In our constant pursuit of innovation and excellence, we are thrilled to introduce the upgraded Protecta FR Coating, which comes with a host of new approvals and improvements. This high-performance ablative sealant coating is designed to elevate, seal, and fire-protect mineral fibres. Let’s delve into what makes this upgrade a game-changer.

The Science Behind Protecta FR Coating

Our Protecta FR Coating spray grade is built upon a robust polymer system, enriched with inert fillers, non-halogenated fire retardants, and a preservative to fend off microbial threats. It’s designed for direct spraying onto mineral fibres, providing not just protection but also a durable, flexible white surface finish upon drying.

Benefits That Matter

During the installation of mineral fibres, this cured sealant coating does more than you might expect. It significantly reduces de-lamination and enhances surface stability, making it an ideal choice for adhesive and fixing sealant application. But that’s not all; the upgrade brings forth some exciting new additions.

What’s New with the Upgrade?

Here are the key highlights of the latest Protecta FR Coating upgrade:

1. Floor Perimeter Gaps: This upgrade now has approvals for use in floor perimeter gaps, particularly non-vented gaps against facades. It’s a crucial addition for ensuring comprehensive fire protection in various structural contexts.

2. Rigid Walls: The coating’s versatility shines with additional approvals for rigid walls, including both horizontal and vertical linear gaps. This means you can count on Protecta FR Coating for a wider range of applications.

3. Linear Gaps in Floors: To meet diverse needs, we’ve secured approvals for linear gaps in floors. This expansion of applications ensures that you have the right tool for the job, no matter the scenario.

4. Compatibility with Metal Surfaces: We understand that projects often involve various materials. That’s why Protecta FR Coating now holds approvals for linear gaps against both aluminium and steel surfaces, providing you with even more flexibility.

5. Improved Fire Classifications: Your safety is our top priority. The upgraded Protecta FR Coating includes improved fire classifications, ensuring that it meets or exceeds the most stringent industry standards.

6. Enhanced Air and Smoke Permeability: Fire protection isn’t just about stopping flames; it’s also about managing smoke and airflow. This upgrade adds enhanced air and smoke permeability, enhancing overall fire safety.

The upgraded Protecta FR Coating is a testament to our commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions for fire protection. With its expanded range of approvals and improved features, it’s poised to elevate the safety and reliability of your projects. Stay tuned for more updates and innovations as we continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible in fire protection technology.
