Fitherm® GC is a flexible intumescent sheet based on expandable graphite and especially developed for the use as cable bandage against fire in all electric installations. In case of fire Fitherm® GC will expand to multiple times its original volume and build a very effective barrier around cables against fire and smoke. Fitherm® GC expands to a preferential direction perpendicular to the sheet and prevents spreading-out of a fire along the cable channel.
Fitherm® GC can be easily wrapped around cables and cable ducts. A combination of precise dimension and excellent intumescent properties makes this product suitable to reach a high level of fire-protection, also for other applications. Fitherm® GC sheet has a glass fiber cloth on one side and can be laminated with different sheet materials on both sides if necessary in different applications, for example, with a high quality self-adhesive for easy installation and durable fixing.
Fitherm GC is developed especially for protecting cable/cable bundle against fire in electric installations like:
- power stations
- transformer stations
- commercial and residential buildings
- transportation systems
Fitherm GC can be stored under normal room conditions without special care. During handling and processing the wearing of protective gloves is recommended.

Thickness: minimum 0.55 mm, 1 mm or 1.5 mm.
