Product description, marking and quality control3.1 The sandwich panels are fabricated by gluing the coilcoated structural steelfaces on the stone wool core. The stone wool used is special structural woolin which the wool fibres are uniformly aligned to achieve controlled strengthproperties. Stone wools used in panels are PAROC CES 35C, CES 50C, CES 50F andCES 75F. Stone wools are CEmarked according to the standard EN 13162. ECcertificatenumber is 0809CPD0568.3.2 The gluing of panels is performed with polyurethane based adhesive.3.3 The faces are usually galvanised steel sheets that have a nominal thickness of 0.5 ...0.7 mm. The steel grade used is EN 10326S320GD+Z275. The standard coatings arepolyvinylidenefluoride, (PVDF) 27 µm for external use, and polyester (SP) 25 µm forinternal use. The colour alternatives can be selected from the standard colours or fromspecial alternatives. Other facing materials, such as stainless steel, copper and aluminiumsheet, may also be used with back coating.3.4 The nominal width of the panels is 1200 mm. The maximum length of the panels is12 000 mm.Available panel thickness classes are 50, 80, 100, 120, 150, 175, 200 and 240 mm.Different panel types can be chosen according to the required strength and fireproperties.Type AST ® T is intended to be used in internal and external walls and it has goodinsulation properties. Type AST ® S is intended to be used in facades and partition wallsin normal use in buildings and it has normal fire properties. Type AST ® F is normallyused in partition walls for fire protection purposes but can be used also in facades ifhigher fire resistance and strength properties are required. Type AST ® E is used inceilings and walls with high strength and fire requirements.3.5 The joints of adjacent panels in external walls are sealed on site from the warmerside with sealant or a sealing strip, and, if needed, from both sides. Detailed jointconstructions for different applications are given by the manufacturer.

Sound insulation / Acoustical performance8.1 The sound insulation properties of the Panel system depend on the thickness of thestone wool core, types of the supporting system and fastening methods, other coveringspossibly used and also air tightness of the joints and possible perforations.8.2 The sound insulation properties are measured according to EN ISO 140. Theweighted sound reduction index R w , R w + C and R w + C tr are evaluated according to ENISO 717. The frequency range R w + C and R w + C tr is extended to 50 5 000 Hz.Table 9a.

Moisture behaviour9.1 The surfaces of the panels are water and vapour tight.9.2 According to test methods EN 12114 and EN 12865 defined in the standard EN14509, the air tightness and rain tightness has been measured for a construction 3 x 3 m 2consisting of 80 mm thick Paroc panels with different joint constructions. The results aregiven in table 10.The results are also given in Table 10Table 10.

In very humid conditions special attention must be paid to air tightness of thepanel system. Because the core material, stone wool, is of a nonhygroscopic type themoisture, in the case of leakage, spreads very slowly within the wool. The panels must,however, be protected from long term water influence.9.5 In addition to the panel joints also other construction details have an effect on therain and air tightness of the construction. Window, door and other openings in theconstruction must have proper air and rain tightness to guarantee satisfactory functionof the panel solutions.9.6 Water absorptions of the wool cores of all types of insulations are smaller than WS 1(kg/m 2 ), WL(P) 3 (kg/m 2 ).

VTT CERTIFICATE NO 163/01, Date of issue 30.9.1996 Updated 20.12.2002, 7.8.2003 and 20.12.200813When wall or ceiling constructions made of Paroc Panel panels have fire resistancerequirements the constructions are considered as nonload bearing constructions.In a fire situation the panels are acting as catenary constructions because the exposedsteel sheet will disconnect from the stone wool core in an early stage of fire. The fixingsto the bearing construction, that must have at least the same fire resistance as the panelconstruction, must be designed accordingly.The elements are not allowed to extend from one fire compartment to another in neitherdirection.Electrical installations have to be installed on the surface of the elements instead ofembedding in the panels.Fire resistance of penetrations in Paroc Panel wall structures have to be verifiedseparately.For allowed span lengths in fire situations national regulations apply.12. Durability12.1 The panels are coated with organic coil coatings, which stand up well to theeffects of normal weather stresses. The coatings protect the metal facings below. Thepanels coated with polyester are used in low to medium corrosivity categories mainlyindoors. The panels coated with PVDF are mainly used outdoors and can also be used inmore aggressive environments like industrial surroundings12.2 The long term performance of the panel system depends on permanence of thetightness of the joints and load bearing properties. Load bearing performance over timeis taken into account in dimensioning of the structures (chapter 7). Maintenanceguidance by the manufacturer must be followed.12.3 An influence of long term thermal and humidity stresses on the panels in externalwalls is estimated to decrease the strength of the panels approximately 20 % after 50years in European climatic conditions13. Environmental aspects13.1 The stone wool products meet the Finnish requirements regarding health andsafety at work and user safety.13.2 The dust release from free stone wool surfaces is very small according to themeasurements. Paroc panels are faced with steel and the joints are air tight. The cuttingof the panels during the installation is the only stage during which some dust may occur.13.3 The organic emissions from the rock wool have been monitored over sevenyears. The measured maximum formaldehyde emissions were between 0.004 0.021mg/m 3 . No phenol emissions were detected.

Theresults show that bacterial cells and/or spores (mould) will not survive or spread in thestone wools used in the panels.13.6 The stone wool is according to the EU classification non carcinogenic.INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION AND USE14.
