The manufacturer of world-first A1 non-combustible cladding — ALPOLIC NC/A1, Mitsubishi Chemical Infratec, has released a new video outlining the benefits of this fire-safe aluminium composite material with a non-combustible mineral core that contains zero polyethylene.
Mitsubishi Chemical Infratec adds: "On 14 January 2020, Mitsubishi Chemical Infratec (MCIT; Head office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo; President: Yuichi Fukui) announced its new aluminium composite material (ACM) ALPOLIC has passed European Fire Standard 'Euroclass A1', which is considered one of the strictest fire protection standards for building materials in the world. This is the first ACM in the world that is certified under the Euroclass A1 standard. With stronger fire standards taking effect globally in recent years, MCIT has already launched its sale under the product name ALPOLIC NC in Australia/New Zealand and will begin to promote it under the name of ALPOLIC A1 in Europe and other markets responding to strong market demands for a non-combustible ACM as a substitute for solid aluminium and other materials."
Not only does it achieve the highest possible European Fire Standard, Euroclass A1, which substantially outperforms solid aluminium and cement cladding product options. It is also the first Aluminium Composite Material product to fall under Category D (non-combustible) in the Insurance Council of Australia Hazard Identification and Category Rating guide.
ALPOLIC NC/A1 is exclusively available in New Zealand from PSP Limited. Visit the ALPOLIC website to find out more.
