DIBOND®design allows a new freedom of design that lets inspiration come true. Architects and designers are able to create their own individual designs and yet retain the advantages and quality of tried and trusted DIBOND® material. Individual decors, designed to suit customers’ needs, can be produced on request. Due to the high flexibility and the quick realisation, small lot sizes are also feasible.

In addition, there is the possibility to choose designs from our existing decor collection to achieve remarkable effects. Customised designs are available on request. This inspirational collection includes Art/Fashion, 3D-Effect, Stone/Natura, Carbon, Vintage/Metallics as well as concrete and wood effects. Wood-effect surfaces are also available with an haptic lacquer. Whether used extensively or selectively, for applications such as petrol stations, shopfronts, shopfitting, interior design or for your special Corporate Design Project – individual DIBOND®design decors accentuate indoor and outdoor applications. The 3D effect and depth of colour as well as the possibility to create metallic effects provide an additional scope of design.

Another advantage is that there is no repetition of the decor up to 5 metres. Combined with the extraordinary formability (e.g. folding, bending) of DIBOND®, unlimited possibilities arise to express your unique style. The use of high quality lacquer systems guarantees a long-term durability.

We will be pleased to assist you in realising your creative ideas for truly unique projects.

Recycled content

We have already completely replaced virgin materials in the core of our DIBOND® panels with recycled LDPE, and this means we are able to make an important contribution to closed-loop recycling. By using recycled core material, approximately 6,700 metric tons of LDPE virgin material can be saved every year. We work with selected European suppliers to source recycled LDPE of a consistently high quality. Continuous quality assurance is an essential part of this process for us. What is more, all DIBOND® panels comply with the requirements in the current version of the REACH & RoHS directives. Not only is DIBOND® core material recycled, the aluminium used in our aluminium cover sheets is also in part recycled. Aluminium is one of the materials best suited to recycling because regardless of how often it is recycled, there are no detrimental effects on its material properties. We intend to increase the proportion of recycled aluminium in our cover sheets in the future.

Fossil CO2 bound in the material

As the production of aluminium and the core material polyethylene are energy-intensive, there is embedded fossil carbon in DIBOND®. Using recycled LDPE, has already significantly reduced the CO2 footprint. Changing electricity generating methods for aluminium production is another means of reducing the amount of fossil carbon.

Product life cycle

Our high-quality, durable DIBOND® panels are used for long-term indoor and outdoor applications. In terms of weather resistance, the full range of selection criteria advocate the use of DIBOND®. The panels are temperature resistant from -50°C to +80°C, waterproof and UV-resistant. The composite structure of a DIBOND® panel comprises aluminium cover sheets which are particularly corrosion resistant. Depending on where the panel is installed, customers report a service life of up to 20 years.

Recyclability

DIBOND® is completely recyclable, i.e. both the core material and the aluminium cover sheets are recycled and used to produce new material. There are different methods to separate the material components from the composite. We are the first manufacturer of aluminium composite panels in Europe to have established a recycling system for the return of our aluminium composite materials in Germany in April 2023. Collecting and recycling the material is carried out in cooperation with our strong partners in the A|U|F e.V.. This association of German metal construction companies, system houses and other companies, organizes a closed-loop recycling system to deal with the aluminium used in the window, door and façade sectors. Initially, the option of returning our aluminium composite panels will start in Germany and will soon be extended to include other European countries.
