A sandwich panel is any structure made of three layers: Sandwich panels are used in applications where a combination of high structural rigidity and low weight is required. Sandwich panels are an example of a sandwich structured composite: Its versatility means that the panels have many applications and come in many forms: Enclosed panels are termed cassettes. One obvious application is in aircraft, where mechanical performance and weight-saving are essential. Transportation and automotive applications also exist.
In building and construction, these prefabricated products designed for use as building envelopes. They appear in industrial and office buildings, in clean and cold rooms and also in private houses, whether renovation or new-build. They combine a high-quality product with high flexibility regarding design. They generally have a good energy-efficiency and sustainability. In packaging, applications include fluted polypropylene boards and polypropylene honeycomb boards.
Structural insulated panels , or structural insulating panels , SIP , are panels used as a building material.
Aluminium composite panels ACP , made of aluminium composite material ACM , are flat panels consisting of two thin coil-coated aluminium sheets bonded to a non-aluminium core. ACPs are frequently used for external cladding or facades of buildings, insulation, and signage. ACP is mainly used for external and internal architectural cladding or partitions, false ceilings, signage, machine coverings, container construction, etc. Applications of ACP are not limited to external building cladding, but can also be used in any form of cladding such as partitions, false ceilings, etc.

ACP is also widely used within the signage industry as an alternative to heavier, more expensive substrates. ACP has been used as a light-weight but very sturdy material in construction, particularly for transient structures like trade show booths and similar temporary elements. It has recently also been adopted as a backing material for mounting fine art photography, often with an acrylic finish using processes like Diasec or other face-mounting techniques. These structures made optimal use of ACP through its cost, durability, and efficiency.
Its flexibility, low weight, and easy forming and processing allow for innovative design with increased rigidity and durability. Where the core material is flammable, the usage must be considered. These materials do not have good fire-resistant FR properties unless specially treated and are therefore not generally suitable as a building material for dwellings; several jurisdictions have banned their use completely.

Concerning the core, it says that distance of the panel from the ground is a determinant of "which materials are safer to use". It shows that the Reynobond polyethylene product is for up to circa 10 meters; the fire-retardant product c.
