DILITE® is an economic aluminium composite panel based on the  DIBOND®  production conzept. DILITE® comprises two 0.2 mm aluminium cover layers and a UV resistant polyethylene core. The aluminium composite panel offers consistently good quality at competitive prices.

DILITE® has an optimized coating for digital printing and can be perfectly applied for flat, short-term interior and exterior applications. In addition, the composite material is recyclable and available in a variety of colors, as well as in matt and gloss versions.

For large format signage, shop fronts and complexe processing techniques (e.g. folding) we recommend DIBOND® with 0.3 mm aluminium cover layers.

Recycled Content

In the core of our DILITE® panels we exclusively use 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 DILITE® panels comply with the requirements in the current version of the REACH & RoHS directives. Not only is DILITE® 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 DILITE®. 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 durable DILITE® panels are used for indoor and outdoor applications. In terms of weather resistance, the full range of selection criteria advocate the use of DILITE®. The panels are temperature resistant from -50°C to +80°C, waterproof and UV-resistant.

Recyclability

DILITE® 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.
