METOPRO A2 Fire Rated Brick Adhesive Launched

 Voltar para todas as noticias

METOPRO A2 is a water based grout containing epoxy resin, designed as general purpose setting adhesive for ‘face-up’ applications. It is designed primarily for use in the decorative brick industry for use on lintels in conjunction with mechanical fixings.

In response to the tragic events surrounding the Grenfell Tower Fire, the Government sought to introduce
new and more stringent legislation in relation to materials used in building structures, and particularly for
use as cladding.


The Government announced that, above 18 metre height, materials used were to be individually tested to
comply with EN 13501-1:2018. Within the realm of epoxy adhesives used in brick cladding with high organic
content e.g. Metofix 3:1 & other similar products, they were capable of gaining EN 13501-1:2018 A2 but
only when applied in very low quantities known as – “dot and dab”


This application method leaves the brick exposed and liable to failure over a period of time.


Adhesives used as a continuous layer give improved bond strengths and increased protection to brick
slips.


Under EN 13501-1:2018 :- products used at 1mm thickness or above in a continuous layer are required to
have low calorific contents (i.e. low levels of organic content). Metofix 3:1 and other traditional high epoxy
level products do not meet this challenge hence a new technology was required.
The result is METOPRO A2, a water based epoxy adhesive, designed for when high application rates are
required – for strength & protection in > 18m situations.


METOPRO A2 – gives the belt and braces protection of a continuous adhesive layer, with good adhesion
characteristics to steel lintels and other materials, when used in conjunction with mechanical anchors
provides the maximum longevity & security in > 18m situations.


METOPRO A2 has EN 13501-1:2018 compliance with fantastic results (A2 s0d1 rated), even when used at a
coverage of 4mm.


Products with calorific values of > 3MJ/kg which have an A2 certificate based on a DOT AND DAB method
should therefore not be used in a continuous layer above 1mm thickness IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ABOVE 18m HEIGHT.
