AREA OF USE
Fibo is an interior panel for use in wet and dry rooms in both domestic and public areas.
The panel is designed to be used in bathrooms, wet rooms, showers and other areas with excessive water exposure.
Panels can be fitted directly onto a concrete wall or plasterboard, over tiles or onto a timber framework. Refer to the manufacturers fitting instructions enclosed with panels.
It is critical that any exposed plywood on the panels must be sealed thoroughly in order to make them fully waterproof. Use corrosion-free screws and/or high tensile strength glue to fix panels to the wall. Use a polymer sealant (not silicone) for all joints between panels and profiles and around the bath and shower trays.
Recommended sealant: Hybrid polymer sealant such Fibo Seal, Soudaseal 215 LM or C-Tec CT1.
Recommended adhesive: High tensile strength, waterproof adhesive such as Fibo Adhesive, No Nails or Stixall.
Panels are available in different finishes depending on the colour chosen: Silk (S), High Gloss (HG), Extra Matt (EM), Saw Cut (SC), Cement (C), Rustic (RU), Stone (STN).

Panels should be stored flat, under cover in dry conditions. The decorative surfaces should be facing each other to prevent accidental damage. Do not prop up panels on their sides. The panel moisture content should be <15% before fitting. Important to acclimatise panels in ambient conditions for 3 days before fitting.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Wipe down with soft cloth & water or non-abrasive cleaner. Household solvents, disinfectants and detergents do not affect the durable surface. Do not use limescale removers, bleach, paint stripper, white spirit or toilet cleaners on the surface.

Fibo panels consist of a wooden core material covered with a decorative high-pressure laminate(HPL) on the front face and a backing laminate (HPL) on the reverse side. This core is specially developed 7-layer 9mm WBP (exterior grade) plywood. All panels and kitchen splashbacks are 70% PEFC Certified. The plywood core is excellent for wetrooms, showers and other areas with extremely high humidity. The long edges of the panels (600mm and 900mm) are delivered with the Aqualock “click lock” tongue & groove system for concealed fixing. 1200mm panels are straight edged without Aqualock.

Fibo Panels have a Class 2 Spread of Flame certification tested according to BS 476-7: 1987. Certain decors have Class 1 Spread of Flame certification. Please enquire at the Sales Office for further information.
High Pressure Laminate:
Paper forms the basis of high-pressure laminates (HPL). The paper is impregnated with phenolic and melamine resins, dried and finally compressed to form an extremely hard and stable material – High Pressure Laminate HPL.
HPL is a surface material that can be bonded to different kinds of substrates. HPL’s have a very good wear resistance as well as resistance to most chemicals.
The laminate meets the requirements of EN 438 Part 1 & 2 (ISO 4586)
|Wear Resistance (IP)||Good|
|Scratch Resistance (Abrasion)||>150|
|Heat Resistance||Max 180°C/356°F|
