Coated on both sides with a special lacquer, these aluminium composite panels can be printed upon directly, effectively and with extremely vivid clarity. Dibond is a sheet of plastic sandwiched between two sheets of aluminium.
As each and every sheet is coated on both sides printing can be accomplished on either of its surface. This is especially handy as each sheet has one matte surface and one glossy one; allowing you to pick the one which will best suit your purposes.
You may already be familiar with this kind of material as it is known by many under various trade names, such as Dilite, Raybond, Raynobond, Dibond Digital, Alucobond or sandwich panel. In essence though all of these are different words for the same thing: A sheet of plastic (called polyethylene) sandwiched firmly in between two thin veneers of aluminium.
Because of the attributes inherent to both of the materials, and also the manner by which the two materials are put together and fused, Dibond sheets retain the positive aspects of both components, allowing it to succeed in situations and environments that neither on the materials individually would be suitable for.
This new found flexibility allows Dibond to be adopted for any one of a whole host of potential projects. Signage is where you will find the majority of these composite sheets being used, and they can typically found on building sites, outside properties for sale & to let, car parks, by road sides, so by and large they are anywhere where a sturdy display is needed for potentially long-term or repeated use.
In addition to its calling as a word-class signage material, these aluminium-polyethylene hybrids are regularly used for cubicle partitions, false-ceilings, exhibition stands and temporary kiosks.
Please Note: Our current machines work to a tolerance of +/- 1mm. Please enter your requirements to the nearest whole mm.
We may sometimes substitute Dibond for other aluminium composite sheets which have almost identical physical properties. If you have any concerns about this please contact our sales team on 01752 917434 prior to ordering.
Colour of sheets may differ slightly due to variances in your computer display.
We have access to almost any grade or brand of Aluminium Composite Panel on the market. If you require a specific product not listed on our website and wish to order by the full sheet, please email Nick.Down@cutplasticsheeting.co.uk or phone our sales team on 01752 917434.
The strength, light weight and rigidity of Dibond Aluminium Composite Sheeting make it a popular choice of material for a variety of applications, including creative projects where it can accommodate image and text printing. These uses include:
