The public sector, in particular, often requires stricter fire prevention measures. Both the mineral core used in DIBOND® FR and its aluminium cover layers make key contributions to the fire classification class B-s1, d0 according to European standards EN 13501. DIBOND® FR achieves this classification without the addition of halogenated fire retardants. DIBOND® FR can be used in a variety of applications where stringent fire prevention regulations are in place: airports, exhibition halls, shopping malls, in public buildings, in shopfitting and for interior cladding as well as displays and signage. DIBOND® FR can be processed in exactly the same way as standard DIBOND® sheets (with the exception of hot air welding) and it is also suitable for three-dimensional applications.

The standard version of DIBOND® FR is available with a platinum white matt surface on both sides. On request, both the full-range of standard and special colours and our "specialties" are available with a mineral core.

DIBOND®FR is also available in 2050 mm width. The "flame retardant" version can be delivered in widths up to 2050 mm in the familiar DIBOND® standard colours and in matt/matt and matt/gloss surface combinations. For special colours, please get in touch.

Recycled content

We have already completely replaced virgin materials in the core of our DIBOND® panels with recycled LDPE, and this means we are able to make an important contribution to closed-loop recycling. By using recycled core material, approximately 6,700 metric tons of LDPE virgin material can be saved every year. We work with selected European suppliers to source recycled LDPE of a consistently high quality. Continuous quality assurance is an essential part of this process for us. What is more, all DIBOND® panels comply with the requirements in the current version of the REACH & RoHS directives. Not only is DIBOND® core material recycled, the aluminium used in our aluminium cover sheets is also in part recycled. Aluminium is one of the materials best suited to recycling because regardless of how often it is recycled, there are no detrimental effects on its material properties. We intend to increase the proportion of recycled aluminium in our cover sheets in the future.

Fossil CO2 bound in the material

As the production of aluminium and the core material polyethylene are energy-intensive, there is embedded fossil carbon in DIBOND®. Using recycled LDPE, has already significantly reduced the CO2 footprint. Changing electricity generating methods for aluminium production is another means of reducing the amount of fossil carbon.

Product life cycle

Our high-quality, durable DIBOND® panels are used for long-term indoor and outdoor applications. In terms of weather resistance, the full range of selection criteria advocate the use of DIBOND®. The panels are temperature resistant from -50°C to +80°C, waterproof and UV-resistant. The composite structure of a DIBOND® panel comprises aluminium cover sheets which are particularly corrosion resistant. Depending on where the panel is installed, customers report a service life of up to 20 years.

DIBOND® is completely recyclable, i.e. both the core material and the aluminium cover sheets are recycled and used to produce new material. There are different methods to separate the material components from the composite. We are the first manufacturer of aluminium composite panels in Europe to have established a recycling system for the return of our aluminium composite materials in Germany in April 2023. Collecting and recycling the material is carried out in cooperation with our strong partners in the A|U|F e.V.. This association of German metal construction companies, system houses and other companies, organizes a closed-loop recycling system to deal with the aluminium used in the window, door and façade sectors. Initially, the option of returning our aluminium composite panels will start in Germany and will soon be extended to include other European countries.
