As a kind of high-tech composite material, aluminum-plastic composite panel has been researched and developed in Europe since the 1960s. It has been more than 30 years old, and its various properties are constantly improving and improving. Exist in the transportation industry, the construction industry and certain special industries, such as the advertising industry. Especially in the construction industry, it is very popular because of its light weight per unit area, high relative strength, ease of processing and installation. From the interior of the building to the outdoor decoration, from the low-rise buildings to the high-rise buildings, aluminum-plastic panels can be seen. At the same time, foreign countries have a very strict and certified operation specification in the application process of aluminum-plastic composite panels to ensure that the aluminum-plastic composite panels can be used correctly. Especially when the product is applied to a building, its product certification and use unit must strictly abide by relevant regulations. Due to the strict certification system, the application of foreign composite aluminum-plastic composite panels, especially in Europe, has been moving forward for more than 30 years, and new products and systems have emerged.
Aluminum-plastic composite panel is a new type of ecological environment building material. Since its invention in the 1970s, it has been widely used for its comprehensive composite material structure and characteristics, excellent cost performance and easy processing, rich decorative effects and durability, significant resource conservation and environmental protection. In the building curtain wall, indoor and outdoor decoration, advertising plaques, car and boat decoration, furniture manufacturing and other fields. Aluminum-plastic composite panels are often used in urban landmarks such as airports, large stadiums and theaters. Therefore, they are highly regarded as important products related to national economy and people's livelihood. After entering the 21st century, along with the rapid development of China's construction industry, especially the successful bidding for the Beijing Olympic Games and the Shanghai World Expo, the aluminum-plastic composite panels are the third-generation curtain wall materials that the architects call after the stone (ceramic tiles) and glass. , got a rapid development.
According to incomplete statistics, there are more than 300 aluminum-plastic composite board enterprises in the country, and 204 aluminum-plastic composite board manufacturing enterprises according to the national statistical caliber (all state-owned and non-state-owned industrial enterprises with annual sales income of more than 5 million RMB). Distributed in Guangdong, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shandong, Jiangxi and other places, the number of employees is about 45,000, of which non-state-owned enterprises have more than 80%. In 2008, the industry achieved a profit of about 1.8 billion RMB and annual sales of nearly 20 billion RMB. In 2008, the output of aluminum-plastic composite panels was 220 million square meters, ranking first in the world, accounting for more than 80% of the world's total output. China is the world's largest producer, consumer and exporter of aluminum-plastic composite panels, and the quality of some companies has reached or exceeded the level of advanced countries.
After more than 15 years of development, the aluminum-plastic composite panel industry has a production value of nearly 20 billion RMB in 2008. In the past ten years, the average annual growth rate has been around 20%. The aluminum-plastic composite panel industry has become a new economic growth point in the field of building materials for the national economy. At the same time, a number of enterprises with the world's leading scale in the same industry in terms of production capacity, production equipment, production technology and product quality have emerged.
The export of China's aluminum-plastic composite panel products has achieved substantial growth for several consecutive years. In 2008, the products have been exported to 103 countries and regions, including exports to developed countries. The annual export volume of aluminum-plastic composite panels is about 65 million square meters, and exports earned 910 million US dollars. It has realized the transformation from self-production and self-sales at the end of the last century to the large number of exports at the beginning of this century. At present, China's aluminum-plastic composite panels have accounted for more than 85% of the world's import and export trade volume.
