Panel 20® Metal Composite Material(MCM)
Panel 20® is a composite panel for exterior use made by laminating an aluminum skin to a substrate of thermoset phenolic resin. A second aluminum skin is added as a backer and provides thermal stability and panel balance. This system is designed for use as exterior cladding on walls, canopies, fascias, and accent bands. However, Panel 20® is also ideal for other applications where a high end look is desired.
Similar to Envelope 2000®, Panel 20® is impact resistant, water resistant, and provides ultimate smoothness in a wide variety of finishes. However, Panel 20® is installed using a variety of moldings, saving on the fabrication and installation costs.
Attached to the substrate with concealed screws, Panel 20® offers two piece aluminum moldings to complete the panel joints. These moldings (available in batten and reveal profiles) consist of plastic receiver attached prior to the panel, then finished with a prepainted cover to match or complement the panel.
In addition to perimeter fastening, Panel 20® should be adhered to the substrate in the field of the panel.
Installation is non-progressive when using these moldings allowing panels to be removed and replaced should damage occur.
