Fire Retardant

FR Retardant ACP

EUROBOND fire rated ACPs are composed of fire-resistant mineral filled core sandwiched between two skins of a selected thickness of architectural aluminium skin of engineered alloys such as 3003 / 5005 with Kynar 500(PVDF) a lacquered surface on front and service coated on the rear. FR retardant ACPs can be processed and fabricated as any other ACP panel and are very tough and weatherproof and, above all, do not actively contribute to combustion in the fire.

 

APPLICATIONS: Fire retardant panels are used in residential buildings, public utility buildings such as indoor and mega studio, museums, theatre buildings, art galleries, corporate headquarter and offices, malls and supermarkets, car showrooms, fuel filling stations, etc. This is also for a corporate identity for organizations that wants to create a new image-building (Corporate Design).


Our Fire Retardant ACPs are going to satisfy all the below standards effortlessly and it would even outperform and remain close to the A2 class of fire retardant building materials.

Fire safety in buildings is determined by the provisions available in building construction in its design and materials so that in case of any such man made or natural accidents such as fire does have minimum impact on loss of life or injuries. So in case of fire the building materials must be such it should able to withstand or facilitate the firefighting and escape of people in such a manner that loss to life is negligible and then to the property.

 

EUROBOND FR comes handy here has its FR ACP with a mineral filled core which reduces the intensity and spread of fire with low smoke emission and a non- toxic smoke facilitates safer escape routes and facilitate to better firefighting approach.
