What’s the worst thing that can happen with your enterprise? It being subjected to natural or manmade disasters. No I’ll be honest with you, the disasters are pretty bad regardless of who or what you are. Even with the convenience we have today thanks to technology and science, we are still subjected to Mother Nature’s wrath. However, we have made some progress in the race to avoid destruction of our property at the hands of such disasters, particularly fire. Fire related disasters are some of the most common disasters we face in our lives. And they can cause significant damage to our property and our lives in general. Fortunately we have a solution to this problem, which lies in the variant of the Aluminum Composite Panel.

Difference between fireproof Aluminum Composite Panel and regular Aluminum Composite Panel:

In essence the regular variant and the Fireproof Aluminum Composite Panel are similar in construction, the difference lies within the fire retardants in the makeup of the latter. Fireproof Aluminum Composite Panel have substances such as aluminum oxide, magnesium oxide, aluminum hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide in their makeup which allows them to resist flames for a little while.

Applications:

Fireproof Aluminum Composite Panels are just like their regular counterparts except the difference is that they wont catch fire and can tolerate a lot of heat. They have all the standard properties of a regular ACP, along with fire resistant properties. They are strong, durable, flexible and light just like regular ACP, with the addition of the capacity to resist flames for a while. They are used in external and internal architectural cladding or partitions, false ceilings, signage, machine coverings, container constructions, etc. They are also used in Decorative renovation for storey-added old buildings and  making of Advertisement board, shop face decorating, display platforms and signboards. As you can guess the signs are displayed in a place where they are subjected to a variety of environmental conditions (including extreme outdoor heat), from rain to hail to sunshine to snow and what not. The properties of the fireproof Aluminum Composite Panel make it able to withstand all that punishment. Plus in the event of a fire, there is no damage to the sign. They are also used to make Wallboard and ceilings for tunnels; Circular columns for outside use.  Now there are a lot of other materials available for the construction of sign boards and othr uses that I have llisted above, but fireproof ACP remains a favorite among manufacturers because when we come down to the cost of the materials involved aluminum and polyethylene is much cheaper. There are different thicknesses in which the material is available, but this thickness does not affect its final application.

There are many other materials available in the market, but this material is an all rounder in many regards. We have seen its many uses in this article, and it continues to be used in such uses.
