Intumescent material for fire- and heat-protection
flaton-flex A is a highly flexible intumescent material for fire-protection applications that stays physically intact even at very small bending radius and therefore allows application in complicated geometries. In case of fire, it produces a heat insulating foam that fills joints, gaps and other vents and inhibits the passage of heat.
The start of expansion at app. 145 °C, a high expansion velocity and the high expansion volume make the difference to competing products.
flaton-flex A is halogen-, antimony-, silicone- and solvent-free.
