ALVECOMP

SPECIAL SHEETS IN COMPACT POLYCARBONATE

APPLICATIONSTRANSPARENCY, LIGHTNESS AND THERMAL INSULATION PROVIDE THE NECESSARY CHARACTERISTICS TO THE ALVECOMP PRODUCTS TO MEET BOTH THE TECHNICAL-APPLICATION SOLUTIONS REQUESTED AND THE REGULATIONS IN FORCE FOR THE DESIGN
AND RESTORATION OF CIVIL AND INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS:
- HIGH THERMAL INSULATION;
- LIGHT MANAGEMENT;
- EXCELLENT FIRE BEHAVIOR;
- EXCELLENT SELF-WEIGHT/MECHANICAL STRENGTH RATIO;
- EXCELLENT LOAD RESISTANCE PERFORMANCE;
- UNCHANGED PHYSICAL/MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OVER TIME;
THANKS TO THESE CHARACTERISTICS, THE ALVECOMP SHEETS ARE THE IDEAL SOLUTION FOR A VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS: DOORS,
WINDOWS AND SHUTTERS, SKYLIGHTS, ROOFS, COVERINGS, CURTAIN WALLS, FALSE CEILINGS AND PARTITION WALLS.

TRANSPARENCYTHE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF POLYCARBONATE PROVIDE TO THE ALVECOMP PRODUCT THE ABILITY TO CONVEY INSIDE
BUILDINGS A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF LIGHT, WHICH THANKS TO SPECIAL PIGMENTS CAN BE MANAGED ACCORDING TO DESIGN NEEDS.

LIGHTNESS
THE LOW SPECIFIC WEIGHT OF POLYCARBONATE MAKES THE ALVECOMP PRODUCT VERY LIGHT, MINIMIZING LABOR COSTS FOR INSTALLATION OF THE PRODUCT AND ENHANCING LOAD RESISTANCE PERFORMANCE.

 

THERMAL INSULATION
MULTIPLE-WALL DRAWINGS AND THICKNESSES THAT POPULATE THE WIDE RANGE OF THE ALVECOMP PRODUCT COMBINED WITH THE CHEMICALPHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF POLYCARBONATE MINIMIZE THERMAL EXCHANGE, ENHANCING PRODUCT PERFORMANCE AND METING THE REGULATIONS IN FORCE IN TERMS OF ENERGY SAVINGS.

IMPACT RESISTANCE
THE MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF POLYCARBONATE PROVIDE TO THE ALVECOMP PRODUCT HIGH IMPACT RESISTANCE, WHICH IS OPTIMIZED AGAINST DAMAGES CAUSED BY WEATHER AGENTS AND ACCIDENTAL IMPACTS, MEETING THE REGULATIONS IN FORCE IN TERMS OF SAFETY.

FIRE BEHAVIOR
ALVECOMP IS CLASSIFIED EURO CLASS B-S1,D0.

GUARANTEE OVER TIMETHE MODERN PLANTS USED BY ALVECO, EQUIPPED WITH THE MOST RECENT AND ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR THE MANUFACTURING OF ALVEOLAR SHEETS ALLOW PRODUCING THE ALVECOMP PRODUCT WITH UV PROTECTION ON BOTH SIDES BY APPLYING THE
UV ABSORBER, WHICH PROTECTS THE SHEET FROM AGING CAUSED BY UV RAYS.
THE UV PROTECTION HINDERS THE DEGRADATION OF THE SHEET, PRESERVING THE ALVECOMP PRODUCT FROM LOSS OF MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS, BRIGHTNESS AND TRANSPARENCY.
THE ALVECOMP PRODUCT IS GUARANTEED FOR A 10-YEAR PERIOD.

BENDING RADIUS

THE ALVECOMP SHEETS OFFER A WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS FOR USE, AMONG WHICH COLD BENDING OF THE SHEET TO MAKE IT SUITABLE TO THE USE AS AN ELEMENT TO CREATE CURVED SKYLIGHTS, SMALL DOMES AND TUNNELS.
THE MINIMUM SAFETY VALUE IS:
50 TIMES THE THICKNESS OF THE SHEET

CUTTING

ALVECOMP COMPACT POLYCARBONATE SHEETS CAN BE CUT WITH STANDARD CUTTING TOOLS SUCH AS VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL SHEARING MACHINES, CIRCULAR SAWS, BAND SAWS OR JIG SAWS. IN ANY CASE, IT I NECESSARY TO PAY EXTREME ATTENTION TO LOCK THE BLADE IN SUCH A WAY TO MINIMIZE VIBRATIONS AND LOCAL TWISTING.

BENDING

ALVECOMP SHEETS CAN BE COLD-BENT USING SPECIAL EQUIPMENT.

IN THE BENDING POINT THE UV PROTECTION IS COMPROMISED. THIS PROCESSING IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR SHEETS THAT MUST BE
INSTALLED UNDER DIRECT EXPOSURE TO UV RAYS.
THERMOFORMING
ALVECOMP SHEETS CAN BE HOT THERMOFORMED. TO DO SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO FOLLOW A FEW RECOMMENDATIONS:
• PRIOR DRYING OF THE SHEETS AT A TEMPERATURE OF APPROX. 120°C;
• REMOVAL OF PROTECTION FILM PRIOR TO THERMOFORMING;
• THERMOFORMING TEMPERATURE RANGING BETWEEN 175° AND 200°C;
THE THERMOFORMING OPERATION CAUSES STRETCHING BOTH IN TERMS OF THICKNESS AND COEXTRUSION LAYER THUS IT IS
IMPORTANT TO ASSESS WITH CARE THE LIMITATIONS OF USE FOR EACH PROJECT. THE SHEET SUBJECTED TO THIS PROCESSING IS NO
LONGER UNDER STANDARD WARRANTY.
