Isolatek International was established in 1875 as a manufacturer of mineral wool and today is a global leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of proprietary passive fire resistive materials for steel protecting commercial, industrial, petrochemical and tunnel projects.
Isolatek International is the trade name of United States Mineral Products Company.
Over a half century ago, Isolatek International introduced its first spray applied fireproofing material under the CAFCO brand name. Its focus was on meeting the needs of the commercial segment of the non-residential construction industry. In the '90s, Isolatek International broadened its product lines and developed and introduced SprayFilm water-based intumescent coatings, introduced CAFCO-BOARD Rigid Board and purchased certain assets from Mandoval Limited, which included FENDOLITE M-II Spray-Applied Fireproofing, positioning Isolatek International as the global leader in hydrocarbon fire protection. By the end of the decade, Isolatek International offered one of the broadest selections of fire protection materials providing architects with unique fire protection solutions and options to meet fire protection needs across all non-residential construction sectors.
Isolatek International has taken passive fireproofing technology to a new level with its global expansion supported by five licensee manufacturing operations outside the Americas which complement its five manufacturing operations in the Americas.
Today, Isolatek International markets its products under the CAFCO and FENDOLITE trademarks throughout the Americas and under the ISOLATEK trademark throughout the rest of the world.
