Aluminum Composite Panels or usually known as ACP are flat panels that made up of rubber and aluminum. Initially, ACP consisted of 2 layers only, the layers being rubber and aluminum. Aluminum sheet layer was on the front side and exposed to external surroundings while rubber was used as the inner layer as it made installation easier.

But over a period, an additional layer of an aluminum sheet has been added. Hence, the rubber layer is sandwiched with an aluminum sheet on either side. The thickness, technically called gauge, of both these sheets, may vary accordingly. There are many Aluminium Composite Panel Manufacturers.
