Top 5 Fascinating Facts Less Known About VIVA and Its Aluminum Composite Panels
Contemporary architecture has become more about reflecting the personalities of the builders and owners. Many trends have come and gone in the past, but one trend that has flourished and continues to evolve with time is the use of aluminium composite panels.
It was long ago in 2003 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, that VIVA began its humble journey. Our business revolves around customer satisfaction, and we are consistently striving for excellence.
Let us take some time to explore some of the most intriguing facts about VIVA and its ACP cladding.
1.Fire-resistant – ACP cladding produces relatively less smoke than wood or plastics, and the smoke they produce mostly comprises nontoxic water vapour that does not contribute to suffocation in the event of a fire. Consequently, this leads to safer evacuations and fewer casualties. VIVA’s ACP panels can withstand fire for about 2hours. VIVA is the first manufacturing company in India to introduce ACCP (Aluminium Core Corrugated Panels) of FR Class A2+.
2. Strong physical characteristics – ACPs are corrosion resistant and can resist extreme temperatures ranging from -50° to +80°. In addition, the low density of the core of our ACP panels provides exceptional dimensional stability and insulation properties (both heat and noise), keeping the building cooler and quieter. UV resistance is another advantage of ACP sheets. The thin aluminium coils are durable, impact-resistant, and feature a flat surface design to meet the expectations of the modern lifestyle.

3. Customizable – ACP boards can be customized according to the architecture style to mimic a wide range of textures, including wood, stainless steel, mirror, and stone. Moreover, ACP sheets can be bent into any shape, including convex, concave, diamond, dome, etc. VIVA’s ACP sheets have a reputation for sterling quality, intricate designs, and an array of refreshing colors and textures. We love spoiling our clients for choice by offering them the creative liberty to choose from our 300 shades of ACP sheet designs. If our range of hues does not appeal to you or does not meet your needs, then we also take custom orders for specific shades and lengths according to your preferences.
4. Ecologically friendly material: ACP panels are made of recycled materials such as aluminum, polymer, and minerals. As a result, our planet’s natural resources are preserved. Moreover, it is possible to recycle them easily without compromising their quality or value. Their energy-saving capabilities make them a highly valued component of solar, photovoltaic, and other systems. VIVA’s production facility is equipped with a solar power generator that generates 850 kWh of power and enables the efficient production of ACP sheets.
5. Nontoxic – ACP sheets of the highest quality are manufactured following strict industry standards and quality control measures. The health of workers is often compromised in industries like Marble which is why they suffer from rheumatoid pneumoconiosis – a disease caused by prolonged exposure to silica dust. Additionally, ACP sheets are printed with lead-free, VOC-free paints, minimizing the emission of hazardous fumes and toxic gases. There are 60 different types of testing equipment in our in-house testing labs, which we use to ensure product quality. VIVA’s aluminium composite panels are manufactured using materials sourced only from certified and trusted manufacturers in the industry. Hindalco, a company owned by Aditya Birla, supplies us with alloy aluminum coils of the 3003/ 3105/5000 series. The paints we use come from reputable brands like Nippon Paints, Monopol Colours, AkzoNobel, PPG Paints.
VIVA has contributed to the growth of the ACP sheet industry by fostering a culture of trust and reliability.
Hopefully, the above-stated facts about ACP cladding in general and VIVA, in particular, will satisfy your curiosity as to why our products are unique.
