Alucobond A2

Aluminium composite panel with a fire retardant mineral core

Alucobond A2 | The Building Agency

ALUCOBOND A2 is a aluminium composite panel used in architecture that fulfils the respective standards worldwide in regards to fire standards for specific buildings. Thanks to its mineral-filled core, ALUCOBOND A2 meets the strict requirements of the fire regulations and enhances the possibilities for the concept and design of buildings. ALUCOBOND A2, just like all the products of the ALUCOBOND family, allows simple processing, is impact-resistant, break-proof, and weatherproof.

Alucobond has used over 50 years of experience to develop unsurpassed levels of PVDF resin finishes and flatness. ALUCOBOND A2, has a dynamic range of colours, excellent formability and weather resistance, allowing the designer complete freedom of creativity. It has been developed as a rigid and, at the same time, flexible fascia material for architecture and design.


  • Substructure and fasteners are inexpensive, easy to handle on construction sites, easy transportation
  • Planning and design freedom Uniform brand presence worldwide
  • Guaranteed durability; improved dirt resistance
  • No sound-absorbing layer (anti-drum coating) necessary
  • Easy processing with standard tools and procedures
  • Short installation time, fixed deadlines, low costs

PVDF RESIN finish:

The surface sheet of Alucobond is finished in a factory-applied fluoropolymer (PVDF) high-performance coil coating in accordance with EN13523. This international standard ECCA Quality Label and Voluntary Specification demand high-quality production facilities and the highest grade polymers.

Alucobond has a significant Standard Colour Range. There also offer industry-leading paint technology in special finishes such as Terra, Spectra and Anodised Look. Non-standard colours or finishes to customer’s selection will be subject to minimum order quantities.

Typical Details


Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) ALUCOBOND® has an environmental product declaration (EPD) according to international ISO standards. The “ecological footprint” is examined by an independent third party. The EPD provides information on the environmental impact and environmental implications of the product, such as energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) or water consumption. The document serves as proof for the sustainability certification of buildings. The EPD for ALUCOBOND® composite panels can be downloaded from here.

Recycling & VOC Rating

ALUCOBOND® is fully recyclable, i.e. the core material and the aluminum skins can be returned to the material cycle and reused for the production of new material. For example, knife milling can be used to separate the composite panels into the different individual components.

The high intrinsic value of aluminum is a major economic incentive for its recycling. In fact, aluminum scrap can be repeatedly recycled without lessening its value or diminishing its properties. In addition, the energy used in recycling is a mere fraction of primary production requirements, often as little as 5%, yielding obvious ecological benefits.

Lower energy consumption thanks to a sandwich concept 

The proportion of aluminium used in the production of ALUCOBOND® is much lower than that of solid sheet. This significantly reduces energy consumption for the production of one square metre without sacrificing stiffness.

Reduction of CO2 emissions 

In the production of ALUCOBOND®, we have made great efforts to reduce our CO2 emissions. The first initiative we implemented was aimed at minimising CO2 emissions in the supply chain of the core material used for ALUCOBOND® PLUS and ALUCOBOND® A2. By changing the means of transport from truck to rail, we were able to reduce the distance travelled by trucks by 54%, which corresponds to a 17% reduction in CO2 emissions for ALUCOBOND® deliveries.

Coil coating 

We are a member of the European Coil Coating Association (ECCA) and a leader in coil coating standards and emission control. In the coil coating process, 99% of all volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are captured. The coil coating of ALUCOBOND® composite panels is therefore ecologically sound and safe. This is certified by the VOC classification A+. The manufacturing process complies with the strict European and German regulations of Directive 2010/75/EU (Industrial Emissions, IE Directive, comprising the German Solvent Ordinance (31. BImSchV)). Excess paint is recovered during the process and not incinerated as waste; all solvents used to clean the machines are collected and recycled.
