FIRE STOP MATERIALS

Overview

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.
