At a glance Alcor-N panels look visually similar to other aluminium composite panels, yet its secret lies within. The name itself highlights the product’s key feature, a unique corrugated 100% aluminium core which provides suburb strength and durability.
Driven by the need for safer building materials, Alcor-N panels meet the requirements as set by BCA, having been tested to AS1530.1 and AS1530.3 and also compliant with Clause C1.9e (vi) (previously C1.12 part (f)) in accordance with the National Construction Code. Due to this compliance, Alcor-N can be confidently used on any low-level building façade, and various other industry applications.
Its strength is provided by the aluminium core, with its corrugated form disbursing any pressure throughout the panel itself, which weighs just over 4.5km per square metre. A 0.5mm skin, available with either PVDF or FEVE coatings, provides outstanding weather resistance, ensuring long term durability in Australia’s wide range of climates. The panels are also highly resistant to other corrosive substances including acidic and alkaline chemicals and salt.
Working with Alcor-N panels is as familiar as traditional aluminium panels. It is just as easy to fabricate and install, and it too can be routed, cut and folded.
Off the shelf, Alcor-N is available in semi-gloss white, black, metallic silver, timber and charcoal. Custom colours are easily available.
