Fitherm - GS
Fitherm® GS is a newly developed graphite based intumescent product. In case of fire Fitherm GS expands to multiple times its original volume and forms a heat-isolating shield. Particularly, Fitherm GS achieves the highest char stability compared to other intumescent products. Fitherm GS starts expanding at a relatively low temperature of around 150°C.
Fitherm GS fills gaps and cavities and builds up a very effective barrier against fire and smoke. A combination of precise dimension and excellent intumescent properties makes this product suitable for the most challenging tasks for intumescent materials. Fitherm GS is a halogen free product. Fitherm GS strips can be laminated with a PVC foil in different colors, with a fiber glass layer or other materials, on the other side optional with a high quality self-adhesive for easy installation and durable fixing.

Fitherm GS is developed for a wide range of applications where an intumescent material is necessary to maintain the system integrity and insulation in case of fire. These systems are for example;
- fire doors and shutters
- partition walls
- glazing elements, ceilings and floors
- fire safes and document cabinets
- air grilles and dampers
- letter box systems
- pipe penetrations and cable transit systems
Fitherm GS is available as flexible rolls in the following standard dimensions, other measures on request:
Thickness: minimal 0.55mm, 1mm, 1.5mm or 2mm
Width: 10mm, 15mm and 20mm
Length: 25 meter with or without self-adhesive backing
Lamination with PVC foil in different colors or glass fiber cloth is possible. Encapsulation into uPVC in different colors is optional in a width of 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40 and 60mm.
