Architects in many different working fields have experienced the possibilities when designing with A1:
- Freedom of form. Because A1 is laminated or sprayed it is not limited in its final form. Straight, curved or even multi-dimensional curved forms are possible.
- Choose your own look and feel. A1 can be pigmented, mixed with fillers, like coloured sand, or simply painted which gives you lots of opportunities to create your own look and feel.
- Lightweight because of the possible use of triaxial fibre as reinforcement. Four layers of our triaxial fibre create lightweight and strong elements which will have a thickness of less than 1 cm. Also helpful during transportation or storage.
- Fire resistant because A1 LP01 in relation to its reaction to fire behaviour is classified: B. The additional classification in relation to smoke production is: s1. The additional classification in relation to flaming droplets/particles is: d0
Other advantages are:
- Water-based so safe to work with. No special requirements are needed while working with A1. Your own workshop area will do because A1 is water based. You will be surprised how easy it is to work with A1.
- Reproduction of your scenery is very easy with the use of silicone moulds. Create whatever number of reproductions you need. A1 will not damage your silicone mould and no extra precautions are needed to demould your work.
- Simple and fast on-off objects with a combination of EPS and A1. Create an EPS object and cover it with a layer of A1.
- Different kinds of backup materials are possible which can be covered with A1. Wood, EPS and PU foam are the most often used, but others are possible as well. These backup materials create thicker panels which are also lightweight and not expensive to produce.
