Areas of application

For universal use in preventive fire protection to reduce the spread of flame. Particularly useful where non-flammable materials are required and high demands are made on the design and ease of care. The area of application covers decorative interior fitting as furniture, installations and wall coverings in corridors and stairways (escape routes) in standard buildings, but also for higher demands in special buildings such as high-rise apartment blocks, large office buildings, hospitals, care facilities, schools, day nurseries, hotels, sales rooms and public areas, etc. Use in wet areas and outdoors, as well as mechanical surface stress, is not recommended.

Product safety

  • This product follows the REACH regulation EC 1907/2006 an article. Following Article 7 it does not need to be registered.
  • The surface is physiologically safe, and approved for direct contact with food acc. to Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011.
  • The decorative surface and the core consists of paper layers that are impregnated with thermosetting resins. The resins harden completely during the manufacturing process by heat and high pressure. They form a stable, resistant and non-reactive material.

Special

  • Please comply with information for Duropal flameprotect compact collection.

Product handling

Machines and tools

  • Machining can be carried out on all common machining equipment and processing apparatus.
  • Cut-to-size saw:
    - cutting speed: 65-75 m/sec
    - infeed: up to 100 m/min for single cuts, up to 70 m/min for pallets of boards
    - saw blade projection: 15 - 30 mm
    sizing circular saw:
    - cutting speed: 65-75 m/sec
    - saw blade projection: 15 - 30 mm
  • Diamond tipped tools are suitable for machining and processing.

Edging

  • Machining can be carried out on all common machining equipment and processing apparatus.
  • Cut-to-size saw:
    - cutting speed: 65-75 m/sec
    - infeed: up to 100 m/min for single cuts, up to 70 m/min for pallets of boards
    - saw blade projection: 15 - 30 mm
    sizing circular saw:
    - cutting speed: 65-75 m/sec
    - saw blade projection: 15 - 30 mm
  • Diamond tipped tools are suitable for machining and processing.
  • It is generally recommended to seal the edges.
  • EVA and PUR hotmelts are recommended for edge adhesion.

Fitting technology

  • All conventional removable and non-removable fittings for wood materials, compact laminates and mineral boards are suitable.
  • Under the general building inspectorate approval, connections and fastenings with adhesive systems are not permitted for applications.
  • Under mounts can also be used for fixing wall coverings, e.g.
    - Keil under mount: seating depth 7 mm in a 9 mm board, breaking load 1.7 kN
    - Fischer under mount FZP-N: seating depth 5 mm in a 9-mm-board, medium breaking load 1.3 kN

Installation and assembly

  • Please always ensure proper machining and installation according to the current available technology. Special attention must be paid to the material properties given its high mineral content.
  • Sufficient conditioning is required prior to installation. The premises themselves need to be air-conditioned according to the future use.
  • Ensure good rear ventilation and climate equilibrium on both sides in the installed condition. For adequate air circulation the void should be at least 20 mm. It is important to interrupt horizontal substructures as well as the top and bottom ends of the wall panelling so that vertical rear ventilation is possible. Avoid direct fixing on the surface without air gap.
  • Protect the substructure against corrosion.
  • The base may not be moist or instable. Please make sure that minimum carrying capacity and stability correspond to the usage.
  • Newly built walls (made of brick or concrete or plastered walls) contain considerable amounts of moisture. Before covering them with panels they must be completely dried out.
  • Ensure that there is an adequate area of “play” for the panel after installation; drill holes should be over-sized by a minimum of 0.5 mm.
  • Make sure that expansion of installed elements is not prevented. Please observe that when panels are combined with other materials their coefficients of expansion may differ.
  • The material must not be exposed to heat influences by light- or heat radiation which will increase the surface temperature to more than 70°C.
  • Please also refer to the current building inspection regulations. Panels must be mechanically fixed on the base with non-flammable fastenings.
  • Especially for large applications, we recommend paying attention to the colour and texture unifomity of the boards and cut products used when further processing and installing and that the production direction is taken into account.

Storage, handling and transport

  • Panels must be fully and horizontally stored with edges flush on a flat and clean base covered with plastic foil. Cover the top panel fully with foil and a cover board.
  • Protect from moisture and wet conditions.
  • Avoid direct exposure to heat and any possible dehydration of the surfaces by light- or heat radiation or by air currents from heating- or air conditioning systems.
  • Foreign bodies or impurities in the pallet of sheets can lead to impressions and damage to the surface of the board.
  • Sheets / boards must not be moved against each other; they should be moved individually by hand or with suction equipment.
  • Ensure that sufficiently large and sturdy bases, e.g. pallets, are used for the transportation of stacked sheets. The sheets on the pallet must be secured against slipping.

Health and safety

  • Provide adequate extraction when splitting/sanding.
  • Provide adequate ventilation and fresh air supply.
  • Suck (vacuum) dust when cleaning; do not blow.
  • Work clothes should cover the body entirely (trunk, legs and arms) whilst processing these panels.
  • Use the usual products for skin protection (creams etc.).
  • We advise operators to wear a face mask (P2).
  • Please wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when processing and handling.

Cleaning and care

  • The surface can be cleaned with water and gentle cleaning agents.

Disposal

  • When machining large quantities, we advice using a separate saw dust extraction. Offcuts and large amounts of saw dust are to be collect and disposed of separately.
