Fire exit sign with firecarb expandable graphite

Minelco is pleased to announce that it has completed registration of the FireCarb range of expandable graphite products according to the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulations.

Expandable graphite is the principal active agent in many passive fire protection products. Meanwhile it falls within the scope of REACH because it is a substance requiring registration in order trade legally within the EU. FireCarb is a high performance, highly consistent source of expandable graphite and has been supplied by Minelco for many years.

Achieving REACH registration for the FireCarb range of products demonstrates Minelco’s responsible approach to dealing with chemical preparations. And, more specifically, our commitment to supporting the European passive fire protection industry. We showed this by taking the steps necessary to continue supplying these products into the future.
