Fire Safety

ALPOLIC/fr is a fire-safe material, passing mandatory requirements for exterior and interior in most countries. Though the core material does contain a small amount of combustible polyethylene, the main ingredient of the mineral does not permit the proliferation of flame and restricts the development of the smoke detrimental to the evacuation activities. ALPOLIC®, on the other hand, is composed of two skins of aluminum that prevents fast spread of fire frame. ALPOLIC and its affiliated products pass the following fire tests.
