Swathed in a mellow sheen

3A Composites launches new ALUCOBOND® terra surfaces cladding to imitate the beauty and iridescence of stone

In association with

Stone and crystal stand for endurance, authenticity and intrinsic value. They reflect light in a magical, vibrant way and their texture is unexpectedly varied, ranging from rough to smooth. 3A Composite's new ALUCOBOND® terra is inspired by iridescent stone. The décor’s surface refracts daylight, creating a matt sheen and lustrous hues which are sometimes elegant and sometimes earthy. ALUCOBOND® terra unites the typical crystalline surface and velvety feel found in natural stone with many of the advantages of ALUCOBOND® composite panels. Unlike most natural stone, ALUCOBOND®  composite panels are both very thin and light, but offer at the same time a high level of flexural and tensile strength. Large format panels can be easily and accurately fabricated, processed, transported, installed, and, in addition, three-dimensionally shaped by using folding and roll bending techniques. Unlike many stone surfaces, ALUCOBOND® terra is also weather-resistant and colour fast.
