More about this product

ALPOLIC's Anodized Aluminum Metal Composites features a Class 1 anodized aluminum skin bonded to a standard fire-retardant (fr) thermoplastic core. The electrolytic anodizing process creates an extremely tough, corrosion resistant oxide layer on the surface of the aluminum skin, with exceptional resistance to weathering and marring.

Product Composition

  • 0.020" aluminum skin bonded to both sides of a fire-retardant thermoplastic (fr) core
  • Outside skin is anodized in stock clear or one of five custom dyed colors: black, champagne, light bronze, medium bronze or dark bronze
  • These panels are available with a stock clear-anodized finish, or can be custom-ordered in black, champagne, light bronze, medium bronze and dark bronze.ALPOLIC Anodized Aluminum - Surface Composition.


Sustainability begins
with our own manufacturing processes, maximizing the use of recycled materials while maintaining the highest standards of product quality. Our PE core products – the finest available architectural panels of their kind – contain virtually 100 percent recycled materials. We also actively work to reduce our energy consumption, reduce the raw materials used in all our product lines, and capture production waste for reuse or recycling.

Sustainability endures in the buildings that feature our products. The Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) requires an SRI value of 29 or greater for steep-slope roofs to earn a “Cool” rating, and many of our Architectural stock colors meet this requirement. We provide the Solar Reflectance Index for all architectural stock finishes to help you make the best choice for energy efficient, sustainable architecture. We also provide LEED Contribution Data Sheets to help you calculate the credits your building earns toward LEED certification for sustainable architecture.

Sustainability comes full circle with our Operation Encore program. Operation Encore makes it easy for you to recycle ALPOLIC® materials when buildings are renovated and re-clad. ALPOLIC® materials are virtually 100 percent recyclable, and through Operation Encore we’ll accept used materials, separate them, and place the components in the appropriate industry recycling streams.
