Fabricate the material

The material can be sawn, shaped, folded and bent. When installing it onto the substructure it can be riveted, ­screwed or even mounted as a suspended tray panel.

ALUCOBOND® composite panels can be shaped by means of a simple processing technique. This procedure, the routing and folding technique, enables a production of folded elements in different shapes and sizes. V-shaped or rectangular grooves are routed on the rear of the ALUCOBOND® panels using disk or end milling cutters, whereby the aluminium cover sheet at the front and part of the core are retained. The small thickness of the remaining material then ­allows folding by hand. A brake press is not required. The shape of the groove determines the edge radius. The grooves can be produced with a panel saw with routing device for ALUCOBOND®, on a CNC ­machining centre, with a panel routing machine or a hand routing machine.
