The solution of Aluminum Composite Panel(ACP) Recycling

【Introduction】

Aluminium composite panel (ACP), also aluminium composite material (ACM), is a type of flat panel that consists of two thin aluminium sheets bonded to a non-aluminium core. ACPs are frequently used for external cladding or facades of buildings,insulation,and signage.Aluminium sheets can be coated with polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), fluoropolymer resins (FEVE), or polyester paint. Aluminium can be painted in any kind of colour, and ACPs are produced in a wide range of metallic and non-metallic colours as well as patterns that imitate other materials, such as wood or marble. The core is commonly low density polyethylene, or a mix of low density polyethylene and mineral material to exhibit fire retardant properties.

ACP is mainly used for external and internal architectural cladding or partitions, false ceilings, signage, machine coverings, container construction, etc. Applications of ACP are not limited to external building cladding, but can also be used in any form of cladding such as partitions, false ceilings, etc. ACP is also widely used within the signage industry as an alternative to heavier, more expensive substrates.

These structures made optimal use of ACP through its cost, durability, and efficiency. Its flexibility, low weight, and easy forming and processing allow for innovative design with increased rigidity and durability.

【Main sources】

The leftover materials of ACP factories,the waste of decoration sites,and the classification of waste recycling stations are the main sources of waste ACP.

【Final products】

By using our ACP recycling machine ,we can get the final products as aluminum powder and PE powder .

【Usages of final products】

1)The usages of Aluminum powders:
①The aluminum powder is the main ingredient of fireworks.So the recycling aluminum powder can be supplied to the firework factories.
②The aluminum powder is the additive of oil paints.By adding the aluminum powder to the paints ,it can present silver. So the recycling aluminum powder can be supplied to the paint factories.
③The aluminum powder can be used as the additive of blowing promotor/foaming agent,etc.
④The aluminum powder can be sent to the aluminum factories,through smelting the aluminum powder can be made to the high purity aluminum ingots.
In these ways we can promote the usages of recycling material and reduce the pollution to the environment.

2)The usages of PE powders:
①PE powder is the basic material of PE pipes.Polyethylene has been successfully used for the safe conveyance of potable and waste water, hazardous waste, and compressed gases for many years. Two variants are HDPE (high-density polyethylene) and the more heat resistant PEX (cross-linked polyethylene).PE has been used for pipes since the early 1950s. PE pipes are made by extrusion in a variety of sizes dimensions. PE is lightweight, flexible and easy to weld. Its smooth interior finish ensures good flow characteristics. Continuous development of the material has enhanced its performance, leading to rapidly increasing usage by major water and gas utility companies throughout the world.
②The PE powders can be used to product the ACP again.
