3A Composites exterior walls and facades. Versatile and state-of-the-art systems
The hallmark of the 3A Composites catalogue is the ALUCOBOND® panel, developed in 1969 and continually improved with emerging technological developments. The sandwich, composed of two external aluminium sheets, encloses a core of mineral substances with fireproof and insulating properties. The product’s ductility and various decorative possibilities allow for the creation of complex and original facades and roofs. The ALUCOBOND® line has grown with the addition of ALUCOBOND® Plus and ALUCOBOND® A2 panels that come in a wide variety of finishes, from 15 solid colours to 11 metallics. The ALUCOBOND® Spectra finish is characterised by shimmering and iridescent paints, available in 6 shades. The ALUCOBOND® Sparkling finish also features shimmering, iridescent effects, while the ALUCOBOND® Natural series uses the reflections of 10 metallic finishes to create striking results. The matt and satin-finished metals reveal their beauty in ALUCOBOND® Anodized Look finishes, panels that, unlike anodised surfaces, can be bent and folded without problems, thanks to a unique coating system. ALUCOBOND® Terra, with its velvety effect reminiscent of natural stone, and ALUCOBOND® Vintage, with its concrete and patinated metal surfaces, are up-to-date and trendy. ALUCOBOND® Urban offers 5 opaque colours for use in urban contexts, while ALUCOBOND® Legno (Wood) offers wood-look facades thanks to the latest digital printing techniques, which reproduce 6 precious woods. Finally, ALUCOBOND® Design offers 26 graphic and textured surfaces or, alternatively, allows the creation of customised panels. The catalogue also includes ALUCORE® panels with an aluminium honeycomb structure. The unique production process makes these panels more elastic and lighter than classic honeycomb panels; it is possible to obtain pieces up to 9 metres in length for multiple applications. ALUCORE® panels are also suitable for indoor wall and ceiling cladding.
