Printed Dibond ACM

Dibond is an aluminium composite material supplied in panel form so often known as ACM or ACP for short.

Dibond is a great material for external signage applications, the panel itself is 3mm thick and consists to two aluminium skins either side of a polyethylene PE core. This gives the sheet fantastic rigidity and also makes it lightweight compared to a full metal sheet. In addition to supplying Dibond we also stock other ACP sheets including Alupanel, Multipanel, Dilite and Euro ACP.

Aluminium composite panels come in a range of grades. Premium with two 0.3mm white aluminium skins on either side, perfect for long term signage down to hoarding grade which consists of thinner aluminium skins with only one side being white. Hoarding grade panels are used on construction site timber hoardings.
