Intumescent thermal barrier for passive fire protection

The fundamental principle of a reaction to heat which is required by these systems can be achived using FireCarb. This expandable graphite product will, upon exposure to high temperatures, expand and create a significant volume of ash which is the principle of passive fire protection.

Typical applications using FireCarb are

  • door seals
  • pipe collars and wraps
  • fire pillows
  • intumescent liners for electrical fixing boxes and downlighters
  • air transfer grilles and dampers

LKAB Minerals' expandable graphite product FireCarb is used as an active agent to passively protect against fire where the significant expansion on exposure to heat and pressure generation is ideally suited.

The need for passive fire protection
