FAQ

This is where we answer a range of questions that have frequently been asked about our MB Building Kit System. Unfortunately, we are not able to publish all the specific customer queries here. We have tried to select the most representative examples that are relevant to a wide range of sectors.

Question:
What exactly are the Profiles made of and what is a wrought aluminum alloy?

Answer:
Please refer to page 44 of our current catalog MB 7 where we provide a range of technical specifications. Further details are available in our PDF document we have “The alloy used in our aluminum profiles”

Question: 
Are all your products – especially aluminum profiles and panel elements – food safe? In other words, can these components be used in food industry applications without any problem, even when warm or hot ingredients are used?

Answer:
Our wrought aluminum alloy (and thus all our aluminum profiles) are physiologically harmless according to the German Food Law (Lebensmittel- und Bedarfsgegenstände Gesetz).
We guarantee the same properties for numerous panel elements in our product range.

Question:
Which item products contain silicone?
We have often been asked to provide a list of the products in the MB Building Kit System that contain silicone because various industrial sectors (notably OEM automotive suppliers) require this information.

Answer:
Here is a list of item products containing silicone:
