Aluminum Composite Panel

Aluminum Composite Panel also known as ACP and ACM is a dynamic material that is gaining popularity in
POP and sign markets. It’s rigid, durable, lightweight and aesthetically pleasing. The “composite” part in Aluminum Composite Panel infers that multiple items are combined to make this versatile material. ACP is 2 pieces of aluminum that are clad to a polyethylene core. The aluminum outer layers are coated with a durable polyester paint. The product offering includes multiple grades and features. The grades are defined by the thickness of the metal surface, the type of metal used and the coating applied to the metal surface.

Economy: Economy grade is the least expensive grade, and is ideal for flat surfaces. Primary applications are direct print, rugged signs where vinyl is applied and more. This is a popular choice for menu boards. Metal surface of .006 can be cut with a saw and may tear if routed or bent. Great choice where high performance is needed and low cost is desired.

Aluminum Composite Panel

Lite: Acceptable for most applications. .008” thick aluminum surfaces surround a durable 3MM polyethylene core. Can be
routed for simple patterns with good results. Can be scored and bent for simple patterns too. Lite is popular where sheet
will have moderate machining and opportunity is price sensitive. E&T carries this item in brushed aluminum, white, black
and sizes up to 78 X 120.


Extra durable metal coating that is .012” thick surrounds
a durable polyethylene core. Specialty grade allows for complex fabricating with great results. Product can be scored on reverse side and bent. It can also withstand intricate routing patterns. Further advantages include maximum rigidity, strength and dynamic colors. We feature Mirrorized sheet and brushed metals. Specialty grade is priced a little higher but worth it for more demanding clients and applications.
