E-Panel is an Aluminum Composite Material, ACM, also referred to as Die-bond

E-PANEL is an aluminum composite panel, Aka Die-Bond, used for interior and exterior display and signage applications. It is suitable for mounting graphics as well as digital or screen printing, and can be saw cut, routed, or punched; however, it is recommended for flat panel applications only. It can be digitally printed on both sides and meets Class A fire rating based on the ASTM E-84 standards.

Here’s a breakdown of Dibond’s structure:

  • Two thin aluminum sheets: These sheets are comprised of two pre-painted sheets of .008” aluminum, (Die-Bond 0.012”) with a solid polyethylene core. 3mm overall thicknesses. Typically pre-treated for better adhesion.
  • Polyethylene core: This lightweight core provides rigidity and helps maintain the panel’s flatness.

Key benefits of Dibond:

  • Durability: Dibond is resistant to weather, corrosion, and chemicals, making it suitable for various indoor and outdoor applications.
  • Lightweight: Compared to solid aluminum sheets of the same size, Dibond is significantly lighter, making it easier to handle and transport.
  • Rigidity: Despite being lightweight, Dibond offers good rigidity and dimensional stability.
  • Versatility: Dibond can be cut, routed, drilled, and shaped into various forms, making it a versatile material for different applications.
