What are the most commonly used materials in wall cladding?

The most common materials used in wall cladding are ACM, HPL, and Zinc. Each have their own unique strengths as an architectural material that should be considered before choosing one for your next project. Some of the highlights include as follows:

ACM: Limitless custom design, excellent manufacturing tolerance combined with redesign potential, crisp, one-piece corners, color durability, excellent module flexibility, lightweight, never rusts, blisters, or bubbles.

HPL: Highly weather resistant, large panel sizes (up to 7’ widths), mold resistant, excellent air flow, UV resistant, increases energy efficiency, lasts for decades, impact, scratch, and graffiti resistant, unique colors and textures

Zinc: Look of natural metal without wild swings in appearance, textural appeal, very low life-cycle costs, 90-100% recyclable, less “embodied energy” than steel or aluminum, self healing, with a naturally developing patina.
