Material and its Properties
vitreous enamel panel • hard, chemically resistant, durable, scratch resistant • it has all kinds of colors, and has long-lasting colour fastness • it is smooth, easy to clean • fireproof"
This waterproof layer protects the building from high-volume downpours and, with the panels, creates a vented thermal cavity to combat the intense heat load. The vitreous enamel surface is highly durable: the red dust cleans off easily and it can survive the impact of objects hurling and spinning at cyclone velocity.
