MAX-metal HD

MAX-metal HD

MAX-metal™ HD is an aluminum composite panel that is comprised of two .30mm aluminum sheets bonded to a solid polyethylene core. Although MAX-metal HD sets itself apart from other MAX-metal products due to its aluminum sheets being twice as thick as standard MAX-metal panels, it is still extremely durable and has a finish ready for your application. MAX-metal™ HD is recommended for scoring & bending.
