The fundamental principle of a reaction to heat which is required by these systems can be achived usingFireCarb. This expandable graphite product will, upon exposure to high temperatures, expand and create a significant volume of ash.
In applications such as door seals, pipe collars and wraps, fire pillows, intumescent liners for electrical fixing boxes and downlighters and air transfer grilles and dampers LKAB Minerals' expandable graphite product FireCarb is used as an active ingredient.
The significant expansion of FireCarb upon exposure to heat means the passive fire protection product will compartmentalise buildings in the outbreak of fire thus restricting the spread of flames and smoke.
