Prevent Cable Fires From Spreading with CharCoat CC
Industrial fires in Australia can be devastating, not only to human life, but also to the facility. CharCoat CC is a specially formulated intumescent cable coating, tested and proven to prevent cable fires from spreading out of control. Protect your business and assets with the latest in passive fire protection technology from CharCoat.
Unprotected electrical cables (sheaths) are some of the most highly flammable materials in the workplace. By protecting HV (high voltage) and LV (low voltage) cables with CharCoat CC you will not only be preventing the spreading of cable fires, but you will also be able to identify the location of a short circuit, due to an intumescent char forming at the spot of failure. This will allow you to address and fix a cable issue before it is too late.
CharCoat CC will last the life time of the cable with applications now over 35 years.
CharCoat CC is a water-based Intumescent Latex coating for interior and exterior applications (UV Tested and approved). Our coatings are developed to stop fire from spreading on single, grouped or bundled electrical cables and meet the strictest fire-rated standards in the industry, including FM Globals’ FM3971: Flame Retardant Coating for Grouped Electrical Cables.
