More about this product

To create ALPOLIC's Decorative Metal Composites, we apply a surface treatment to the aluminum skin of ACM panels. HPA panels are polished to a highly reflective shine, while HLZ panels are brushed to create a warm luster similar to stainless steel. Both types are finished with a clear topcoat of Lumiflon® FEVE fluoropolymer resin to protect the beauty of the aluminum against the effects of weather and chemicals for decades to come.

Product Composition

· 0.020" aluminum skin bonded to both sides of polyethylene (PE) or fire-retardant thermoplastic (fr) core
· Coil-coat finish – Clear Lumiflon® FEVE fluoropolymer resin top coat
· Advanced die-coating process ensures smooth finish with no roping marks
· Inner surface coated with primer system

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.
