With a coefficient of linear thermal expansion a = 0.08 mm/m°C, KOMATEX sheets vary more in length than wood or metal. When you install screen-printed advertising boards or fix curtain walling and cladding, possible sheet expansion has to be taken into account. The appropriate fixing method depends on the application.
Always store KOMATEX sheets on a dry and even surface in heated rooms at 15 – 20°C (59 – 68°F). Sheets inside the packing must not be exposed to weathering and solar radiation.
