The method of fixing Recycled Composite Material (RCM) is simple and is done in the conventional way that metallic reinforcements are fixed. It is easily welded and provides 20% – 30% higher weld strength than using traditional reinforcement materials.
Supplied as an alternative to either steel or aluminium sections RCM is a cost effective alternative. It offers superb benefits where the anchorage of hardware is required in window and door outer frames and casement window sashes.
RCM is an excellent insulation material and has a thermal resistance value of – 0.17 w/m2K. RCM is less conductive than steel or aluminium, increasing thermal efficiency.
Using RCM achieves improved Window Energy Rating (WER) over comparative windows with a steel or aluminium reinforcement.
