PROMINA®-HD

Fibre Silicate Board

PROMINA®-HD is a non combustible fibre silicate board manufactured from a homogeneous mixture of Portland cement with selected fibres and fillers. It does not contain formaldehyde.

PROMINA®-HD is off-white in colour and has a smooth finish on one face with a dimple pattern on the reverse face. The architectural appeal of the board surface is ready for most forms of decoration.

PROMINA®-HD 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.

PROMINAM®-HD is suitable for both internal and external applications. It is also designed to withstand the most demanding exposure conditions experienced in external applications as well as being hard wearing, impact and abrasion resistant.

Applications

  • Partitions & External Walls
  • Cavity & Smoke Barriers
  • Fire Doors

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.
