More about this product

One of the most important factors in modern building is safety. With international standards becoming increasingly demanding with regard to the safety of citizens, companies are required to develop products complying with recent safety specifications.
etalbond® FR by Elval Colour, due to its mineral core, meets the stricter requirements of the fire classifications. It is hardly inflammable, while maintaining all the important characteristics of normal etalbond®, such as resistance to weather, flatness and simple forming techniques.


etalbond® FR is fully recyclable. Both the mineral core and the aluminium sheets are recycled in the special facilities of our factory and can be used in the production of new material.

Composition of etalbond® FR


  • Protective plastic film
  • High Quality Coating System
  • Aluminium Alloy EN 3105, H44
  • Adhesion Promoter
  • Adhesive layer
  • LD Polyethylene / Fire Retardant / Incombustible*
  • Adhesive layer
  • Aluminium Alloy EN 3105, H44
  • High Quality Coating System or Primer Coating


The main advantages of etalbond® FR, whose unique features replace the various traditional construction materials, are:

  • Outstanding strength-to- weight ratio.
  • Increased rigidity.
  • Simple forming techniques.
  • Rapid installation.
  • Results in the reduced completion time of a project.
  • Resistant to extreme weather conditions (exposure and temperature).
  • Extensive testing during production guarantees the materials resistance capability to severe weather conditions.
  • Excellent UV characteristics, retaining colour after extended exposure.
  • Easy maintenance - pollution, acid, alkali and salt resistant.
  • The panels can easily be cleaned with a soft detergent due to their smooth surfaces.
  • Resulting appearance.
  • Curved and flat surfaces in striking colours create a new elegant look in buildings and constructions of all kinds. Attractive and flexible, etalbond® is the ideal cladding
    material for interior and exterior surfaces either of new constructions or of renovations.

Colours and Surfaces

Solid Colours
From vibrant colours to conservative shades, solid colours create a unified appearance without the need of special effects. The whole range of RAL and Pantone at your disposal. Gloss: from 5% to 80+%

Premium Metallic and Dual/Prismatic

The elements of nature and their textures, inspired the Ceramic/TX line which creates a special structured effect. A specially developed coating enables aluminium to be used as a substitute for ceramic or stone material.
The Ceramic/TX line offers the lower construction weight of the coil coated aluminium and tailor made natural looking finishes. Gloss: <10%.

Special Imitations

Corten (Oxidised Steel), Paginated Copper, Marble, Granite and Wood Imitations. Our technology and know-how allows us to match the aesthetic appeal of natural materials with the texture which is identical to the real thing.
