This material is part of the free Environmental Performance in Construction (EPiC) Database. The EPiC Database contains embodied environmental flow coefficients for 250+ construction materials using a comprehensive hybrid life cycle inventory approach.

Aluminium composite panels consist of a layer of foam insulation, sandwiched between two aluminium sheets. Aluminium sheets are chosen for their durability, resistance to corrosion, large colour palette and strength. The foam is typically polyethylene or polyurethane.

Rolled aluminium coils are used to sandwich the foam insulation, which is also fed to the manufacturing line as a roll. Adhesives are used to glue the aluminium sheets to the core.

Aluminium composite panels are typically used as cladding. The panel specified here is 4 mm thick.
