Protect Cargo with Intumescent Coated Fabrics
ARMATEX® Silicone/Intumescent Coated Fabrics are flexible coated fabrics that are non-toxic, have no odor, low heat release and low smoke, and are refractory fire resistant.
Intumescent coating is made with a protective substance that is activated by a heat generating chemical reaction. The initiation of this reaction causes the intumescent particles to swell and form an insulating layer on a surface, with or without release of water. The key feature of intumescents is that they expand significantly when exposed to high temperatures, such as those found in a fire. Therefore, this type of coating provides a cost-effective as well as practical solution for fire protection.
Coated on one side with an intumescent coating and the other side with silicone rubber, ARMATEX® SIF Silicone/Intumescent Coated Fabrics are designed for applications including cargo covers, fire and smoke barriers, and construction protective barriers, and are excellent for both indoor and outdoor use.
With outstanding durability and flexibility, ARMATEX® SIF Silicone/Intumescent Coated Fabrics provide superior protection from UV, moisture and mildew, and have high dirt resistance and excellent washability.
