More about this product

The need for innovative and sustainable materials is greater than ever before, in order to realize the creative visions of architects and designers. Contemporary buildings not only have to comply with the highest design standards, but also have to meet the latest technical requirements in the fields of sustainability, energy efficiency, noise protection, fire protection, etc.
Thanks to its mineral-filled core, etalbond® A2 by Elval Colour is non-flammable and meets the strictest demands of fire regulations. etalbond® A2 works ideally everywhere fire protection is necessary: High-rise buildings, buildings with high visitation/occupancy, such as airports, metro stations, shopping malls, hotels, and buildings of high sensitivity, such us schools, kindergartens, hospitals, and elderly care centers to name a few.
etalbond® A2 is a construction material, which allows the freedom of design in combination with superior technological features. Attractive and flexible it is easily installed and formed and is available in a wide array of highly durable and custom-made coatings, providing architects and designers with numerous possibilities for materializing their ideas.



Fire behaviour etalbond® A2 composite panels are non-flammable and do not actively contribute to combustion. During the life cycle of etalbond® A2, there are no emissions of environmentally hazardous substances and there is no production of toxic fumes in the case of fire.

etalbond® A2 is classified as A2 for incombustibility, s1 lowest possible smoke emission and d0 for no droplets when the panel is exposed to fire according to the most stringent European Norm EN 13501-1.
