Our core competence – your competitive edge

We offer the development, testing and production of intumescent and ablative building materials, components and coatings as a service – also as a partner for research projects, e.g. under the German Act on Tax Incentives for Research and Development or other EU programmes.

Intumescent materials such as expandable graphite, expand under the influence of heat and increase greatly in volume, so that a protective insulating layer is formed which delays the passage of heat and can also seal cavities. However, a strong expansion is not synonymous with better fire protection performance! The temperature that triggers intumescence and the reaction time until the maximum height of the intumescent layer is reached, as well as the stability and the inflation pressure of the intumescent layer formation, must be optimally adjusted to the respective application. For example, for intumescent strips made of HENSOTHERM® 7 KS fabric with self-adhesive lamination, which are used for fire protection upgrading of doors, windows, battery packs or electrical cabinets.

Ablative substances, on the other hand, delay the heat transfer to the materials to be protected by releasing chemically bound water. In addition to this “cooling effect”, the fire gases are diluted, i.e. the toxicity of the gases is reduced. For example, escape and rescue routes thus remain passable for longer, and there is less smoke-related obstruction of visibility. In addition, our ablative waterproof, oil- and gasoline-resistant fire protection coating HENSOMASTIK® 5 KS paint not only has an EPD, it is also weatherproof, UV-resistant, ageing-resistant and mechanically resilient.

These properties can also add value to your product. Just turn our know-how into your competitive edge!
