6500m2 of Optima TFC in 2.0mm Reynolux Pre-Coat & 2.0mm Aluminium Axalta PPC has been used in the completion of the £36 million student accommodation on Norton Street, Liverpool. The Reynolux Pre-Coat was chosen due to its Euroclass A1 Fire Rating. The material was recommended by Sotech to ensure panel flatness and consistency throughout.
Pre-coat is a tensioned levelled material which is perfect for maintaining a flat facade. With a striking eye-catching façade, the project has created a new landmark building on the Liverpool skyline. The Optima TFC has been independently tested and accredited to CWCT standards.
Reynolux pre-painted or coil coated aluminium is an aluminium sheet or coil manufactured through coil-coating. In addition to its UV and weather resistance, it is also easy to transform and allows creations of original shapes.
Novelis FF2 & FF3 pre-painted aluminium with a 2mm and 3mm thickness is developed specially for building facade cladding in ventilated and non-ventilated construction. To ensure colour consistency and surface durability, the aluminium is coated in a continuous coil-coating process. Solid and metallic paints are applied in two or four coats, then permanently stove enamelled.
Euramax supplies premium coil coated metals for aluminium cladding. With aluminium cladding coated by Euramax there is a wide variety of colour and design finishes available to every architectural design in multiple paint qualities. All finishes are customisable to customer wishes and needs.
Sotech’s commitment to authentic engineering capability has been witnessed over several years in the testing of products as they are being developed.
