All models of Artstone panels have "A2 NON-FLAMMABILITY CERTIFICATE". This is the main required qualification for projects that are being constructed and renovated in today's conditions. The fact that companies in composite covering sector with A2 non-flammability certified products is very limited is another reason to prefer Artstone. According to EU regulations, our panels successfully passed the fire test Euroclass TS EN 13501-1 (reaction of construction products to fire and fire resistance performance).
Production of Artstone panels in a certain thickness brings maximum resistance along. When equivalent or copied substandard products are considered; thinner panels produced with no resistance to lower the product cost cause problems in the long term. It has been observed that producing panels in substandard thickness causes breakages, cracks and bending. In terms of being in accordance with "technical specifications", Artstone keeps its thickness standard between 7 and 12 mm. The panel's flexural strength has been calculated as 319 N/mm² and modulus of elasticity as 40000 N/mm² as a result of measurements. These values constitute the required standard values. According to TS EN 59 standards, Barcol hardness value is determined as 52. This value is 44 for glass reinforced products, which is above the anticipated hardness. It is important to know that values under the limit are considered as "non-suitability".
In the impact resistance test done according to TS EN ISO 179-1 standards, Artstone panel's impact resistance has been calculated as 30kj/m². Glass fiber composites' Charpy impact resistance value is higher than 25.45kj/m² according to DIN ISO179 standards. This is especially important for unfavorable weather conditions. Resistance of Artstone panels against any possible impact and shock is very high. In conclusion, our product has "shock absorber" feature.
If a product is a panel with natural stone look and structure, it does not mean that it has a natural look. 90% Artstone's production process occurs technologically, while 10% occurs with hand-workmanship. This brings the exact creation of the desired structure and look with it. "Natural look", which is obtained through color combinations with special inorganic pigments for the produced panels and special painting techniques performed afterwards, is another distinctive feature of Artstone panels.
NOT EVERY WALL PANEL IS "ARTSTONE".
Artstone has a wide interval range in terms of heat resistance. According to the tests performed under ASTM C 666 standards, it has been observed that there is no deterioration or deformation in frost resistance test and no loss of weight. In determination of resistance to water and moisture, expansion-tensile values' accordance with technical specifications and also ASTM E 1069 temperature resistance limit, it has been observed that the product is resistant up to 800oC.
Fastness guarantee of façades up to 20 years with our solution partnership with the world's leading brand "JOTUN", which proved itself in the sector, is another distinctive feature of Artstone panels.
