Vermiculite fire spray
Isolatek Type 300
Isolatek Type 300 is gypsum based, fire protection spray that has been extensively tested for fire resistance and is rated for up to four hours for floor assemblies, beams, joists, columns, and roof assemblies.
The mixture is the most cost effective of its class requiring less material to achieve required fire ratings and offers the best fire resistance performance per unit thickness and can be sprayed directly on to raw steel cutting out the cost of priming.
Isolatek has a delayed set time to allow the mixture to stay in the pipelines for up to four days, reducing start up times, breaks in production and wash out at the end of the day.
Isolatek Type 400
ISOLATEK Type 400 is a cement based, wet mix, medium density spray-applied material that provides fire protection to beams, joists, columns, floor and roof assemblies in commercial and high-rise construction.
It is extremely durable making it ideal for applications in high traffic areas where impact is expected and is suitable for semi exposed areas. Isolatek Type 400 is great value, with no need for priming, great productivity, thermal qualities and offering the best fire resistance per unit thickness of any medium density Spray.
ISOLATEK Type II
ISOLATEK Type II is an inorganic, cement-based material for spraying on structural steel and concrete. It is the only low-density product that can be exposed to the elements during construction and no priming is needed on surfaces, lowering costs for installation. The product has been tested extensively for fire resistance and is rated up to 4 hours for fire protection. As well as its fire resistance properties, Isolatek Type II provides thermal and acoustic benefits. It reduces heat loss and is efficient in sound absorption, adding value to protected areas where high noise levels are anticipated.
CAFCO 300 Vermiculite Gypsum based Wet Mix Spray
CAFCO 300 is an Australian made product for internal use and may be applied with a trowel or spray application. It is lightweight coating providing very efficient fire resistance while adding minimal thickness to steel or concrete frames, metal floor and roof decks, and return air plenums. Designed primarily for structural steel coating on elements like columns, beams and wall brackets in commercial buildings.
CAFCO® Fendolite MII
Fendolite MII is a cement based vermiculite spray that is designed to be used in exposed environments. Fendolite is predominately designed and has certification for use in the petrochemical market on gas vessels, oil refineries and LPG tanks. Fendolite is made in Australia for Promat by Exfoliater. Swart & Sons uses Fendolite for most of our commercial contracts when there are exposed elements, such as, steel beams, columns and wall and floor penetrations through a fire rated element.
Swart & Sons are Adelaide's leading fire-rated duct installation contractors. We have unparalleled knowledge of cutting edge technologies from Australia and overseas.
VErmiculite spray on Ducts
Sprayed ductwork is still successfully used on many projects. It involves the pinning and meshing of ducts and then spraying with Vermiculite usually to a depth of 48mm for two hour fire protection. The benefit of Vermiculite is that it is inexpensive and can maintain up to a four hour rating on fire rated ductwork. This is often sufficient to achieve the required rating.
