The World’s First: Mitsubishi Chemical’s ALPOLIC™ Aluminum Composite Material Achieves European Fire Standard “Euroclass A1”

 

 

ALPOLIC™ A1

ALPOLIC™ AI is a fire safe aluminium composite material with a non-combustible mineral core that contains zero polyethylene. ALPOLIC™ AI can be used as an exterior or interior cladding and roof coverings in both new buildings and re-clad applications wherever a non-combustible material is required.

Flatness Color Uniformity Finish Durability Anti Corrosion Workability Rigidity Ecology Warranty
ALPOLIC™- Al has the excellent flatness derived from the continuous laminating process. The state of the art Die Coater coil coating process ensures complete color consistency Molecular structure of Lumifton™ has a higher bond energy than UV ray, thus provides superior UV resistance and enhance finish durability. Proven durability in Australian conditions for over 25 years. Coating on reverse side of ALPOLIC™ prevents galvanic corrosion with dissimilar metals on the building structure Easy to process with ordinary fabrication machines and tools ALPOLIC™ AI has superior rigidity 4mm thick panel is equivalent to 33mm thick solid aluminum in rigidity Recyclable and environmentally friendly CO2 emission during manufacturing process is 482 % lower than 33 mm thick solid aluminium (1895 kg – CO2 / m2 vs 36.57 kg – CO2 / m2) ALPOLIC™ AI is backed by globally trusted brand -MITSUBISHI CHEMICAL CORPORATION- The 20-year coating warranty is available.

Core material combustibility comparison

(At present, all other ACM brands could at most meet Euroclass A2 standard.)

MCC is conscious and concern about fire safety and will continually takes a proactive stance in promoting ALPOLIC™ AI / ALPOLIC™ AI to the world.
