Dibond is a brand of aluminium composite sheeting that was originally developed over 20 years ago by the inventors of the first Aluminium Composite sheet.
Manufactured with a flexible polythene core, this extremely rigid yet lightweight material is covered with a special high quality lacquer which gives it a metal effect.
A lower cost alternative to real metal sheeting, Sign makers, display manufacturers and shop fitters prefer metal effect Aluminium Composite as it allows them to deliver a superior look at a standard price.
Generally one side of the sheet has a gloss effect with the other a matt finish, however they can be ordered in different variations, with both sides matt or both sides gloss. Both matt & gloss finishes can be printed on making it a popular choice in the world of design.
Aluminium composite sheets are available in a variety of different widths and lengths, and Dibond has recently expanded their colour chart to include colours such as Ruby Red, Night Blue, Traffic Orange and Signal Blue.
For a "Brushed" aluminium effect, the Dibond Butlerfinish line; available in Butlerfinish, Butlerfinish gold, Butlerfinish steel and Butlerfinish copper; is produced by running the cover plate through rollers that emboss the surface to give a brushed aluminium effect. The decorative surface and ultra-reflective finish of this sheeting makes it perfect for interior design, shop fitting and exhibitions stands, while its durability and excellent exterior stability allows it to be used for long-term exterior applications.
Aluminium Composite sheeting is easy to work with, it can be drilled, riveted, screwed or nailed to any surface and Dibond wont rust or crack.
A popular product used in a multitude of different ways.
