SUPALUX®

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

Calcium Silicate Matrix Board

Promat SUPALUX® is a non combustible calcium silicate matrix board reinforced with selected fibres and fillers. It does not contain formaldehyde.

Promat SUPALUX® is off-white in colour. The front face is smooth and is suitable for any forms of architectural/finishing treatment; the reverse face is sanded. The board can be undecorated or easily finished with paints, wallpapers or tiles.

Promat SUPALUX® is resistant to effects of moisture and will not physically deteriorate in a damp or humid environment. Whilst its performance characteristics are not degraded by moisture or ages, Promat SUPALUX® is not designed for application in areas subject to continual damp or high temperatures.

Applications

  • Structural Steel
  • Partitions & External Walls
  • Ceilings & Floors
  • Ductwork
  • M&E Services Enclosures

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.
