Sometimes known as Di-Bond. White face aluminium on both faces of a black polymer core, usual thickness 3mm. ACP panels are perfectly smooth and the sleek lines and rather technical look is currently very fashionable.ACP sheets are best cut on a saw and the resulting sharp edges should be smoothed with a Tellum abrasive pad, or similar. They can also be cut on a Keencut SteelTrack but this very slightly rounds the edges which can cause problems when the print is mounted onto it - the print does not bond well at the rounded edges.To hang these panels, use one of our aluminium or MDF Sub-Frame systems on the back. Alternatively float them in a specially designed L shaped moulding, several styles of which can be found in the Lion Mouldings range.Collection only, or delivery on Lion South vans.
High quality cast acrylic, perfectly smooth and with excellent optical clarity. The image on paper is either face mounted to the underside of the acrylic using Optically Clear Mount Film, OCMF, or mounted to the surface of the acrylic using cold mounting film. If mounting to the surface, a cold laminating film can be applied, which protects and and enhances the image.All our panels are laser cut to size for precision and to give the semi-polished edge that is a feature of such frames.To hang these panels, fit a Sub-Frame system to the back, either aluminium or MDF. Alternatively float them in a special L profile wood moulding, several styles of which can be found in the Lion Mouldings range.Acrylic panels are individually packed in protective cardboard. Always tear the packaging to open and never use a knife or scissors. The panels also have a protective film on both sides. Remove this at the last minute - when removing peel slowly and from the middle of a short edge, rather than from the corner. This reduces static on the acrylic.
