ALUMAX FR is the non-combustible aluminium composite panel used in architecture. It consists of 3mm non-combustible inorganic mineral filled, polymer bonded halogen free core of LDPE sandwiched between 2 skins of 0.5mm thick Aluminium Coil (alloy designed 3000 H-14/16) making a consolidated panel finished with PVDF(Polyvinylidenflurid) coating containing minimum 70% Kynar 500® and 30% resin or Lumiflon® based coating on the topside. Lumiflon resins are thermo set resins (i.e. cured to form a coating that can’t be melted) they have no melting effect and offer a range of gloss as high as 90% and meets or exceed values expressed in AAMA 2605. ALUMAX FR meets the highest requirements of the fire regulations and is therefore the ideal material for all areas where fire protection plays an important role– be it for high-rise or industrial buildings, public buildings, hospitals, hotels, tunnels or underground stations. Furthermore, with its proven product and processing properties, ALUMAX FR offers architects designers’ unlimited opportunities for realizing their ideas. It is green material, as there is no harmful burning.
During the life cycle of ALUMAX FR composite panels, no environmentally hazardous substances are set free at any time and no toxic fumes are developed in the case of fire.
ALUMAX FR has a non-combustible inorganic mineral filled, polymer bonded halogen free core and therefore generates no harmful gases in case of fire-also usable in areas with fire risk and difficult access for the fire bridge. It has excellent fire resistance compared to normal aluminium composite panel. It is a kind of environmentally friendly building material that offers excellent fire resistance and minimal gas generation when burnt. ALUMAX FR with improved non-combustible mineral core is now under:
ALUMAXhas two kinds of fire retardant aluminum composite panel, B1 class and A2 class. For B1 class fire retardant aluminum composite panel, it contains: 50% – 55% flame retardant, the main ingredients are aluminum oxide (AlO) and magnesium oxide (MgO); When B1 grade panels are put on fire, it can be catch on fire after 5 minutes, and when the fire leave the panels, the fire on the panels will extinguish after 10 seconds.
For A2 class fireproof aluminum composite panel, it Contains 88% – 90% of the flame retardant, the main ingredients are aluminium hydroxide Al(OH)3 and magnesium hydroxide Mg(OH)2; it can be catch on fire after 20 minutes, and the fire will extinguish at once when the fire leave the panels.
