Composite is a multilayered panel made up of two sheets of zinc that are 0.5 mm thick and thermo-glued on either side of a mineral-rich polyethylene core for optimum reaction to fire.
Combining the qualities, elegance and durability of VMZINC with the rigidity and smoothness of composite, Composite offers unique architectural possibilities for facades.

Composite is available in three VMZINC aspects (QUARTZ-ZINC, ANTHRA-ZINC et AZENGAR).
There are a number of Composite applications for interiors and exteriors. It can be used for facades, curtain walls, balconies and all types of new or renovated buildings.

Installation on a flat, vertical structure in plastered brickwork or concrete on new buildings and renovations. Airtightness is provided by the structural wall.
Composite panels are installed on a wall-mounted framework as part of a ventilated facade offering a healthy, durable solution for buildings. They can be installed in cassettes or riveted/screwed-down sheets.
Composite sheets must be stored on their original pallet, on a dry floor, in an area with overhead shelter that is correctly ventilated. On delivery the sheets are covered with a protective film on their outer side that enables the surface aspect to be protected during installation. The film must be removed entirely at latest 90 days after installation.
Ventilation of the rear side of the sheets must be ensured by an air space of 2 cm minimum situated between the insulation and the Composite sheet, or between the brickwork and the sheets. Entry of the air space is ensured by a perforated panel at the foot of the cladding and by a divider in the expansion joint.
Composite panels are installed on a wall-mounted framework as part of a ventilated facade offering a healthy, durable solution for buildings. They can be installed:
In smooth sheets that are mounted on a supporting framework of aluminium panels.
In Vertical cassettes.
In Horizontal cassettes using composite panels that are fixed onto a supporting framework of aluminium panels.
Three installation systems are recommended Installed in riveted or screwed-down sheets Installed in vertical cassettes Installed in horizontal cassettes
