About Products

ACP is a short form for Aluminum Composite Panels, also known as Aluminum Composite Materials or ACM. It is composed of laminate 2 color painted aluminum sheets with plastic cores with the thickness ranging from 2mm-7mm.
ACP is a new material for advertising and architecture, it has many features than traditional materials. It is solid, string hard but light weight, it has multiple colors and good weather resistance. Moreover, it is easy to be fabricated into different shapes.

ACP could be used mainly in 4 areas: advertising, outdoor signage, decorative and architecture.
For advertising, ACP could be used for substrate, printing board, indoor signs, billboard etc.
For outdoor signage, ACP could be used for big signage, towers, different shapes if needed, dealer’s cladding etc.
For decorative, ACP could be used as wall panels, frames in door and windows system, roofs and ceiling etc.
For architecture, ACP could be used as curtain wall panels.
There are also some new applications for ACPs just like exhibition materials, decoration in trucks, trains, boat or metros and metro stations etc.
