Fabrication Guidelines

Aluma-Kor aluminum composite material (ACM) is the building material of the future, which you will discover as soon as you fabricate it. Our ACM is as easy to fabricate as wood and requires no special tools with the exception of fabricating our Natural Metals products (Titanium, Stainless Steel). Our ACM can be curved, bent, routed, drilled, sawed, sheared, punched, trimmed and molded into complex shapes with conventional woodworking or metalworking tools. Aluma-Kor’s versatility makes it adaptable to many other standard systems that are available from a variety of vendors, including rout & return systems, glazed-in systems and creative custom systems. In addition, you can create complex assemblies with Aluma-Kor in combination with polyethylene welding and support systems attached with structural adhesives.

This “How To” Manual has been developed to assist fabricators with fabricating Aluma-Kor material in the most efficient and effective manner. The tips and suggestions contained in this manual are the result of many years of combined experience by fabricators in both the U.S. and abroad. These recommended suggestions and product data are based on information which is, in our opinion, reliable. However, since skill, judgment, and quality of equipment and tools are involved, and since conditions and methods of using Aluma-Kor material are beyond our control, the suggestions contained in this manual are provided with-out guarantee. We recommend that prospective users determine the suitability of both the material and suggestions before adopting them on a commercial scale.
