Introducing the Uses and Advantages of Aluminium Composite Sheet

Aluminium composite sheet, or ACM, is made up of a core of plastic, sandwiched between sheets of aluminium. Being a lightweight and long lasting material, aluminium is easy to work with and effortless to move, making ACM an ideal product for internal and external signage and hoarding boards.

Aluminium has the natural ability to generate a protective oxide, making it highly resistant of corrosion and suitable for applications where the board will be exposed to weathering on a regular basis.

Aluminium composite sheet can also be finished in several ways, further increasing its versatility for a plethora of commercial applications:

External Brushed Colours

External brushed coloured ACM provides an impressive aesthetic, where a design can be printed smoothly and effortlessly, with the illusion of it being painted. Typically used for point of sale and retail, hoarding boards and signage, aluminium composite sheets are available in a number of different colours:

Pink, light bronze, gold, blue, gun metal grey, copper, light grey + dark bronze.

The process is completed with external grade PVDF lacquer and brushed aluminium colour/white matt reverse. We supply ACM with a 0.3mm aluminium skin with a PE standard core - sheet sizes are available in either 3050 x 1500 x 3mm & 2500 x 1250 x 3mm.

We also include a five year external warranty.


External Silver Mirror

Our new aluminium composite mirror sheet is lightweight when compared with galvanised sheet alternatives and stronger than glass. ACM mirror sheet is supplied complete with a high-quality finish, smooth clean look and is BS476 PT7 fire rated to Class 1.

This means the robust outdoor mirror sheets are ideal for viewing panel applications, security or equestrian purposes. We supply stock in 3mm x 8ft x 4ft sheets as standard and a 5 year external warranty is included.


Dual Metallic UV Printable

For a sleek, professional and long lasting design, dual metallic UV printable ACM provides an ideal solution. Available in light and dark grey and light and dark bronze and supplied as 3050 x 1500 x 3mm sheets with a 0.21mm aluminium layer, it is well suited for us in point of sale, hoarding and display purposes.

Here at Righton, we remain committed to providing the highest quality of metal and plastic products. To provide further finish options for aluminium composite sheet, we have recently introduced range and brown ACM to our existing colour palette of black, white, burgundy, cream, racing green, blue, red, grey, slate grey, light blue, yellow and green.
