*Aluminum Composite Panel (ACP) is a type of ACM flat panel that consists of two thin aluminium sheets bonded to a non-aluminium core and is widely used as cladding for many diverse applications such as interior and exterior office buildings, external cladding or facades of buildings, hospitals, convention centers, airports, hotels, insulation and signage. ***Durabond is a polyethylene core with 0.3mm colored aluminum sheet on either side, pre-finished requiring no decoration. Routing V-shaped grooves, whereby the aluminum cover and a part of the polyethylene core is removed, allows folding the remaining material by hand. Ideal for wall panel fabrication.
Industrial quality carbide tipped ACM panel router bits, also known Dibond® composite router bits, Alucobond® composite router bits, Rectangular Groove router bits (for thicker walls), V folding Alucobond® router bits and V folding Dibond® router bits are very strong despite their overall lightweight and may be ordered any color or designed with patterns that imitate other materials, such as wood and marble, making them very popular.

Specially designed router bits are used to route V-grooves in the above materials to allow easy bending without cracking the bent area. Route within 0.8mm from the bottom of the composite panel to achieve a clean bend/radius. Routing V-shaped grooves, whereby the aluminum cover and a part of the polyethylene core is removed, allows folding the remaining material by hand. Ideal for wall panel fabrication.
