EUROPA is an ideal product for building revamps and face-lifts as there is very little structural change required to the building as a result of the available advanced fixing systems
This homogeneous, high density of EUROPAexterior laminate provides a panel with the following outstanding properties
CompositionEUROPA exterior panels consist of layers of cellulose fibers that are impregnated with thermosetting resins and bonded under high pressures. The surface layers consist of solid color and decorative sheets that are impregnated with amino resins and a weatherproof and lightfast protective outer coating. The core layers consist of sheets impregnated with phenolic resins. The layers are combined together under heat (approximately 300 degrees F) and high pressures. The high density material obtained is homogeneous, stable, non-porous, and chemically inert with excellent mechanical properties. These properties make it particularly suitable for use in a wide range of exterior applications.
EUROPA exterior panels are preferred by architects due to their pastel colour scale, natural wood designs and metallic looking finishes.
