PROMATECT®-L

ADVANTAGES

  • Resistant to the effects of moisture
  • Not physically deteriorate when used in damp or humid conditions
  • Performance characteristics are not degraded by age or moisture
  • Does not encourage mould growth and is resistant to attack by vermin

Matrix Engineered Mineral Board

PROMATECT®-L is a lightweight mineral matrix engineered board which is white in colour and has a smooth sanded surface on one face with a lightly honeycombed texture on the reverse face.

PROMATECT®-L is resistant to the effects of moisture and will not physically deteriorate when used in damp or humid conditions. Performance characteristics are not degraded by age or moisture. Untreated surfaces will absorb water which can cause some loss of strength but strength is regained after drying. PROMATECT®-L does not encourage mould growth and is resistant to attack by vermin.

PROMATECT®-L is chemically inert and is resistant to diluted acids and alkalis. Boards should be protected where high chemical concentrations are likely to occur.

Applications

  • Structural Steel
  • Ductwork
  • M&E Services Enclosures
  • Access Panels & Hatches

HEALTH & SAFETY

A health and safety data sheet is available from Promat and, as with any other material, should be read before working with the board.

 

WASTE DISPOSAL

The board is not classified as a dangerous substance so no special provisions are required regarding the transportation and the disposal of the product to landfill. They can be placed in on-site rubbish skips with other general building waste which should then be disposed by a registered contractor in the appropriate and approved manner.
