ACP Façade Cleaning Tips

ACP Façade Cleaning Tips 825 510 admin

The face of modern architecture and design across urban landscapes, Aluminium Composite Panels clad facades are a common sight. They have plenty of benefits and come in a variety of colours, variety of texture which makes it an architect’s delight. Viva ACP sheets come in 300+ colours, customisable for colours, wind pressure and fire-resistant, making them the best choice for external facades and signages. Here’s everything you need to know about ACP faces cleaning and maintenance:

  1. TLC is key. Be Gentle.
    At Viva we use International standard paints and aluminium coil, which do not succumb to scratches and indentation easily. There is no need to use hard cleaning solutions, solvents etc. Regular cleaning using a sponge/cloth and detergent water is more than sufficient. The aim is to only remove dirt and grit from the surface.
  2. Mind the time.
    Take note that as Aluminium is a metal, it is subject to small contraction and expansion based on heat level at certain times of the day. Ensure that you choose a time where it is neither too hot nor too cold so that you can cover the maximum surface without compromise.
  3. Dealing with soil
    If the building is in an area that is prone to soil, dirt and grit, which is often the case in industrial zones and city centres, one needs to be mindful about creating scratches. For this reason, a pre-cleaning set up where forceful water rinse is done from top to bottom. Use water and first rinse the panel with moderate pressure. If the soil is sticky and adhering, then you need to go for a mild detergent solution. If the surfaces are blackened due to pollution, then you will need to use detergent.
  4. Dealing with pollution
    For dealing with pollution and to restore shine, one needs to use cleaner or detergent. Using a top-down approach, apply cleaner on the surface. However, dripping of cleaner on to the bottom panels needs to be minimised. Remove drips and splashes immediately!
  5. Choosing right cleaner/detergent
    Maintaining a pH level of 8 in the water is important. Large deviations from this can result in heavy damage to the panel. Before starting the cleaning procedure, make sure you apply the detergent water to a small patch and leave for one minute to check if there could be any damage. Once the safety of the detergent is confirmed, proceed with the cleaning process. Maximum 5% cleaning solution should be used.
  6. Choosing cleaning material
    It is very important to note that your cleaning rags and or sponges are themselves free of grit and dirt. Cleaning with abrasive materials can cause more scratches.
  7. Cleaning process
    Horizontal motions first and then vertical motions is the preferred method. Make sure your sponge is thoroughly cleaned and dried. Use a lint-free cloth to remove the excess water after cleaning.
  8. The Dos and Don’ts
    Do not use MFK based cleaning agents, caustic soda, potassium hydroxide and acid as you should be aware that ACP sheets are lacquered. If construction is still going on in the building, cover the previously installed ACP panels with something as it is difficult to remove sealants and machine oils from ACP panels.

With these simple tricks, you can give a long, bright and shiny life to the sturdy and lightweight Viva ACP Panels, thereby improving the shelf life and appeal.

Flame Retardant ACP’s – Fire at Mahavir Plaza

Flame Retardant ACP’s – Fire at Mahavir Plaza 825 510 admin

Another incident of fire broke out on the high-rise in Airoli at Mahavir Plaza. To put out the fire, it was required to call for five water jets from Airoli, Rabale MIDC, and Nerul. Though no casualties have been reported it calls to attention the requirement of Fire Retardant or Flame Retardant (FR A1 | B1 | B2). FR Cladding has been added as renewed regulations for construction

What is Cladding Material

Cladding is a material which is applied around and outside a building to improve appearance and energy efficiency.
Colorful red and green panels designed to soften and improve the insulation of buildings and structures

Why invest in Flame Retardant ACP materials?

If you follow our Social Media regularly, we updated on the Mayor of Mumbai, Mr. Vishwanath Mahadeshwar, visit Viva’s Booth at International Trade Fair On Façades & Products when he discussed on our Flame Retardant Product & New Stone Series and discussed the importance of Flame Retardant ACPs in safety of people in Corporates and Housing.

The Government has been bringing out new regulations to include Flame Retardant Product for new constructions to avoid cases like Mahavir Plaza and various other incidents

How does Flame Retardant ACP’s help?

In case of a fire, you want to know that the walls of your house will protect you while your family seeks safety. Fire burns wood, and melts vinyl, or uPVC, almost instantly. Viva ACP material coated with Flame Retardant cladding will not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire.

Viva’s FR A1+, A2 And B1 cladding, weatherboards and building facades are non-combustible, compared to wood cladding and uPVC cladding. With a high density and dimensional stability, the ACP is naturally resistant to adverse events such as fire, extreme weather conditions and is fireproof and waterproof.

Our cladding is used all over the world, including fire-prone areas where our products are specified to help resist fire attack from burning embers, radiant heat or flame contact.

As we have our own Colour Coating line, we can manufacture this material in any color and quantity, so one doesn’t have to compromise on looks when prioritizing safety.

In the infamous case of Grenfell Tower in Kensington, West London, Cladding was included as part of a £9million refurb completed in May 2017.

The material used in the cladding on Grenfell was the cheaper, more flammable version of the two available options.

Fireproof cladding initially planned for Grenfell was reportedly downgraded so the council could save money.
Such a decision eventually cost the lives of many innocent.

Without proper precautions, fire can claim lives, destroy property, and leave chaos and devastation in its wake.

Whether you’re a Business Owner, Builder or Architects, you’re required to keep the threat of fire minimal by Government Regulations and Duty of Care.

Our experience with Flame Retardant ACPs means we can reduce the threat of fire costing you money – or worse – and protect you from potential damage and litigation.
