ACM Panel

SendCutSend’s ACM, or Aluminum Composite Material (sometimes called e-panel or DiBond®) is a low-cost, lightweight cousin to aluminum. This material should be on your mind if you need something both lightweight and inexpensive.

Our ACM (DiBond®) comes in matte white, matte black or brushed finishes.

ACM Panel looks like aluminum, at half the weight

Often used in construction as building cladding, ACM (DiBond® / e-panel) is a powerful material for obtaining strength and aesthetics in your building renovation, visual merchandising, or machine enclosures.

Custom cut ACM (DiBond®)

ACM’s popularity comes from its metallic properties, which are achieved by taking two thin layers of aluminum sheeting and sandwiching them with a polyethylene core. The plastic core allows ACM to be about half the weight of a traditional aluminum sheet, while maintaining desirable characteristics found in solid aluminum alloys.

ACM is made up of around 80% or more recycled materials, so if going green is important to you or your customers, ACM panels are a great choice.
