HENSOTHERM® 7 KS Gewebe, HENSOTHERM® 7 KS Gewebe SKL
Intumescent fabric strips with expandable graphite for industrial applications
HENSOTHERM® 7 KS Gewebe and HENSOTHERM® 7 KS Gewebe SKL (self-adhesive on one side) intumescent fabric strips are available in different widths and thicknesses making them suitable for a wide range of industrial fire protection applications to greatly enhance the fire protection properties of products, machinery and equipment.
The highly flexible fabric strips consist of A2 glass filament fabric coated on one or both sides with the intumescent HENSOTHERM® 7 KS fire protection coating. The HENSOTHERM® 7 KS Gewebe SKL fabric strip is available ex works as a self-adhesive version, which enables quick installation. Both versions can be easily cut to size with a knife or scissors. Also, special and irregular shapes may be punched out.
Intumescent substances such as expandable graphite, also called “foaming”, expand under the influence of heat and increase greatly in volume, so that a protective insulation or intumescent layer is formed, which delays the passage of heat and can also seal cavities.
The HENSOTHERM® 7 KS fire protection laminate reacts and expands strongly under the effect of temperature already from approx. 150 °C, whereby an insulating compact carbon layer is formed with high pressure in the event of fire and protects important components. Due to the low reaction temperature in combination with a high foaming factor and inflation pressure, joints or openings are quickly sealed in case of fire, so that a safe fire and smoke gas sealing of individual components and the entire construction is ensured and toxic fire gases are encapsulated.
The HENSOTHERM® 7 KS fire protection compound coated on the strips is classified according to DIN EN 13501-1 as well as DIN 4102-1 and has high anti-drumming and sound-insulating properties. Even strips of higher nominal thickness remain flexible, do not break and can be processed in tight turns, making them ideal for use in door and window construction, the automotive industry or electrical/information technology.
A high blowing pressure or a strong expansion do not always equate to better fire protection performance. The temperature that triggers intumescence, the reaction time until the maximum height of the intumescent layer is reached, but also the stability and the inflation pressure of the intumescent layer formation can be optimally adjusted to the respective application.
