Some contemporary artists use metal Sandwich panels to display their visual work. A Sandwich panel is a fantastic material that works as well outdoor as indoor.
The material is used for cladding of walls, signage and large billboards. It has a few other names such as Dibond (after the brand) and ACP for Aluminium Composite Panel and ACM for Aluminium Composite Material.
The flat panel consists of two thin aluminium sheets bonded to a sandwich filler of synthetic make up.
The artwork can be applied with long lasting and light-proof pigments. As such they can be coated with Polyester paint, PVDF and fluoropolymer resins.
