What is an Aluminium Composite Panel? ACP is used increasingly by developers, designers and architects around the world. Advantages over conventional materials like Stone, Tiles or Paint are many. Aluminium Composite Panels consist of a Polyethylene core sandwiched between two aluminium sheets. The panel consists of 3 main layers Top Aluminium Sheet Polyethylene Core/Mineral FR Core Bottom Aluminium Sheet The Top Aluminium Sheet is coated with Polyester or PVDF Paint. (25um) The Core is either Normal Polyethylene Based or FR (Fire-Resistant) which is specially treated for fire resistance. The Bottom Aluminium Sheet comes in either Mill Finish or if required, a thin layer of Polyester Paint coat with (6~8um) backside paint in White Wash or Light Grey. •

Euro Facade Composite Panels Aluminium Composite Panels Advantages & Features Excellent Torsion Strength EFP composite panels feature high torsion and bending strength under heavy loads. Easy Processing and Installation EFP panels are easy to process at 3.5-7.5kg/m2. All cutting, milling, planning, slotting, side-folding and curving can be easily achieved using the range of EFP hand fabrication tools. Panels are ideal for both interior and exterior applications raising production efficiency.

Applications EFP Aluminium Composite Panels can be used for a wide variety of interior and exterior applications including: Building Exterior Wall Cladding Curtain Walls Canopies Corporate Identities Shop Fronts Signage Pillar Wraps Exhibits Architectural Signage Interior Decoration Visual Merchandising

Excellent Impact Resistance EFP panels feature impact resistance, toughness and bending rigidity. Excellent Weather Resistance EFP panels are coated with 25 um fluoro-carbon(PVDF) resin, which features strong adhesion, alkali resistance and powdering resistance of ultraviolet light. Panels are guaranteed not to fade significantly for 20 years unlike paint which fades every few years and has to be repainted. Even Coating & Various Colour Options A smooth and even finish to the panel gives facades an elegant and clean look, enhancing the value of properties and projecting a modern and aesthetic appeal. A wide selection of 50 standard colours and our ability to match any RAL or Pantone colour provides additional flexibility. Easy to Maintain EFP panels are extremely easy to maintain and need only minimal cleaning so reducing maintenance costs. Only neutral cleanser and water is needed for its self-clean performance. Outstanding Sound & Thermal Insulation Compared to other materials with the same weight like steel, Solid Aluminium, tiles and Plywood, EFP Panels have an excellent sound transmission loss of 26Db. The PE and FR core isolates the deferential exterior and interior temperatures & moisture allowing less heat to be radiated to the inside of the building. Outstanding Fire Proofing Characteristics EFP panels fully meet the fire-proofing requirements of the international building codes and has passed the BS476 Part 6 & 7 test and has a Class “0” fire rating.

Packing & Palleting We give tremendous attention to our packing and palleting, using only new pallets and wrapping all goods in plastic to prevent any damages to the sheets while in transit. Each pallet is no more than 1.5 tons in weight and we try to pack no more than 120 sheets in each pallet. Each pallet is clearly labeled with Project Name, Colour Code, Size and Quantity of Sheets in that pallet, so it is easy for our customers to know where to place the pallets when on the site. Our pallets are strengthened with the use of metal straps which prevent pallets from opening in transit. We provide all our customers with digital photographs of all shipments and loading photos prior to shipment. This gives our customers a peace of mind and confidence that goods are dispatched in the best condition.

Euro Facade Composite Panels Aluminium Composite Panels Different Types of Paint PE (Polyester) Coating XT EFP Polyester XT coated composite panels have a highly compact molecular structure making the paint surface smooth and highly durable to elements such as UV rays. PE coated panels are suited to interior applications, sign boards, ceiling panels and shop fronts. PVDF (Polyvinylidene Difluoride) Coating EFP PVDF panels are highly resistant to UV rays, corrosion resistant with good flexibility, glossiness, colour retention and strong adhesive force. We use 70% Knyar 500 and Hylar 5000 PVDF resins, key ingredients in making our panels conform to international standards. We provide warranties on 3 specific panel classifications: i Normal PVDF - 3 layer oven baked PVDF coating ii Nano PVDF Self-Cleaning Panels - Eco-Friendly iii Chameleon PVDF Panels

Special Colours These panels are used for interior decorative applications such as lobbies, restaurants, lift interiors, receptions, tables and columns. They include a wide range of finishes such as Mirror, Brushed, Granite & Marble and Wood. Should a customer require a specific pattern they can send us a sample or image and, if available from our raw material supplier, we can custom produce this based on minimum quantity orders. We offer an 8 year warranty on these special finishes for external use.

Normal PVDF Panels: Highly resistant to acid and alkali with outstanding durability characteristics such as colour and gloss retention. Perfect for cladding of buildings, canopies, roofing and external facades. We offer a 20-year warranty on these panels. Nano PVDF Self-Cleaning Panels: Feature a hydrophobic, and lipophobic surface, allowing them to repel water and dirt. These panels are coated with a 4th protective layer of coating over and above the normal 3 layer PVDF coated panels. These panels are made from bio-degradable chemicals and are 100% environmentally friendly and non-toxic. The colour of the panels stays vivid and bright for much longer than normal PVDF panels. We provide a 25 years warranty for Nano PVDF panels. Chameleon PVDF Panels: Give a pearl-like effect for a unique look. These panels have the same characteristics as Normal PVDF panels and we offer a 20-year warranty on these panels. FEVE Unlike other fluoroplymer resins, Fluoroethylene Vinyl Ether (FEVE) resins offers a wide range of desirable properties, such as excellent resistance against UV rays, corrosion and chemicals. FEVE is different from industry standard PVDF Knyar 500/ Hylar 500 resins as it offers a higher gloss of up to 90%. FEVE based coatings offer excellent weatherability under harsh environmental conditions and provide extended period of gloss and colour retention and we offer the same 20-year warranty on our FEVE coated panels.

Custom Colours Based on minimum quantity orders of 600m2 per colour, we can produce special colours using our state-of-theart in-house paint coating facility. This allows us to match any RAL or Pantone colour. Customers simply have to provide their desired colour samples. Upon receipt our paint suppliers will make a colour sample of only the aluminium skin for approval. We require 7-10 working days to arrange these special colour samples. Customers must confirm the colour sample is acceptable in writing before we can proceed with production. •

Euro Facade Composite Panels Aluminium Composite Panels Nano Technology PVDF Panel The EFP Nano PVDF Panels uses exciting new nano technology to change the molecular structure of the surface of our PVDF panels in order to improve the desired effects. These are Anti-Graffiti and Self Cleaning panels. We have created PVDF Panels with Nano polymers, a new material, which is 5000 times smaller than the diameter of a hair and therefore invisible to the naked eye.

The EFP Nano PVDF Panels have a hydrophobic and lipophobic surface, which makes it easy to repel water and dirt. The protected object stays clean much longer and can easily be cleaned with pure water afterwards. You no longer need to use detergents that are harmful to you and your environment.

Nano polymer is a new material, which is 5000 times smaller than the diameter of a hair

Advantages of the EFP Nano PVDF Panel Provides an invisible protective Nano polymer film, that gives a high quality shiny look and smooth feel lasting for years. Grease, oil and dirt can be removed easily and quickly with pure water - surfaces look like new all the time. The Nano Paint polymer is biologically degradable, environmentally friendly and Non Toxic. The Nano polymer film repels water, dirt and spray paint (anti-graffiti), hence it is a self-cleaning surface, giving the panels a longer life and makes the panel look new for many years. Cleaning is easy and this brings down maintenance costs for building as the surface does not retain any dirt or dust. Good aging resistant, anti-alkali, anti-acid resistant Claddings remain clean and hygienic for many years â&#x20AC;˘
