What is Dibond? | Cut Plastic Sheeting

What is Dibond?

Dibond is a leading brand of aluminium composite sheeting, renowned for its durability and versatility. While Dibond is a recognisable brand name, similar materials are also marketed under names like Dilite, Dibond Digital, and Raybond.

Constructed from a core of flexible polyethylene, each side of a Dibond sheet is coated with a thin aluminium sheet. These layers are then finished with a high-quality lacquer, ensuring sharp and vibrant print results. This unique structure combines the resilience of aluminium with the flexibility of polyethylene, making it a top choice for a multitude of applications.
