Vitally Aluminium Composite Panel is a aluminium composite material and sandwich-type composite panel comprises of a non-toxic polyethylene plastic core firmly bonded between two aluminium sheet. Surface of the aluminium sheet is coated with fine powdergrade–KYNAR 500 PVDF or option with FEVE resin for better high gloss quality.
Its robust structure of layered metal and polymer core offers extreme toughness. The smooth and uniform aluminium surface with color coating is definitely visually appealing. Both PVDF resin coating or FEVE resin coating on the surface of aluminium composite material enhance its resistance to weather and corrosion. It is ideal for internal and external used.

The Vitally Aluminium Composite Panel is easy to fabricate due to its lightness, rigidity and shock resistance properties. The fabrication can be done by using simple woodworking or metal tools.
It can be cut into all kind of desired shape easily by using saw and plate saw.
It can be routed using conventional routing machines. The routing process is going through the alumiunium layer and partial of the polyethylene core. It is recommended to left a uniform core material of 0.3 – 1.0mm on the lower cladding sheet to ensure smooth bending.
Bending: For 4mm vitally panel, the minimum bending radius without routing is 60mm. Bending process is similar to bending of aluminium sheet. The bending can be done using 3-roller panel bender or dies for specify radius.
Vitally Aluminium Composite Panel can be drilled using standard drill for aluminium and plastics. Rivets are commonly used to joint the panel to the structural. It is recommended that either aluminium or stainless steel rivets are used.
Welding for Vitally is possible using electricity warm tool and welding tool.
Vitally Aluminium Composite Panel is protected by opaque protective film. The film is advisable to be removed as soon as installation is done. Do not leave the film on the panel for more than 45days after installation in order to prevent glue residue on surface due to hot and humid weather.
While installing the panel, it is requested to install all panels in one single direction as per printed on protective film. This is to avoid color shade reflection differences among panels. See illustration below:
The panel surface shall be cleaned with clear water only. Diluted mild detergent is allowed if required. For external wall, it is recommended to be cleaned once a year using high pressure water jet. For internal wall, the panel can be wipe using damp soft cloth. Cleaning frequency is subject to the pollution condition.
