Oman’s first aluminium composite panel manufacturing plant was recently inaugurated at Misfah Industrial Area on the outskirts of Muscat, a media report said.
The manufacturing unit is the latest diversification of the Mohammed Riaz & Partners group, a leading building materials company, added the Oman Observer report.
At the opening event, Alu-Panel’s product specialist Tenzin Tsarong gave an overview of ACP within the market place and its advent some 40 years ago, known then as sandwich panels, because it is made up of two aluminium sheets on either side that are bonded together in a non-aluminium core, the report said.
He highlighted how the launch of the ACP factory in Oman is a testament to the growth and usage of smarter materials in the marketplace that are aesthetically simple yet elegant, solid yet light in weight and have longer longevity.
He gave examples of famous structures using ACP materials such as Spaceship Earth (Florida), VanDusen Botanical Garden (Canada), Loreal building (Paris) and so forth.
Tenzin then introduced the fire team to give a demonstration of firing one of their sheets with a flame gun to showcase the fire resistant capability of the sheets.
