3A Composites USA is taking the innovative design and unparalleled performance of ALUCOBOND® PLUS to the next level with the launch of its new gray core. The color of the product’s solid, fire-retardant core, developed exclusively to meet fire-performance requirements, has been updated to gray from its original shade of white. This product design enhancement was achieved through modifications to the formulation that allows for greater design flexibility while still maintaining the product’s superior fire performance rating.
ALUCOBOND PLUS is a differentiator in the marketplace because it fulfills design and performance requirements while maintaining its fire-retardant properties. ALUCOBOND PLUS, now with a gray core meets the highest level of fire performance, provides ease of fabrication, delivers a beautifully uniform look, reduces shadow lines, and serves as a UV inhibitor.
ALUCOBOND PLUS with gray core reduces visibility of the product’s core, allowing it to blend in flawlessly, creating even more opportunities to customize and transform the façade of any building through perforated designs that allow natural light and enable enhanced aesthetic possibilities. In addition, the gray core provides a nearly seamless aesthetic with the use of ALUCOBOND EasyFix™. By using the ALUCOBOND EasyFix system, installers are also better equipped to efficiently install ALUCOBOND PLUS panels, helping them to meet tight construction timelines with less labor while completing more jobs.
3A Composites has developed, manufactured, and marketed high-quality aluminum composite panels, structural composite material, plastic sheets, and lightweight foam boards for architecture, visual communication, and the transport and industry markets since 1969.
