Composite plate is an environmental light building material, made from a mix of a Calicut silicate board panel, adhesive, cement, fly ash, EPS , and polystyrene foam particles and has the following features:
- Excellent thermal qualities and energy saving by reducing the need for cooling systems.
- All raw materials meet the requirements of the National Environmental Protection regulations
- No pollution during production and no waste during installation
- Lightweight but earthquake resistant up to 8.5.
- Compared to traditional clay brick it is four times lighter and solves the problem of girders, big columns, and deep foundations.
- Suitable for low rise, high rise, and soft geological buildings.
- Fireproof. A study conducted by the National Construction Material Quality Supervision Inspection Centre confirmed a fireproof time of four hours and a non-inflammability grade A of the national standard.
- Soundproof, being made up of sound absorbing materials
- Waterproof and moisture proof. Tests prove that pools made from composite plate can keep its body dry for over a year without a waterproof decorative surface, without leaving a watermark or allowing condensation beads to appear in wet weather
- Composite sheet thickness is thinner and lighter than traditional brick reducing project time and building costs, whilst increasing floor area by 8–10%, saving building space
- Installation is 3–5 times quicker than traditional bricklaying because of dry construction with a product that can easily be sewn, cut and drilled.
