Intumescent thermal barrier for passive fire protection

FireCarb is used as an active agent to passively protect against fire.

Sales Manager

This is done in situations where the significant expansion on exposure to heat and pressure generation is ideally suited.

The 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

The need for passive fire protection

Modern construction methods increasingly rely on such products to compartmentalize buildings in the outbreak of a fire thus containing the fire and restricting the spread of smoke and flames.
