Fire-resistant foams, carpets, roofing, and building materials are all enabled by heat-activated, graphite-fire-stop additives. These specially formulated graphite flakes can be inert for years, but when exposed to the heat of a fire, will instantly expand to several hundred times their original volume, providing both a fire-stop- and a smoke-stopping char layer.
Fire Retardant Additives
Construction materials are increasingly regulated by fire-safety codes to limit fire propagation. GRAFGUARD fire-stop graphite flake material is non-halogenated, lead- and chrome-free, used synergistically with other commonly used flame retardants in putties, pastes, coatings, foams, and roofing materials.
GRAFGUARD graphite flake materials have engineered intumescent temperatures tailored to meet challenging processing requirements, from room temperatures to 230°C. Their product consistency and unlimited shelf life are unsurpassed.
