Alu-Dibond – From Construction Material to Art Print

Alu-Dibond is a modern image carrier used in the art sector for the reproduction of paintings, which is also very popular among artists. Wall pictures on Alu-Dibond are special and differ strikingly from art prints on canvas or paper. Alu-Dibond is a composite panel made of aluminium and polythene that is mainly used for signage, exhibitions, shop fitting or trade fair construction. The special image quality that can be achieved on Alu-Dibond made the material interesting for reproductions and art prints. The composite panels were first introduced to the market in 1992.

Alu-Dibond Pictures – Material Characteristics and Printing Techniques

Alu-Dibond is a composite panel with an inner part made of polythene and a front and back made of thin aluminium plates. This material is characterised by high stability, great flatness, and low weight. In addition, Alu-Dibond panels can be printed in almost any size. There are two main methods for producing Alu-Dibond pictures. The motifs can be transferred directly onto the aluminium surface using colour pigments. The metal and the colour combine to create a synthesis, resulting in a unique visual impression. These types of Alu-Dibond artwork are entirely free of reflections and exhibit particularly high colour saturation. The prints have a particularly noble effect, with a finish that resembles brushed aluminium. All Dibond composite panels are suitable for both digital printing and screenprinting. In addition to direct printing, Alu-Dibond panels can also serve as pure image carriers. In the so-called lamination process, a previously made printout on photographic paper is mounted on a suitably cut plate. An additional UV protective layer contributes to the lasting brilliance of the colours.
