Webglas - GC
Application

Used within single-skin or insulated roofing and cladding applications within agricultural chemical plants, corrosive chemical processing, petrochemical environments, wastewater treatment, power stations, brick and tile manufacturing, and many more. Can also be used for structural daylighting or as walkable panels.

Description

UV protected glass reinforced polyester (GRP) sheeting with a gel coated surface and woven web mat reinforcement.

Features and benefits:

  • Offers high strength and reinforcement - no safety mesh required.
  • Suitable for use within highly corrosive environments.
  • No delamination is possible.
  • Retains light transmission, strength, and flexibility throughout the lifetime of the sheet.
  • Will not lose its tensile strength or become brittle (as happens with film surface coated and polycarbonate materials).
  • Corrosion resistant and will not rust.
  • Impervious to water, vapours and gases.
  • The highly UV resistant resins provide a high level of protection (99.9%).
  • Low levels of surface erosion.
  • The gel coated sheet surface becomes an almost impenetrable barrier.
  • If cleaned regularly, the sheeting retains its original bright appearance long-term.
  • Compliant with the requirements of Class 2 to Class 9 buildings of the Building Code of Australia.
  • Maintenance free.
  • Available with a wide range of profile types and colours (translucent or opaque).
  • Available with Ampelite’s FS Firecheck fire resistant system - consult manufacturer for details.

Compliance:

Complies with the following standards:

  • BS 476-6: 1989 + A1: 2009.
  • ASTM E108: 2001: Standard test methods for fire tests of roof coverings.
  • AS/NZS 1170.2: 2011: Structural design actions.
  • AS/NZS 3837: 1998: Methods of test for heat and smoke release rates for materials and products using oxygen consumption calorimeter.
  • AS 4256:3: 2006: Plastic roof and wall cladding materials.
  • AS 1562.3: 2006 Design and installation of sheet roof and wall cladding: Plastic.
  • AS/NZS 4040.1: 2016.

Consult manufacturer for details on relevant test results.

Ampelite recommends grade 1.4401 (316) stainless steel fasteners and Ampelite proprietary grade 1.4401 (316) stainless steel 36 mm diameter fixing caps with ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) washers.
