Routing Alucobond®

Alucobond® is a brand name of high-quality composite facade panels consisting of two aluminium outer layers with a mineral plastic core in the middle. Alucobond® sheets have a very high fire resistance and are excellent for cladding facades and buildings.

Alucobond® sheets can be properly routed on a CNC routing machine. The sheets can be routed to the right size and fitted with recesses, wheeping holes, eyelets, hooks, fold lines,... and then screwed, riveted or fixed to a building or facade as a folded cassette.
