Aluminium : Dura-Clad
Dura-Clad: Cladding Sheets:

Dura-Clad® panel is made from Aluminium Alloy AA3003 H24 temper, which is widely used, in marine and industrial applications. Its is superior in flatness and non-combustible DIN Standard.

Dura-Clad® is manufactured from state of art coil-coating system using PVF2/PVDF (Kynar 500/ Hylar 5000 resin) paint. It comes in 2 coats for solid colour or 3 coats for metallic finish. Dura-Clad® is highly consistent in colour stability , gloss retention, resistance to UV-A, UV-B & UV-C radiation and remains very beautiful for a very long time.

Standards For Fire Requirement

Dura-Clad® with PVF2/PVDF Fluorocarbon coatings have been tested and approved by SIRIM for :-

  Certification No
BS476 Part 6 : Fire Propagation for Products 2001FE0006
BS476 Part 7 : Surface Spread of Flame Test for Materials 2001FE0001

Dura-Clad® Panels COMPLY with the Fire Requirements for Materials specified Under the Malaysia Uniform Building By-Laws (UBBL) 1984.

* Index I indicates fire propagation index is 0.8
* Class One indicates surface of surface spread of Flame.

Coil Coating Process

Coating on a high speed technologically advanced paint-line. Surface pre-treatment by Chromating, cover layers, primer and stoving of paint at temperatures between 249°C to 254°C. Wet film thickness 59-67 microns ensures excellent durability and excellent Surface finishes for exterior applications.
