Density – essential indicator of a material’s cohesion when it is machine-worked

Considering the complexity of all the features of Valchromat panels, in this article we intend to explore one of its most valuable properties, the utility of which is largely unanimous as regards the customers’ requirements: density.

Density is a weight indicator. When one compares two objects of equal volume, the object with the most weight is the object with the higher density.

From the point of view of Valchromat panels, the higher the density of the panel, the greater will be its compactness and the internal cohesion of the particles of which it comprises, which brings advantages when it is machine-worked or milled.

This feature derives from the raw materials that comprise the panel, lending it a solidity so that when the panel is worked on and put through machines, it will remain consistent, without its interior disintegrating or flaking. We can conclude that the greater density of the panel enables it to be of better quality when machine-worked or milled.

This feature of Valchromat panels is one of their great advantages, as it makes the material almost malleable, without interior disintegration and with minimum peeling, paving the way for the construction of linear and organic shapes in a variety of patterns of colours and textures without losing the product’s identity.

Comparing Valchromat panels with waterproof panels of equal thickness made by other manufacturers, we can conclude that the Valchromat panels have higher density levels.
