EPD document prepared for Asaş B1 Aluminium Composite Panel with registration number S-P-04801 has been registered and published in EPD Turkey and The International EPD System. Registered EPD document applies to all global markets.
Aluminum composite panels, also called as ACPs, ACP is an external building cladding material used to create great-looking and durable facades. It consists of two thin powder coated aluminum sheets bonded to a core made of fire retardant thermoplastic resinse with mineral charge. A core can be made of a aluminum, mineral, or a thermoplastic polymer, provide bonding of two powder coated aluminum sheets. Aluminum composite panels has been used in facade cladding for the construction sector because of their light weight and strength, enriching living quarters with internal and external cladding and other special design and production solutions. It provides a wide range of application choices to designer, especially for skyscrapers, custom design modern architectural buildings and airports. It’s great versatility allows the panel to be used as a combination with other materials to cover certain areas of a facade or as the main element in complicated transformations.
Since the aluminum composite panel began its journey in the construction sector, its characteristics have been improving until it has become a highly modifiable product, which admits different forms of assembly, colours, transformations and uses. The used material is economical when it is compared with other choices. The other advantage is that ACP is resistant in terms of stain, UV, chemical, weather, termite, and fungi. Aluminum composite panels require significantly less maintenance than other similar products (such as FC Sheet) due to its PVDF coating and finish. The core material and cover sheets of aluminum composite panel can be recycled and reused. Due to its characteristics, alumnium can be recycled indefinitely.
ASAŞ aluminum composite panel products; while providing solutions on facade cladding systems for the construction industry, adds value to living spaces with design and production solutions for industrial and architectural interior – exterior cladding and other special applications.
Composite panels produced within ASAŞ; is assured in quality with high quality PVDF painted aluminum sheet and an interior fire-retardant core in accordance with UNE EN 13501 standard. The FR (Fire Retardant) type panels interior fire-retardant core is made of thermoplastic resins with mineral charge. Its reaction to fire classification B-s1, d0 (according to UNE EN 13501-1:2007), makes it a coating material that fulfils most of the architectural applications.
The composite panel is produced by a continuous lamination process, in which a sheet of the material that will make up the core is extruded and compacted between two aluminum sheets that are unwound at the same time. Finally, the flatness of the material is compacted and perfected and a protective film is applied
