Aluminium U-profile 3mm

Our 3mm aluminium U-profiles are suitable as edge profiles for all panels with a thickness of 3mm and are corrosion-resistant thanks to their manufacture from anodised aluminium in a solid construction and can therefore be used both indoors and outdoors.

✓ Anodised aluminium
✓ Corrosion resistant
✓ For 3mm panel thicknesses
✓ High inherent rigidity
✓ Smooth surfaces

The end profiles in 3mm are available in our shop as a standard length in 2 metres at favourable prices.

Aluminium U-profiles as end profiles for 3mm panels

Anodised surfaces ✓ For indoor & outdoor ✓ Smooth surfaces ✓

Our aluminium U-profiles are made of solid aluminium with a profile thickness of 1mm and are then anodised for optimum protection against the weather. With a clamping range of 3mm, the silver profiles are ideal as end profiles for covering the edges of aluminium composite panels or our acrylic gas GS panels, which we offer in transparent, coloured or with a self-luminous fluorescent effect in a cut-to-size version.

Due to the low profile thickness, the profiles with a length of 2000mm can be very easily shortened to the required dimension with simple tools. The low thickness also has the advantage that the dead weight of the profiles is very low and yet contributes to a significant increase in bending stiffness, which is sometimes quite low in some plastic panels with 3mm panel thickness.

NOTE: The aluminium end profiles are simply attached to the cut edge of the panels for installation. Especially with smooth surfaces, as is the case with aluminium composite panels, additional bonding with an MS polymer is recommended to ensure a permanent hold.

Scope of delivery:

  • 1 x aluminium U-profile 3mm 2000mm length

TIP: We only stock the aluminium U-profiles in the standard length of 2000mm. A simple hand saw with a metal saw blade is sufficient for shortening the end profiles. For a precise cutting result, especially when mitre cutting, we recommend the use of a mitre saw with a suitable saw blade.

Properties of the aluminium end profile in 3mm

We only use anodised aluminium for our aluminium profiles, so that the profiles can be used outdoors without hesitation. During anodising, a protective layer is applied to the smooth, silver surfaces, which is created by anodic oxidation. Through this process of surface treatment, we achieve the greatest possible protection against corrosion, so that environmental and weather influences have no effect on the longevity of the decorative profiles.

Application and assembly of the aluminium U-profiles in 3mm

Anodised aluminium is characterised by outstanding corrosion resistance. This is an essential property when the U-profiles for aluminium composite panels are to be used outdoors. The profiles are simply placed on the cut edges of the panels and effectively cover the black polyethylene core, which is typical for aluminium composite panels in sandwich construction. Depending on the application, an additional bonding with an MS polymer is helpful for an optimal hold without slipping of the profiles. Especially for sheets with a smooth surface, as is the case with the aluminium composite sheets and acrylic glass sheets in 3mm thickness, bonding can be extremely useful.

NOTE: Our U-profiles with a clamping range of 3mm are available in a length of 2000mm. In addition, we also offer H-profiles and outer corner profiles for panels with identical clamping range at favourable prices.

Application examples

  • The aluminium U-profiles are perfectly suitable as end profiles for our 3mm aluminium composite panels
  • U-profiles can be used as framing for advertising signs and digital prints on Alu-Dibond
  • For aluminium composite panels, the U-profile hides the black polyethylene core at cut edges
  • The thin U-profiles are also ideally suited for our clear or coloured acrylic GS in 3mm
  • Aluminium U-profiles effectively prevent damage to sharp cut edges of the aluminium face sheets
