Aluminium composite (ACM or ACP) sheeting is widly used as a cladding material for modern buildings but due to its Lightweight and Rigid characteristics, ACM has proven to be perfectly suited for the sign making industry.
Unlike traditional Solid Aluminium 11swg signs, the ACM alternative is much lighter and less valuable to thieves looking for scrap metal. Aluminium composite is also much easier to handle and can be cut and drilled with ease. Another brilliant property of ACP panels is how economically priced it can be compared to traditional solid Aluminium or Wooden materials. ACM has excellent weathering properties and also can be used to create folded pan trays.
