Fitherm® GX-f is a graphite based intumescent product for the most challenging tasks. In case of fire, Fitherm® GX-f expands to multiple times its original volume and forms a heat-isolating shield. Particularly, Fitherm® GX-f achieves the highest char stability compared to other intumescent products. During expansion Fitherm® GX-f builds up very high pressure.
Fitherm® GX-f builds up a very effective barrier against fire and smoke. Fitherm® GX-f is especially developed for applications, where high expansion volume and pressure in combination with the stable char are required. Fitherm® GX-f is a halogen free product. Fitherm® GX-f strips bear a black glass fiber clothe on one side in its basic form and can be laminated with a PVC foil in different colors or other materials.
Fitherm® GX-f 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 dampers in ventilation systems
- pipe penetrations and cable transit systems
- fire doors and shutters
- partition walls
- glazing elements, ceilings and floors
- fire safes and document cabinets
- air grilles
- letterbox systems
Fitherm® GX-f should be stored under room conditions. During handling and processing the wearing of protective gloves is recommended.
