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.
