THE AESTHETIC ALLROUND PERFORMER
GLASBORD® is GRP, but not all GRP is Glasbord®.
With Glasbord®, an innovative glass-fiber-reinforced plastic with a non-porous surface, Hydewa supplies customized hygiene solutions throughout Europe. Glasbord® is a material of Crane Composites Inc. (formerly Kemlite), headquartered in Channahon/Illinois (USA).
Glasbord® means premium quality based on unbeatable properties that make it a premium product as such.The special Surfaseal film sealing ensures particularly easy and good cleanability. The surface does not provide a breeding ground for germs and microorganisms and does not yellow even when exposed to ammonia. Food safety, durability and robustness are further properties of Glasbord®.
Hydewa offers Glasbord® both as sheet material for direct bonding and as a top layer for sandwich panels. Glasbord® is available flat or textured and in various thicknesses and can be offered with diverse properties depending on requirements and application.
Advantages of textured material over flat material:
- Unevenness & scratches are not so obvious
- repairs are hardly visible
- slower run-off of cleaning foam -> longer exposure time
- reduces eye fatigue due to diffuse light reflection
- valuable impression
Hydewa offers Glasbord® as a sheet product. This can be supplied as cut-to-size panels standard dimensions: width 1.20m and length 2.10 to 3.50m.
Glasbord® is available flat or textured and in various thicknesses (common are 1.9mm, 2.3 mm or 3 mm) and can be offered with various properties depending on the requirements and application, e.g. in fire protection class up to B-s1-d0(FX grade 1.9mm) as well as extreme impact strength.
Glasbord® can be applied directly to the existing wall surfaces using an applicator system or by hand. A specially adapted, elastic adhesive is used for this purpose. The full-surface application promises a safe, fast and hygienically perfect result without cavities.
Glasbord® impresses above all with its versatility. Therefore, the GRP surfaces can also be used for sandwich systems as insulation or as partition wall panels for the interior.
Depending on the application, the panels are constructed with different core materials. Classically, expanded polystyrene (EPS), but also polyisocyanurates (PIR) or honeycomb panels (PP) are used for this purpose.
