PPB Ltd has launched its first range of premium Aluminium Composite materials for the UK’s digital printers, signmakers and fabricator. proBOND aluminium composite is a new addition to the PPB portfolio and has been specifically developed to offer customers a genuine high quality sheet; whether it’s for short-term digital print projects, or high-end corporate ID signage.
proBOND Premium is suitable for all signage and fabrication applications. A premium grade 5005 alloy is used in manufacturing the full range of white, colours and metallics making the range a 'genuine option' for customers already using premium European manufactured products. With a two times durable Polyester paint on all colours, proBOND Premium comes with a 10 year warranty.
proBOND Digital White grade offers 'superior ink adhesion from a true optimised digital paint surface proven to give the very best results' for all UV Flatbed printing applications such as hoardings. It is made to ISO9001 standards, has a five-year warranty and delivers genuine quality at an economic price.
proBOND Lite has a 0.20mm aluminium skin making it ideal for use where a slightly higher thickness of alloy is preferred to the thinner hoarding grades; or for quality signage projects where 3D fabrication is not applicable. Lite also comes with the optimised digital paint for UV flatbed printing.
PPB Ltd can deliver proBOND orders next-day from an extensive stock holding and has a full in-house conversion facility for orders requiring cutting. As an additional free of charge service, PPB will deliver sample chip requests directly to customers, or to their end clients.
To support this product addition, PPB has employed Paul Neale, (ex PaperlinX), as ACM Manager. Paul has a comprehensive knowledge and vast experience of aluminium composites and their applications having been a specialist in the UK for over 10 years, says the company. At PaperlinX, Paul managed large signage and POS customers calling upon his extensive background in production and quality management. His key relationships with aluminium composite suppliers, has been fundamental to ensure the right products have been brought into the proBOND portfolio.
Richard Proctor, Managing Director for PPB said: “Our new range of proBOND products carries numerous certifications to demonstrate compliance to all necessary standards, including RoHS and REACH. Our supply partner has been chosen on the basis of its exceptional quality standards. We are also able to jointly support customers on special projects such as colour matching, Traffic Grade ACM, Construction grades, and a wide variety of additional special finishes to match any project requirements.
