Clarity for Cladding (Australian Property Council)

CladdingTest Builds a Positive Identification Database to Boost Fire Safety
Chemists and engineers at CladdingTest have built a database which provides insight into the flammability of various cladding materials.
Many cladding materials currently used are flammable to varying degrees, including very common Aluminium Composite Panels (ACPs). These have a polymer-based core material (such as polyethylene), with a sheet of aluminium glued to either side. While ACPs can sometimes be nearly non-combustible, they’re generally considered flammable.
Cladding Materials Database is updated as new cladding materials enter the market. The database will help fire engineers effectively assess the potential fire risk of buildings.
