The Ultimate ACM

A reflection of quality

The reflective surfaces of DIBOND mirrors offer outstanding reflection properties similar to those of a conventional glass mirror without the breakability of glass and at about half the weight. DIBOND mirrors create more light, space and transparency in interiors and is a popular option for designing interior spaces such as shops, hotels, bars and other leisure facilities. The mirror surfaces can be both screen- and digitally printed, as well as laser engraved, making them a unique solution for advertising & signage. The high-quality finish combined with the excellent processing properties of DIBOND lends it as an ideal solution for a wide range of design applications.

Material Composition

DIBOND mirrors are comprised of sheets of .012” aluminum with mirrored surface, bonded to a solid polyethylene core. Manufactured by 3A Composites GmbH.

Case Histories


Architects Rejuvenate Cultural Services Center by Upcycling 200 DIBOND® Panels In Creative Installation

© Andrea Zanchi The Centro Servizi Culturali Santa Chiara is a cultural services center situated in the northern mountains of Italy, in the province of Trento. The Center offers cultural arts events to the public, such as musical and theatrical performances, and historical installations as well as meeting and event spaces. Along with the Center's two theaters, an adjoining urban park links different parts of the city attracting people of all ages and cultures. Unfortunately, part of the Centro Servizi has been uninhabited for ages and in a severe state of disrepair despite the fact that it is partially protected by "Sovrintendenza dei Beni architettonici", a cultural heritage committee. Except for graffiti of a modest artistic level, there are offensive and xenophobic writings on the walls, evidence not only of urban but also civil decay. Local architects Elisa Burnazzi and Davide Feltrin, co-owners of Burnazzi Feltrin Architetti, have rejuvenated the entry way to the Centro Servizi by upcycling approximately 200 DIBOND® panels recovered from billboards used to advertise past performances at the Centro Servizi.
