The current ongoing process to achieve A1 on typical solid aluminium cladding materials has shown to be ineffective due to the problems that arise from the ‘fabricate first, coat later’ procedures. However, 3A Composites have used their vast experience with aluminium facade panels to develop the A1 fire certified Alucolux Solid Aluminum. Alucolux is a 3mm solid, coil coated aluminium sheet material with a 2-3 coat multi bake system used for exterior cladding and interior linings. The PVDF paint system produces a wide range of colours and finishes from the Alucobond range including stone and wood looks.

Developed from the optimum marine-grade aluminium, Alucolux is the perfect combination of temper and hardness. Architectural cladding applications require the correct combination of these properties to perform when exposed to wind loads and pressure. Alucolux provides a non-combustible cladding solution for compliance and safety with no complications. Deemed non-combustible and certified to EN 13501-1. Alucolux provides solutions for architects, designers, developers, builders and construction companies looking for a premium solid aluminium facade panel they can safely specify for commercial, educational, aged care and residential projects without compromising design.

Alucolux can offer embossed surfaces, 3-D shapes, perforations, textured finishes and more. The paint will not crack when folded, the product is fully recyclable and the colour consistency is remarkable. The guarantee on this high-quality product is standard 15 years.
