Home Vendor News MCA’S PAPER ON METAL COMPOSITE MATERIAL

When it comes to Metal Composite Material (MCM), the saying, “It takes a village…” is particularly true. To help clarify the steps and roles of the various parties involved, The Metal Construction Association(MCA) has published the white paper “Definitions: Who Does What in the Supply and Installation of MCM,” now available as a free download on its website: https://bit.ly/2RpABl5
“Too often, MCM issues are not directed to the appropriate responsible party, costing time and resources,” says Karl Hielscher, MCA Executive Director.
For example, visual problems with the installation are referred back to the MCM manufacturer, fabricators are contacted about panel color consistency, and designers and code enforcers aren’t sure how to verify that the materials and installation system comply with the local code requirements.
MCM is a factory-manufactured panel consisting of two metal skins bonded to both faces of an extruded plastic core using a continuous process where tension is applied to the skins to maintain flatness. This unique process makes MCM lighter and more versatile and flexible than a solid metal of similar thickness, qualities that have helpedtransform modern architecture.
With designers using MCM more frequently and for high-end monumental projects, this white paper will help them understand the roles of MCM manufacturers, distributors, fabricators of MCM panel systems, installers, and agencies who approve the listing and labeling of MCM according to code. Having this knowledge is essential to upholding industry standards for this important product.
“Designers must make sure that each element of the process, from materials to installation, is acceptable and meets the project requirements for quality and performance,” Hielscher points out.
