Eurobond - FR

1. General
EUROBOND-FR is an aluminum composite panel (ACP) with a non-combustible mineral-filled core. Used as an exterior and interior cladding and roof covering on new buildings and retrofit applications, the material is manufactured by Eurobond Industries Pvt. Ltd., and furnished by approved dealers or distributors.

2. Product Composition
EUROBOND-FR is composed of a non-combustible mineral-filled core sandwiched between two skins of 0.5mm thick aluminum alloy (1100-H18):


Composition

Skin Material

0.5mm thick aluminum (1100-H18)

Core Material

Non-combustible mineral filled core


The surface is finished with a high-performance KYNAR 500 based fluorocarbon coating, and the back is a anti corrosive coating or service coating. EUROBOND-FR is available in Solid Colors and Metallic Colors. In these finishes, KYNAR 500 based fluorocarbon paints are applied in manufacturer's continuous coil coating lines. The KYNAR 500 based fluorocarbon coating complies with the "specification for coated coil for exterior building applications" issued by both the ECCA (European Coil Coating Association) and the AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association). Refer to "6. Paint finishes" below for details on EUROBOND-FR paint finishes.
The back of EUROBOND-FR (which will face the structural wall or steel when it is installed as a cladding panel) has a polyester-based wash coating or service coating to protect it from possible corrosion problems.
The surface is protected with a self-adhesive peel-off protective film consisting of two polyethylene layers of white and black. According to weathering tests under normal outdoor conditions, the protective film will withstand six months' exposure without losing its original peel-off characteristic or causing stains or other damages.
