ALUMINIUM DURA CLAD: CLADDING SHEETS

Dura-Clad® panel is made from Aluminium Alloy AA3003 H24 temper, which is widely used, in marine and industrial applications. Building materials for exterior and interior use, curtain walling and wall paneling. Its is superior in flatness and non-combustible DIN Standard.

Dura-Clad® is manufactured from state of art coil-coating system using PVF2/PVDF (Kynar 500/ Hylar 5000 resin) paint. It comes in 2 coats for solid colour or 3 coats for metallic finish. Dura-Clad® is highly consistent in colour stability , gloss retention, resistance to UV-A, UV-B & UV-C radiation and remains very beautiful for a very long time.

COIL COATING PROCESS

Coating on a high speed technologically advanced paint-line. Surface pre-treatment by Chromating, cover layers, primer and stoving of paint at temperatures between 249°C to 254°C. Wet film thickness 59-67 microns ensures excellent durability and excellent Surface finishes for exterior applications.
