ALCADEX – AS1530.1 certified non-combustible aluminium composite materials

Recent fire related incidents in Australia and the Middle East led to the creation of the most advanced aluminium composite material (ACM) in the world.

The Australian building industry has been searching for a solution which allows for an ACM to be fully rated as non-combustible as tested to Australian Standard AS 1530.1

In collaboration with CSP Architectural and SGI Architectural Alcadex have formulated a core compound that combines inorganic and organic materials that is completely resistant to fire, achieving the highest fire standard possible.

Extensive test data has been produced in laboratories with testing finally completed in Australia by the CSIRO which confirms ALCADEX as a non-combustible material.

Australian fire engineers have provided extensive evaluation and analysis in regard to the fire performance of Alcadex. The results of the analysis prove without doubt that Alcadex is the most functional fire resistant ACM in the world.
