Technical Details – Properties Of Fire Retardant ACP Sheets

Viva’s FR Aluminium Composite Panel sheets can take on the wrath of fire

 

The rapid development of cities has led to the emergence of higher-rise buildings. Hence, the need of the hour is to facilitate safety measures to fight fire accidents.

VIVA has acknowledged the grave issue of fire protection. We have come up with ACP sheets that have excellent fire-retardant properties.

Our fire-retardant aluminum composite panels are available in FR Class B, FR Class A2and FR Class A2+. VIVA’s FR A2 ACP boards are made of 90% non-halogenated, inorganic material that produces water vapor in the initial combustion stage and discourages the propagation of flame. This is because it has mineral content in it in the ratio of 90:10. Viva also has FR Class B ACP which contains Aluminium Hydroxide and magnesium Hydroxide. FR Class B has 70:30 mineral content ratio.

Viva has been the first company in India to introduce FR Class A2+ ACCP (Aluminium Core Corrugated Panel). With its best in class fire rating to fight fire, you can be rest assured in any such circumstances of Fire. Viva’s fire retardant ACP comprises FR Class B, FR class A2 and FR Class A2+. Viva has been the first company in India to have its FR Class B, FR Class A2 and FR Class A2+ accredited with certifications like NFPA 285, EN 13501, ASTM D1929 to name a few.

Below is a glimpse of the properties of our fire-retardant ACP panels.

  • Resist fire for 2 hours
  • NFPA 285 accredited by Thomas Bell-Wright International Consultant
  • Negligible smoke
  • EN 13501-1 certified
  • Low flame droplets
