As a product of high-tech composite materials, Aluminum-Plastic Panels have been researched and developed in Europe in the 1960s and introduced to China from Korea in the late 1980s. It has a history of more than 20 years, and its various properties With continuous improvement and improvement, the scope of product use widely exists in the transportation industry, construction industry and some special industries, such as the advertising industry. Especially in the construction industry, because of its light weight per unit area, high relative strength, easy processing and installation, it is very popular.
From indoor to outdoor decoration, from low-rise buildings to high-rise buildings, aluminum-plastic panels can be seen. At the same time, foreign countries have a very strict and certified operating specifications in the application of aluminum-plastic panels to ensure that aluminum-plastic panels can be used correctly. Especially when the product is applied to the building, the product certification and the user unit must strictly abide by the relevant regulations. Due to the strict certification system, the application of composite aluminum composite panels abroad, especially in Europe, has been moving forward in the past two decades, and new products and systems have been emerging.
Aluminum-Plastic Composite Panel is a new type of ecological environment building material. Since its invention in the 1970s, it has been widely used for its advanced composite material structure and characteristics, excellent cost performance and easy processing, colorful decorative effects and durability, significant resource saving and environmental protection and other comprehensive product performance. It is used in building curtain walls, indoor and outdoor decoration, advertising plaques, vehicle and ship decoration, furniture manufacturing and other fields. Aluminum-plastic composite panels are mostly used in urban landmark buildings such as airports, large stadiums and theaters, so they have attracted much attention and are important products related to the national economy and people's livelihood. After entering the 21st century, with the rapid development of my country’s construction industry, especially the successful bids for the Beijing Olympics and Shanghai World Expo, aluminum-plastic composite panels, as the third-generation curtain wall material after stone and glass by architects, have gained rapid development of.
After more than 15 years of development, the aluminum-plastic composite panel industry reached nearly 20 billion yuan in output value in 2008. In the past ten years, the average annual growth rate is about 20%, and the aluminum-plastic composite panel industry has become a new economic growth point in the field of construction materials for the national economy. At the same time, a group of companies with the world's leading scale in production capacity, production equipment, production technology, and product variety and quality have emerged.
The export of domestic aluminum-plastic composite panel products has achieved substantial growth for several consecutive years. In 2008, the products have been exported to 103 countries and regions, including exported to developed countries in the world. The annual export volume of aluminum-plastic composite panels is about 65 million square meters, and the export earnings are US$910 million. It has realized the transition from relying on imports in the early 1990s to self-produced and sold at the end of the last century, and then to large-scale exports at the beginning of this century. At present, China's Aluminium Composite Panel Export account for more than 85% of the world's import and export trade volume.
