystalline Alumina Fiber materials are manufactured on precisely-controlled, state of the facilities to provide customers with highly consistent properties. MAFTEC has high temperature stability and mechanical strength as well as high erosion/corrosion durability. These material properties make the polycrystalline alumina fiber ideal for automotive applications. Available in both blanket as well as OBM, MAFTEC material is used for automobile's catalytic converters and DPFs and for a wide variety of thermal applications up to 1,600℃.
