Aluminum Composite Materials (ACM)
Aluminum composite materials (ACM) are a versatile, lightweight, and durable material that is commonly used as exterior cladding material for buildings. Recently, it has become popular as a light-passing, watertight pergola roof in outdoor decking projects. ACM panels consist of two thin aluminum sheets bonded to a non-aluminum core, typically polyethylene or polypropylene. The core provides rigidity and strength to the panel, while the aluminum sheets provide a durable and attractive outer layer of protection.
Aluminum composite panels have become increasingly popular over the last few decades due to their versatility, ease of installation, and reliability. Additionally, ACM panels are available in custom patterns, black or white, and varying thicknesses, making ACM an ideal choice for a variety of design projects.
