PROMARINE®-450T

ADVANTAGES

  • Non-combustible according to IMO A799 (19)
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to install
  • Durable
  • Moisture resistant

Lightweight Fire Rated Decorative Panel

PROMARINE®-450T is a non-combustible autoclaved calcium silicate board reinforced with selected minerals and fibres and has a nominal dry density of 450kg/m3. It is formulated without inorganic fibres and does not contain formaldehyde.

The board is off-white in colour and has a smooth sanded surface on both faces. The board can easily be finished with high pressure laminates.
It is resistant to the effects of moisture and will not physically deteriorate when used in damp or humid conditions.

Applications

  • A, B & C Class constructions
  • Compartmentalisation
  • Linings
  • Non-combustible furnitures

WORKING CHARACTERISTICS

The combination of moisture resistance, mechanical strength and fire protection cannot be matched by boards using other binder systems. The board is rigid and robust. It is easy to handle and can be worked with normal woodworking tools. PROMARINE®-450T has been supplied to almost every major shipyard in the world and installed on most types of sea-going vessels and offshore platforms.

CHEMICAL PROPERTIES

PROMARINE®-450T panels are unaffected by brine or chloride and are chemically inert.

The panels are resistant to attack by insects or vermin and will not nourish growth of mould or bacteria. The panels will not disintegrate or swell if immersed in water. A temporary loss of strength will occur when panels are fully saturated, but normal strength is regained when panels dry out.

WORKING AND HANDLING

PROMARINE® boards can be cut and or drilled using standard joinery tools, although dust extraction equipment is recommended if using power tools. Boards do not require any specialised handling equipment and should be stored indoors on the pallet until required. Safety data sheets are available from the Promat Technical Services Department and, as with any other materials, should be read before working with the board. The board is not classified as a dangerous substance and no special provisions are required regarding the carriage and disposal of the product.

PROMARINE® boards have good screwholding qualities. However, we recommend that where possible, normal wall fixtures, such as bookcases, shelves, lights etc are attached to the panel steelwork. If fixing directly into the board, decorative laminate face should be drilled approximately 2mm larger than screw to prevent laminate cracking. It is also recommended that the screw threads be coated with PVA glue, prior to final fitting. Where aesthetically acceptable, wall and ceiling fittings should be bolted through – heavier items such a wash hand basins, handrails, ceiling fans etc can also be adequately fastened with the aid of inserts and dowels. The board laminate face should also be ‘overdrilled’ with this option. All above fixtures, fittings and fasteners can be supplied directly with all deliveries of PROMARINE® boards and profiles.

PROMARINE®-450T, plain or laminated boards should not be used or stored in conditions where the relative humidity falls below 35% or rises above 85% and where the maximum temperature exceeds 35°C. High pressure laminate (HPL) is suitable for bonding to all PROMARINE® panels using a number of adhesives. The type of adhesive to be used when bonding HPL to the panels is determined by the adhesive specified on the laminate manufacturer’s Type Approval Certificate, issued by the National Authority, Classification Society or Notified Body. The panels and HPL should be stored and conditioned prior to laminating. Special considerations must be taken into account in areas where the panels will be subject to continuous drying i.e. behind radiators, or in areas that are constantly wet. Advice should be sought from Promat Technical Services Department.

HEALTH & SAFETY

A safety data sheet is available from the Promat Technical Services Department and, as with any other materials, should be read before working with PROMARINE®-450T. 

It is not classified as a dangerous substance and so no special provisions are required regarding the carriage and disposal of the product to landfill. 

PROMARINE®-450T boards can be placed in an on-site skip with other general building waste which should be disposed of by a registered contractor.
