Thus, it is a product with unmatched equality, beauty and strength. You can easily mold, cut or cast ACM panels into various shapes to use for every architecture project.

Main applications of Alucobond and Alpolic – ACM Panels

You can use ACM plates to coat flat or rounded facades, pillars, brow, roofs and awnings. They are also widely used in the production of doors, gates, columns and gantries.

However, it’s in visual contact that ACM stars in architecture projects, building facades, precisely because it is a versatile and attractive solution.
