ALUCOBOND Launches a Series of Colours and Surfaces

ALUCOBOND, a flagship brand of Swiss major 3A Composites (a global manufacturer of high–quality Aluminium Composite Materials), has launched a unique and classic range of colours and surfaces to boost its premier portfolio. The three new offerings – Colourscapes, Concrete, and Grove present a captivating portfolio of more than 40 colours for the best surface coatings for long–term architectural use, enabling architects to give a distinct identity to their designs. The new portfolio has been specially designed for premium commercial and residential buildings, airports, shopping malls, and institutions. The company is targeting architects, developers, and fabricators in major markets of India through its wide sales network.

3A Composites India
Ranjeet Sharma, President & CEO, 3A Composites India, says, “Our flagship brand ALUCOBOND has always been the preferred choice of architects when it comes to installing ACP. To enable the architects to unleash their creativity in designing modern and stylized buildings with safe fire-retardant materials, our three new colour series will bring a new wave of trendy designs along with safety.”

He adds, “Till date, more than 130 million sq. ft. of ALCOBOND ACPs have been used in the premium architectural segment. In 1995, when ALUCOBOND was first introduced in India, it began to trend as a unique construction material. It was used in many buildings like the CITI Bank, IL&FS, NSE, Bharat Diamond Bourse in the Bandra–Kurla Complex in the late 90’s and early 2000’s and these buildings still have their facades intact, which is a testimony of the world–class quality of ALUCOBOND.”

In India, ALUCOBOND has been widely used in the construction of about 25 airports, premier educational institutes like the IITs, major petrol pumps, metro stations, including recent landmark projects like the Sabarmati High-Speed Rail Terminal, India International Convention & Expo Centre (IICC) in Dwarka, New Delhi (India’s largest Convention Centre under construction), Jio Convention Centre and Jio World Drive in Mumbai, amongst others. “The ALUCOBOND brand has created an architectural revolution and set a new paradigm in aesthetics and safety, by creating inspiring, evocative buildings,” avers Ranjeet Sharma.

Colourscapes

ALUCOBOND’s ‘Colourscapes’ range of metallic and solid colours and surfaces help architects create designs that can transform a project into an architectural masterpiece. In metallic colours, there are shades to give the effect of Copper, Bronze, Gold, and Stone, while the solid colours come in a range of Basalt Grey, Olive Grey, Stone Grey, etc.

Concrete

3A Composites IndiaConcrete
ALUCOBOND has innovated and launched a series with a similar look of Concrete in aluminium composite material which is mainly used for façade cladding purposes while enabling an architect to design 3D shapes and geometric patterns, which otherwise would have been nearly impossible using actual concrete. This has been made possible by the formability of ALUCOBOND’s ACP, which is lightweight and rigid yet highly formable. Moreover, ALUCOBOND Concrete is made of fully recyclable materials. It can be used for façade cladding, interiors, decorative highlighter walls, balconies and column cladding. The product portfolio offers about seven shades in grey and brown in colours such as Ash Grey, Smoke Grey, Pebble Grey, Mocha Brown, Golden Brown, Caramel Brown and Cinnamon Brown.

Grove

ALUCOBOND has introduced a unique series called GROVE, which is curated in wood finishe. Useful for designing any work of art, this series gives the designer autonomy to use aluminium composite material instead of natural wood. Moreover, being an aluminium composite material, it is not only lightweight, rigid, and formable, but also resistant to fungus, moss and rot. Grove can be used for façade cladding, interiors, balconies, pergolas, ceilings and column cladding. The Grove portfolio offers Indian wood colour shades like Bengal Mahogany, Red Oak, Gir Teak, Himalayan Walnut, Dindori Sakhua and Kashmir Maple.

Empowering Architects

ALUCOBOND has innovated and launched a series
From subtle to bold and brilliant, the new shades of colours and surfaces are completely unconventional. Says Amar Kirale, Head – Marketing, India & South East Asia, 3A Composites India, “This carefully curated series of colours will inspire architects to bring striking effects to their designs. With the right combination of metallic, solid and vibrant colours, certain aspects of architecture can be accentuated. This gives flexibility to the architects to highlight specific elements of the key areas of design.”

Adaptability

3A Composites IndiaGrove
All these colours and surfaces have been manufactured under the quality standards established by E.C.C.A. (European Coil Coating Association) of which 3A Composites is a member. Informs Kirale, “The range of colours and surfaces we offer are of global high standard. For instance, the fluorocarbon (PVDF) coating is applied to the aluminium coil prior to lamination, using a continuous coil coating process where multiple layers are individually curated at specified temperatures, which in turn, offers excellent surface durability (factors that architects and designers weigh while selecting colours and surface materials). Our materials are extremely resistant against weathering, solar radiation, and pollution.”

ALUCOBOND: Synonymous with ACP / ACM

ALUCOBOND, a pioneer in Aluminium Composite Material (ACM), has revolutionized the architectural appeal and functional performance of buildings across the world. Its ACP architectural cladding applications developed through continuous R&D have set new norms on how buildings can be designed. The product range includes ALUCOBOND (flexible façade material), ALUCOBOND PLUS (fire retardant variant), ALUCOBOND A2 (non-combustible), ALUCORE (Aluminium Honey Comb Panel) and ALUCOLUX (Solid Aluminium sheets) for making architectural facades.

3A Composites: Innovating with R&D

A global leader in the production of high-quality aluminium composite materials (ACM), invested in India in 2007 to set up a plant, offices, and sales and marketing infrastructure. It’s manufacturing facility near Pune, Maharashtra, with a total manufacturing capacity exceeding 4 million sqm, is in perfect congruence with Prime Minister’s ‘Make in India’ initiative. The company is ISO 9001:2015 certified for quality management and ISO 14001:2015 for environmental management.
