What is a ACP sheet?
A aluminum composite panel is usually called ACP. It comprises aluminum composite materials (ACM) consisting of two aluminum sheets coated with a thin coating. It is composed of two distinct elements, non-metal, and metal because aluminum is metal while polyethylene plastic is a non-metal material. It is superior in terms of the advantages and disadvantages of this new material, in further article we are going to discuss about how many types of ACP sheets are there.
A composite aluminum panel is an industrial material where thermoplastic polythene bases and the fire-retardant base layer are sandwiched between two aluminum sheets. Polythene isn’t a fireproof material, as it ignites and spreads the flame.

- Aluminum is an excellent material to replicate the appearance and color of wood and stone quite effectively.
- Excellent external stability in the same temperature range ranges from -52 to 800 degrees Celsius and with low thermal expansion.
- It has a polished appearance on the surface.
Disadvantages of ACP sheet
They are susceptible to scratches in hurricanes and storms. Certain ACP manufacturers also strengthen the panels by using special threads to stop any damage from occurring.
The joints need to be sealed with care, and waterproofing must be installed to ensure there isn’t any water entry into the structure during rains.
ACP is mainly used to create internal and external architectural cladding, partitions, false ceilings and signage, machine covers, and container construction. The uses of ACP are not restricted to building cladding for exteriors. However, it is also used in cladding, such as False ceilings and partitions.
