Reaction to fire is the degree in which a material resists combustion, with regard to this, materials are assigned a class (0 through 5), the higher the class, the higher the degree of combustion.
Since the panel consists of two steel facings with a layer of rockwool insulation sandwiched between, then the class 0 refers to the external surfaces, with class 1 referring to the insulation core.
Thermal performance and strength
At 250C mean temperature thermal conductivity varies between 0.031W/mk and 0.036W.mk depending upon the density of the material.
Acoustic PerformancePanel length available
Alfa panels offer excellent sound absorption. The Noise reduction Coefficient (NRC) range from 0.80 to 0.95.
Alfa panels do not contribute in any way to the spreading of fire. It does not shrink, stretch or deform when exposed to fire. It does not cause smoke or any burning droplets in case of fire. It significantly contributes to improved fire safety.
Resistance to moisture
Water absorption by partial immersion: 0.5kg/m2. Water absorption by full immersion: 10% to 11.5% of weight (tests done as per BS2972)
To store for long duration, Alfa panels should be stored indoor. If stored outside, the panels should be stacked clear of ground and covered with a securely anchored weather proof sheet. The panels should not be left exposed to weather.
Alfa panels are not hazardous to health and do not contain asbestos.
Alfa panels are free from CFCs, HFCs and HCFs and contain phenol resins within the permissible limits.
