What is a Composite panel?
Modern building construction uses widely aluminum composite panels known as Etalbond. The company ETEM started their production and turned Etalbond into its trademark. After itsintroduction on the market, more and more companies have started to produce composite panels, simply called “bond”. Due to the popularity of the first trademark, the name Etalbond has become a common name for composite panels.
The composite materials are composed of two or more different layers. That is why they are called “composite”. Each layer is a specific material with its own properties and characteristics.
The bundle is like a “sandwich” of polyethylene core (2 to 5 mm) located between two aluminum sheets. The composite panel is firmly attached and prevents transformations caused by the weather conditions. A great bond advantage is the three-layer PVDF outside coating. It contributes to the high durability of the external environment such as industrial pollution, corrosion, acid rain, ultraviolet radiation, fires, etc.
Korean LED modules with Samsung chips by G.O.Q.LEDs are used for the illuminated composite panel signs. They come with a 4-year warranty and the high light yield illuminates the sign evenly and brightly. Moreover, their reasonable price made them one of our favorites. Many illuminated signs with uncompromising quality were made with these LEDs.
Another illumination option is the SloanLED American LED modules. We recommend them for signs under severe weather conditions. They are designed for heavy loads and have high water resistance. Their 5-year warranty and 100,000 hours of module life, justify the trust in them. The sign warranty depends on the type of illumination. Illuminated sign with SloanLED grants you a 5-year warranty and at least another 5 years of seamless work
