HyCOMB® Testing & Certificates

HyCOMB® is certified by ISO – PSB – Intertek and Miami Dade County for different application on our panels.

  • We apply ISO9001:2015 as and our quality management system so to ensure the quality of each panel.
  • Certificate of Conformity i.e. COC from PSB. It comprises of three fire tests which are BS476 Part 4, 6, 7. It is mainly for the Singaporean market since MRT and HDB request the cert as mandatory.
  • Warnock Hersey (WH) certificate – The Warnock Hersey (WH-ETL) Mark is North America’s leading product safety and performance mark for building and construction products. It covers the range of physical properties of our panels under ASTM standard, as well as the fire test and aging test. It is for the compliance of building codes in North American countries as well as some mid-east Asian countries say UAE and Qatar.
  • Notice of Acceptance (NOA) by Miami Dade County for applying HyCOMB® panel as external cladding at High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ). Detail information will be given in below sections.

HyCOMB® is certificated by Miami Dade County for applying our panel as external cladding at High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ).

The State of Florida, U.S. requires building envelope components and systems to have either a state or local product approval for demonstrating resistance to structural wind loads, while NOA is specifically for the HVHZ and includes approval of impact resistance. It is known by its stringent code and approval criteria. If the marketing plans includes HVHZ zone in U.S, NOA is more recognized by building officials, design professionals and contractors.

In addition most insurance companies are inclined to give more favorable rates for NOA products, and this is an ever-increasing financial issue that building owners are considering in construction decision-making.

List of Testings

1

Accelerated Aging Test

Accelerated Aging Test

-40 degree celcius to 80 degree celcius then back to -40 as one cycle. A total 60 cycles onward. The bonding strength tested under ASTM C297 remains at an excellent level.

Freeze Thaw Resistance

2

ASTM C67-11

Standard test method for sampling and testing brick and structural clay tile – Clause 9. One hundred cycles of freeze and thaw.

3

Surface Burning Test

ASTM E84

Test for surface burning characteristics of Building Materials. To determine the relative burning behavior by observing the flame spread along the specimen. Flame spread and smoke development index are record as ‘zero’ for HyCOMB® panels.

Wind Load Test

4

ASTM E283-04, ASTM E331-00, TAS 202-94 (ASTM E330-30)

Air infiltration test – Water infiltration test – Wind load test (+/-0.5DL, +/-DL; +/-0.75DL, +/-1.5DL).

5

Large Missile Impact

TAS 201-94

Testing for large missile impact. HyCOMB® panels passed the test with no failure record.
