Dibond® vs Alupanel: is there any difference?

Is there any difference between Dibond® and Alupanel? The short answer is no. But to elaborate a little, Alupanel is a well-known brand offering these aluminium sandwich panels, and Dibond® is another brand of these sheets. But it’s only the brand name Alupanel that has become generic. So if you come across a product sold as Dibond® or Alupanel, you can assume that it is an aluminium sandwich panel.

What is an aluminium sandwich panel?

A sandwich panel consists of three layers. The innermost layer consists of polyethylene, a black plastic; this core is insensitive to moisture, temperature differences and UV influences. The outer two layers consist of 0.3 mm thick aluminium. Thanks to this construction method, the panels are lightweight and easy to machine. These panels are widely used in outdoor advertising applications.
