Ashland Performance Materials introduces fire-resistant exterior architectural building panels.

Ashland Performance Materials’ (Dublin, Ohio) large booth at COMPOSITES 2013 featured full-sized, fire-resistant exterior architectural building panels that were recently selected to cover one façade of the new San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Fabricated by Kreysler & Assoc. Inc. (American Canyon, Calif.), the panels complemented the company’s next-generation Modar 820 FP acrylic-modified resin (pat. pend.), which was recently released for customer trials. The resin is now prepromoted and prefilled with aluminum trihydrate (ATH) to make it considerably more user-friendly for fabricators of low-smoke, low-flame composites, says the company.
