ACM (Aluminum Composite Material) is comprised of two pre-painted sheets of .008” aluminum with a solid polyethylene core.
We love it for its low cost, low weight, high strength, and outdoor durability.
ACM is an aluminum composite panel used for interior and exterior display and signage, as well as non-load bearing applications in robotics, automation, switch panels, and enclosures. Please review our Design Guidelines for ACM here.
Our CNC machined ACM responds well to common woodworking tools, and it is easily drilled, saw cut, routed, or punched. ACM also works well with common adhesives and mechanical fastening techniques, such as E6000 glue, VHB tape, rivets, and screws.
SendCutSend currently stocks ACM in 2 thicknesses: 1/8″ (3mm) and 1/4″ (6mm). Available in white, black, or brushed metal finishes.

Plastic and composite materials cut on our CNC machine will have small tabs.
These tabs hold your parts in place while being cut to ensure the best accuracy precision. Click below to learn what to expect and how to best design with these tabs in mind.
