New bonding technique contributes to non-combustible A2 panels

In 2002, a new European fire classification system was introduced.

A dramatic fire in the Netherlands. This almost 9m high fire partition made of PAROC panels prevented the fire from spreading to the other end of the building.In the new system the amount and composition of the adhesive layer affected the reaction to fire classification. We developed a glue to keep our panels with stone wool insulation as non-combustible (A2-s1, d0) products.

As we were actively following fire safety standardisation in Europe, we became the first manufacturer in Europe to introduce a non-combustible A2-class panel.
