Aluminum and aluminum composite panels are two different products. Aluminum panels are pure metals, and aluminum composite panels are only made of metal (the surface metal is treated) and the middle layer is polyethylene plastic. In the case of the same thickness and specification, the aluminum plate is heavier than the acm panels, and the price of aluminum composite panel is generally cheaper than aluminum panels for sale.
The price of the aluminum panels for sale depends on the material of the aluminum, the thickness of the aluminum and the surface treatment.
The price of the acm panel is the same as that of the aluminum panel, depending on the thickness of the aluminum, the type of the plastic, the thickness of the acm panels, and the coating on the surface of the aluminum composite panel.
Process of aluminum panels and acm panels
The construction process of aluminum composite panels and aluminum panel is generally the same. The biggest difference between them is that the aluminum composite panel is processed into the required specifications and shapes at the construction site, which is greatly advantageous in construction freedom.
The aluminum panel is processed and formed by the middle manufacturers. Due to the accuracy of the domestic equipment, some small troubles are often encountered during the construction process.
The structure of the aluminum plate and the aluminum composite panel is completely different. The light steel keel structure for the aluminum plate and the acm panels are the wooden keel structure.
In addition to the guarantee of the delivery period of the construction process, the mass production of aluminum composite panel is much faster than the production of aluminum panel, and the schedule of the construction schedule is also higher.
Lightning protection, fire performance
People have been discussing the issue of whether the aluminum panel is lightning-proof. For a long time, most of them think that the material is pure aluminum, and its conductivity is naturally high. For a German company, two materials were made in a military laboratory in Munich, Germany. Anti-lightning test.
The results show that in the case of instantaneous impact during lightning strikes, the curtain wall connection method currently used, whether it is aluminum composite panel or aluminum panel, can be completely protected against lightning strikes; in the case of continuous current of lightning strikes, in the metal plate or metal surface layer The lightning strike is prone to melting.
Because of the good insulation of the intermediate polyethylene core layer, the damage of the lightning strike is limited to the skin. From this perspective, the aluminum composite panels has better lightning strike resistance than the aluminum single board.
The fire protection of aluminum panel is inevitable, and the early aluminum composite panel did not have this condition. However, in the later development of research and development, a certain amount of flame retardant material was added to the aluminum composite panel to make the aluminum composite panel have the function of fire prevention.
