01 product description
The architects of the Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw attached great importance to a natural colour effect of the building facade. They envisioned the building envelope as several parts of a puzzle in different colours. The unique aura of the museum is due to this design concept. The building exudes progress and modernity, combined with a deep respect for nature and its inimitable secrets.
For this project the fibreC panels were produced in seven special colours in addition to the four standard colours. fibreC has one distinct advantage over other colour-treated materials – the consistent colouring of the entire panel. The mixture of the desired colour is created before the actual production process starts. Thus the colour becomes part of the product by being added during the blending of the raw materials.

03 Technical Data
A new concrete quality:
-Increased fire resistance: good thermic values and fire resistance class A1 according to DIN standard, highest fire resistance and thermal stability up to 350°Celsius
-Performance: highest loading capacity at minimum cross sections and enormous panel sizes set new standards in facade engineering for interior and exterior applications.
-Long-term durability: proven long-term durability for both interior and exterior applications thanks to highest product quality.
-Authenticity: The use of purely mineral raw materials in the concrete matrix results in top quality meeting the highest requirements. fibreC is authentic. Concrete - not more and not less!
-Formability: bending, forming and chamfering of elements in one piece at constant solidity and without adhesive
-Individuality: A maximum degree of individuality of the elements is achieved by the new concept of industrial manufactory. Each element is unique in size, colour and surface.
fibreC glassfibreConcrete has a durability of over 50 years. Natural signs of wear in no way impair the mechanical load capacity and safety of the panels. Soiling, e.g. through street exposure, can influence differences in colour and gloss more strongly over the years than natural weathering. Upon request we will be pleased to send you information material on tests and certificates regarding maintenance and durability!

What you need for building
With around 1,300 exhibitors and more than 115,000 visitors, this year's "Swissbau" in Basle was an innovative and highly successful trade fair that satisfied exhibitors and visitors alike. In 2014 "Swissbau" will be held in the architects Herzog & de Meuron's new extension to the complex. In a series of images we present you with the highlights of this year's fair.› To the article
