Vitrapanel is a Lumiflon Fluropolymer (VitraFlon 700) based pre-finished compressed fibre cement panel. VitraFlon 700 represents a break-through in the Fluropolymer technology, largely through the genius of international resin research with a wide range of durable and stable colour pigments, this creates extra long life cladding with unlimited colour spectrum. Vitrapanel is based on applying a factory spray to the raw compressed fibre cement board, which is coated on the face and all edges with for a complete finish. Vitrapanel comes as a standard in a semi gloss or satin finish, and can be ordered in any gloss or matte level.
Vitrapanel has extremely good Fire Resistance properties and is classified as NON COMBUSTBLE according to the Building Code of Australia. With the Lumiflon Fluropolymer (V700) based finished, Vitrapanel features a number of unique characteristics.
Graffiti Resistant – The Lumiflon coat allows for a quick and economical removal without affecting the glazed surface. No additional anti-graffiti protection is required.
Weather/ U.V Resistant – Unique thermosetting factory finish withstands long term exposure to dramatic changes in weather, including extreme temperatures such as those experienced in tropical equatorial regions and subarctic environment.
Bacteria & Mould Resistant – Tough glazed coating on panel front and edges prevents the adhesions or growth of bacteria and mould. Easy to keep clean, ideal for hospital, clinics, laboratories, food preparation areas and abattoirs demanding the strictest hygiene level.
Impact Resistant – Ceramic-like surface withstands being bumped or accidentally knocked by objects.
Colour Fade Resistant – The high-tech coating prevents fading in colour, allowing the panel to keep it’s appearance for decades.
Low Maintenance - Vitraflon 700 has a low surface energy consequently dirt does not readily adhere to its surface, it has an excellent ‘self-cleaning’ characteristic.
Unlimited Colours - Vitrapanel is a wall panel that has the ability to be produced in a great colour range, over 2,000 colours.
Vitrapanel is available in a range of standard size panels based, however we highly recommend the panels to be cut to size per project specification for a high quality edge finish.
Vitrapanel standard size:
|1800, 2400, 3000mm
1800, 2100, 2400, 2700, 3000
Vitrapanel has 25 solid colours and 25 metallic colours in their standard colour range. The panels are not restricted to the standard colour charts as we have the ability to produce over 2000 colours. We can colour match any solid colour provided we have a reference to the colour.
For other finishes such as flip pearls, rainbow metallics please contact us.
Digital Print Images:
Vitrapanel can also have digital graphics printed onto the surface for a more flexible design. There is no limit to the size of project from a few panels to thousands of square metres. Using your unique design we digitally print on a proprietary prepared Vitrapanel using the most up to date technology. A high quality graphical image is required with specified CYMK colours. The image is then printed onto the Vitrapanel. This is a very efficient and versatile method giving the owner and designer a large range of possibilities when designing.
Please consult with Vitragroup when considering digital print on Vitrapanel for advice on image requirements, panel sizes and general information.
Maximum Panel size for digital print is 2400 x 1200 in 9mm CFC.
As Vitrapanel is based on James Hardie Exotec facade system, it is typically fixed in the same manor screw fixed to the top hat system, except the screws are colour coded wafer head and is exposed. Please refer to the ExoTec Installation Manual.
Vitrapanel can be concealed fixed. This method is only recommended for panels located below 3000mm from ground level, for any panels above 3000mm from the ground a combination fixing is required where a screw is to be fixed at each corner of the sheet. Please contact us further advice.
