Partnering with The Best

A Purposeful Partnership

The synergistic partnership between Etalbond, Roxul, AXYZ, Benchmark, Johns Manville and Carter Architectural, acknowledges the unique qualities of each participant and the valuable contribution of each participant, to develop a winning building envelope solution. This growing alliance furthers the objective to create a turn-key wall assembly system, which will not only change the present standards, but establish the twenty-first century's demand for superior wall assembly performance, by design.

Our six businesses have a shared vision to create a superior insulated wall assembly system, designed to meet the NFPA 285 & CAN/ULC-S134-13, along with other changing standards. We have aligned our common goals and corporate philosophies in order that the needs and requirements for improved building envelope performance, can be attained and remain innovative.

Our purpose for partnering is to usher in a new approach to finding better ways to build and do business with a concerted effort to make decision-buying easier. Easier because of our solutions approach to be: effective, efficient, economical and environmentally driven. By investing in the future performance of building science, architectural and engineering firms can be confident in knowing the EVO285 and EVOMAXci wall assembly system can be created for specific requirements, regardless of geography.

Partnered, we are greater than our individual selves.

etalbond® is a technologically advanced product whose unique features facilitate creative architectural design. Curved and flat surfaces in vivid colours add an elegant sense in buildings and constructions of all kinds. Attractive and flexible, etalbond® is the appropriate cladding solution for interior and exterior surfaces in new constructions and renovations. The material is rigid, light, and durable and has good insulating properties, resulting in energy-efficient buildings. Furthermore, it is easily installed and formed into a variety of shapes.

etalbond® is a first-class sandwich-type composite panel consisting of a non-toxic polyethylene core firmly bonded between fine aluminium facing and backside sheets. etalbond® sheets are produced in different core thicknesses 2, 3 and 5mm with aluminium sheets of 0.5, standard sheet widths of 1250, 1500 mm and lengths 2000 up to 7000 mm. The total thickness of etalbond® is thus 3, 4 and 6mm. Bonding of the aluminium sheets with the core is accomplished by highly compressing the three parts (two aluminium sheets and adhesive along with the polyethylene) within the rolls, resulting in a strong and exceptionally rigid flat sheet of composite panel. etalbond® is ideal for using in severe environmental conditions such as in polluted urban and industrial areas, as the panels are practically maintenance-free; while their cleaning is easy.
