With its high-quality, resilience and unique appearance, Etalbond® by Elval Colour offers sustainable construction quality and high creative standards. Due to its outstanding product properties, this material stands-out. Elval Colour’s products etalbond®d3, etalbond® d2, and Etalbond®d1 for signage and display are sandwich type aluminium composite panels. They are produced using two aluminium sheets with either an LDPE core or a Fire Retardant* core (only d3), resulting in a total thickness of 2-6mm.
Etalbond® d3, d2, d1 are lightweight panels which incorporate a number of excellent properties for processing and installation, while they are easy to handle and transport at the same time. The letter “d” signifies the word display and the number signifies the thickness of the aluminium.
