Spotlight: Dibond ACM by Chroma Imaging

Chroma Imaging became a Design Pool partner in early 2021. Once we got talking with their CEO and co=founder Felix Wijaya, we realized they can print a wide range of different types of products. Based in Herndon, Virginia, with another location in Kissimmee, Florida, Chroma Imaging is a design and production company. They specialize in large format printing and custom visual solutions. They excel at helping designers create a unique vision for any project on any budget and finding the perfect substrate for their project. One of those interesting substrates is Dibond ACM (aluminum composite material).

Things to know about Chroma Imaging Dibond ACM:

  • Their DIBOND/Chemmetal/ACM comes in three colors: white faced, brushed aluminum, and brushed brass
  • Thicknesses available are 2 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm
  • Available sizes are 48″ x 96″, 48” x 120”, 60” x 96”, 60” x 120”
  • They do offer installation, but it is dependent on location. Additional fees apply for installation.

The primary advantage of ACM is its versatility.

ACM panels can be easily cut, routed, fabricated, mounted, and installed using everyday tools. In addition to its eye-catching designs and durability, it remains flat over time, which reduces the oil can and rippling appearance. ACM panels are also approximately half the weight of traditional aluminum and are widely considered a more cost-effective solution than similarly gauged aluminum sheets.

ACM possesses excellent UV resistance, scratch resistance, and weatherability. It has anti-corrosion skin and is easy to clean, allowing the material to maintain its sleek and brilliant look.

Regarding signage and display applications, the benefits of using ACM are extensive. For example, ACM readily accepts traditional inks and paints, is digitally printable, and readily accepts PSA print media. Additionally, ACM meets UL compliance in accordance with UL879 as a component for sign accessories and may be used to construct type II electrical enclosures.
