Arconic, the American manufacturing giant that sold combustible paneling used in Grenfell Tower, a London housing project that was the site of the deadliest fire here in decades, said Monday it would no longer sell the same type of material for use in high rises.
The use of Arconic's Reynobond PE cladding panels isn't allowed on tall buildings in the US and some other countries because of the fire hazard.
"We believe this is the right decision because of the inconsistency of building codes across the world and issues that have arisen in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy regarding code compliance of cladding systems in the context of buildings' overall designs". It supplied its PE cladding for use in Grenfell Tower despite publicly warning the panels were a fire risk for tall buildings.

This follows below par performances in the one-day worldwide series against England and the recently completed Champions Trophy . Dane Paterson had set the game up for Phehlukwayo in the Taunton win, but he was the main man in stopping England at the death.
Shares of Arconic had been on a tear entering Monday's session, rising 37.8 percent for the year.
The police investigation is focused on how the blaze started, how it spread so fast and whether any person or organizations should be held responsible.
