Symonite is the only Australian manufactured aluminium composite panel. An Australian owned company whose continuous composite panel research and development see them as specialists in the manufacture of fire resistant materials for the building and transport industries.
Symonite is manufactured from a core of fully cured ‘A’ resol fibre reinforced Phenolicresin which is chemically bonded under heat and pressure to a wide range of metallic faces including mill finished, anodised or PVDF painted aluminium.
The advantages of Symonite over other composite panels stem from its unique thermosetting core construction.
Extreme Impact Resistance makes Symonite more than cost competitive in comparisonto solid metal sheet or Polyethylene cored panels in public areas, which are subject to high mechanical damage or facades prone to damage from impact i.e. hail.
Fire Resistance makes Symonite a suitable building element where compartmentalisation of fire is an important aspect in fire safety engineering and design.
High Thermal Temperature Stability prevents creep and telegraphic deformation of the external face of the panel on high ambient or high surface temperature conditions because the core does not soften.
UV Stability means that the panel edges can be fully exposed to the elements thus introducing design and fabrication options for Architects and Designers which can reduce total installed costs.
Silicone Edge Bonding means panels can be structurally glazed thus increasing designoptions and also reducing fabrication and installation costs.
Homogenous Thermal Expansion means no differential thermal expansion between the panel’s aluminium skin and it’s core, thus ensuring panel flatness over a wide temperature range.
