Aluminum Composite Panels (ACM / ACP)

Aluminum Composite Material, commonly known as ACM panels, consists of two thin sheets of aluminum continuously bonded to a polyethylene core. Known for its flexibility, durability and versatility, ACM is completely customizable. Its strength-to-weight ratio, clean lines and extreme flatness have made the material a preferred choice in metal panels for commercial construction. For new construction, no other material offers a more creative allowance while maintaining such a clean and modern look. In retrofit applications, it most often can be installed directly over the old exterior without the need to remove the existing facade.

With over 30 years experience in the architectural metals market, John W. McDougall Company is one of the leading suppliers of exterior metal wall panel systems. With our experienced personnel, state-of-the-art equipment and a wide array of systems, McDougall has a solution for all applications, from the simplest of small jobs to the most complex panel projects.

Take a look at our five ASTM tested attachment Systems to see which one fits your needs for your ACM project.

For more specific information on different brands of aluminum composite panels and what they offer, here are four of the major manufacturers of trusted brands that we most often work with:

ALCOA’s Reynobond ®

Alucoil's Larson ®

ALCAN’s Alucobond ®

Mitsubishi Chemical’s ALPOLIC ®

Aluminum Composite Panels have been traditionally used for both exterior and interior. But some designers and architects need similar performance characteristics of ACP only with more color and pattern options. For these situations, we suggest taking a look at our Phenolic Wall Panels for what feels like an endless palette of options.
