etalbond® ACP gives a versatile and resilient façade solution for designers and architects

etalbond® offers architects a supreme and versatile material for building facades. The panels demonstrate a rigidity that is often not available in solid metal surfaces and prevents the material from deforming due to local buckling, a result known as oil canning. This provides an extremely flat surface onto which high-specification liquid coil coatings can be applied, allowing the panels to resist oxidization and degradation even in extreme environments. At the same time, a limitless variety of colour coatings enables greater flexibility and freedom in aesthetic design, an important parameter for materials used in the hospitality sector. In addition, ACPs are lighter than alternative materials, such as solid aluminium, this makes them ideal for renovating existing facilities as it allows a visual and functional upgrade of the facade without requiring major modifications of the existing structure.
Furthermore, when produced with a core of the special composition, it can also be fire-retardant or even incombustible. This attribute is of paramount importance in today’s world, where fire safety becomes more important every day – particularly for facilities of high occupancy or visitation, such as hotels, schools or hospitals. However, the complex process for the production of ACPs means that strict attention must be paid to ensure quality is maintained.
Moreover is a key priority for the aluminium coil coater and ACP producer Elval Colour, which offers three varieties of ACPs: etalbond®, etalbond®  FR (fire-retardant) and etalbond® A2 (incombustible). Elval Colour opts for manufacturing at the highest possible level. The company’s practice in coil coating and producing ACPs is certified and rigorously audited by independent certification bodies and demonstrates a long record of reliability.
