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. And they’re available with the same advanced Lumiflon® FEVE resin coatings, in Valflon® finishes supplied by Sherwin-Williams (formerly Valspar), that make ALPOLIC® panels the most beautiful and durable aluminum composite materials you can specify.
For exterior cladding and other applications exposed to the most extreme conditions, no other aluminum composite materials offer the performance of ALPOLIC®/HD. While our classic ALPOLIC®/PE panels use 0.020" aluminum skins, ALPOLIC®/HD features 0.032" aluminum skins bonded to both sides of a polyethylene or fire-resistant core for exceptional strength and rigidity. Overall panel thickness is unchanged from our standard panels, making these heavy duty panels easy to use with your standard fabrication processes and fastening systems.
