No toxic gas occurrence and helps create an environmentally friendly product.
The new non-combustible mineral core material is ideally suited for high-rise construction and has passed the various fire safety codes that are required throughout the world.
Produced under the feed block roll injection system, not a pressing system, which allows the superiority in flatness to be maintained.
Cutting, bending, grooving, curving are very easily accomplished with aluminum working machines.
PVdF pre-coated surface, not sprayed, allows ALCOTEX/FR to retain excellent color consistency and to diversify colors by elimination of the color inequality and surface uneveness.
A light and strong sheet material with an apparent specific gravity of 1.2 to 2.0, reducing weight by 40% (ALCOTEX) to 15% (ALCOTEX/FR) compared with solid aluminum sheet with equivalent rigidity.
