Based on the principles of nature, ALUCORE® is an aluminium honeycomb core composite material with high rigidity and extremely low weight. It is designed for high wind load applications and/or where large unsupported spans are required.
ALUCORE® uses a viscoplastic adhesive bond which results in better peel strength and permits additional fabrication options such as bending.
ALUCORE® is manufactured in a continuous coil process and its Fluoropolymer (PVDF or FEVE) or polyester stove – lacquered finish provides an extremely high weather resistant surface.
ALUCORE® is available in a wide range of dimensions and finishes.
- Product quality
- Does not become brittle-hard
- Tough and resilient properties
- Excellent peel strength
- Ideal for a range of applications in transport, architecture or industrial production
- Easy to process
- Different thickness and formats
Let's Get Technical
ALUCORE® is an aluminium sandwich-type panel with high rigidity and extremely low weight. In contrast to conventional honeycomb composite materials, the system components, i.e the aluminium core and the coil-coated aluminium cover sheets are bonded in a continuous process.
The advantages are product quality and surface evenness. The material does not become brittle hard but shows tough and resilient properties and an excellent peel strength. Following in the footsteps of the ALUCOBOND® trademark, ALUCORE® is the ideal material for a host of applications in transport, architecture or industrial production.
The honeycomb core consists of aluminium foils made of the alloy AIMn (EN AW 3003) cell size b: approx 6.3-12.7 mm. The cover sheets of the panels consist of corrosion-resistant Peraluman alloys and may be used in a decorative or functional manner, depending on the purpose of application.
Withstanding The Elements!
Wind Load and Permissible Panel Sizes
The diagrams below indicate the available ranges of panel thickness and permissible panel lengths at a given parnel width (1250 or 1500mm), depending on the loads applied.
The tables apply to panels supported on four sizes (corners fixed). Dimensional values for other systems are available on request.
