Resistance to fire, sun and freezing

DKTN has the best classification in terms of fire resistance: A1. UV rays do not deteriorate or change its colour, it remains unchanged over time. It is not affected by sudden changes in temperature as it is resistant to thermal shock.

Excellence in ultra-compact facades  - CHECK 82

Determination of thermal shock resistance according to UNE EN ISO 10545-9

For ventilated facades, the material is delivered in mesh with A2 s1 d0 classification.

High resistance to ultraviolet rays

Acid and scratch-resistant

Haute résistance aux taches

Excellence in ultra-compact facades  - icon 84
Flexural strength

When comparing DKTN with other common façade materials, according to the EN 14411 rule, we find that:

DKTN values higher than 45 N/mm2

Extruded Ceramic (A1b) min. > 18 N/mm2

Dry Pressed Ceramic (B1a)min.>32 N/mm2

Maximum fire and heat-resistance

Résistant à l’usure

Resistance to thermal shock
