VIDEO: Reasons to use Alumalite®

Watch our very own Senior Inside Sales Representative, Ed Quinlan, give you the top reasons why you should be using our Alumalite® ACM panel. 

Why Use Omega-Bond® or Alumalite® as an Art Canvas?

While the majority of paintings today are on canvas, it’s not always the best choice for painting. In fact, if not properly protected, painted canvases may crack over time.

Top 5 Reasons Alumalite® is Better than Solid Core ACM

 

1. The aluminum skins used on Alumalite are twice as thick as solid core products and comes with a 10-year Colorfast warranty
2. Due to the thicker aluminum and corrugated truss-design core, Alumalite has a higher strength-to-weight ratio and withstands over 120 mph wind loads
3. Alumalite is approximately 50% lighter which allows for ease of installation and less structural support
4. The Polypropylene core in Alumalite performs better in extremes than Polyethylene solid core ACM panels

Mounting Prints on Aluminum Composite Panels

ACM Panels vs Flat Sheet Aluminum

When it comes to consistency and precision, aluminum composite materials are among the best metal construction products the industry has to offer. ACM panels are flat when manufactured and stay flat even after installation. There is no "oil canning" or wrinkling because the skins are bonded to the core under tension, which produces a balanced panel.
