Building owners and architects looking to make a design statement should look at today’s generation of metal composite materials for the exterior cladding of their structure. The high tech image these wall panels can impart to a building because of their ability to be formed into various shapes can easily put a building “a cut above.” The smooth, sleek material can be bent, curved and joined together in an almost limitless range of geometric configurations. In addition, the panels exude a lustrous visual when they are initially installed and continue to do so for years to come with minimal maintenance.
Metal composite materials (MCM) panels have been used in North American construction for nearly 30 years. They are formed by bonding two metal skins to a highly engineered plastic core placed between them, creating a “sandwich” panel.
The bonding process occurs under very precise conditions of temperature, pressure and tension. The result is a metal/plastic composite sheet that provides numerous benefits compared to a similar thickness of solid metal sheet. The sheets are offered in a variety of lengths and widths.
Originally called aluminum composite materials (ACM), the name of the product category recently changed to metal composite materials to reflect the introduction of new skin metals, such as zinc, copper, stainless steel, and titanium. Aluminum, however, remains the predominant skin material.
- Two metal skins to a plastic core crating a “sandwiched” panel – most cost effective for the metal panel “look”.
- Consistent color, flexibility and strength are characteristic to composite panels. (Alcu Bond, Reynobond, Alpolic – Manufacturers)
- Creates a high aesthetic for a low budget.
"I think it's a incredible accomplishment for us all to have 2 acres of copper 55, copper FS, Bitumen, PVC and slate roofing systems working in conjunction with hundreds of details on some complicated skylights, multiple penetrations and several penthouses without a single leak or problem that I am aware of as I sit here today. This was all accomplished above some incredibly sensitive areas and all without adversely disrupting the daily operations of the (Massachusetts) State House."
