What is a Metal Composite Panel?

Metal Composite Panels are fabricated using what is similarly known as the “sandwich panel” method (metal used for surfaces and plastics used to fill inner space), which is a widely known method of producing commonly used construction materials.

  • Process 1

    Using state-of-the-art technology, HD Panel USA utilizes roll-to-roll continuous laminating technology to bond metal sheets to its polyethylene core. Advanced features allow HD Panel USA to control the precise pressure and temperature, creating composite panels with superior strength, rigidity, flatness, and uniform appearance. Various metals are available to be used in the manufacturing process with dimensions that are customizable.
  • Process 2

    HD Panel USA uses a chemical agent known as NEO PEX – 0500E during the compound foaming process to produce materials that are Closed Cell Type as opposed to traditional materials that are Open Cell Type. Closed Cell Type materials have increased structural strength, decrease vapor transmission, and are resistant against heat (insulation).
  • Process 3

    HD Panel USA uses an advanced adhesion process utilizing maleic anhydride (MAH) grafted polyethylene (PE), which results in excellent adhesion between steel sheets and low foamed PE core. Test results show that addition of MAH grafted onto PE products leads to substantial increase in the adhesion strength to its steel sheets, attributed to chemical interactions at the interface as well as the introduction of polar MAH molecules onto the PE surface.
  • Process 4

    HD Panel USA’s patented forming process is a unique, final stage of the composite panel production line where groves/bends are created within the panel to increase durability and strength. Lab test results show that this patented process creates products that are 2.5x stronger than panels lacking this process, minimizing shaking and vibration during trailer transit.
