TFP offer a wide range of materials for use in the
infrastructure and construction market. This includes options to
provide high temperature insulation, fire protection and EMI
Tecnofire® delivers highly
effective passive fire protection. It provides a host of solutions
for both traditional gap filling and surface protection
applications. Tecnofire® intumescent expands
uni-directionally at temperatures above 190°C to produce an inert
char which protects the underlying structure. Typical applications
- Gap filling -
applications include pipe wraps and collars, joint seals, glazing
seals and door and ventilation grilles.
- Surface protection -
applications include composite fabrications, specialist fire doors
and fire resistant panels.
Key advantages to using Tecnofire® include it's stable
insulative char, resin infusibility and the range of expansion
ratios available (from 4.5:1 up to
35:1). This ensures TFP can provide a Tecnofire® solution to suit your
Like all TFP nonwovens, Tecnofire® can be tailor-made to suit
the intended application. Options available include the production
of complex shapes or hybrid structures and application of self
Typical applications in the infrastructure
and construction industries include:
Fire protection - Tecnofire® provides fire
protection for composite structures and in gap filling applications
such as fire doors, pipe wraps & collars and glazing seals.
Activated by heat to produce a stable char, Tecnofire® acts as an insulating
layer, offering enhanced fire protection to the underlying
insulation - TFP offer thermal insulation papers
produced from a broad range of fibres including glass,
mineral, AES (alkaline earth silicate), RCF (refractory ceramic
fibre) and alumina. This variety enables provision of effective
insulation at temperatures ranging from 500°C up to 1600°C, combined with
excellent cold-handling material strength and flexibility.
EMI shielding - Optiveil™ & Optimat® carbon and metal
coated carbon materials provide high levels of EMI shielding. These
mats and veils can be tailored to meet the required
attenuation values at certain specified frequencies. Used either in
isolation, or incorporated into a composite, it offers a
competitive lightweight alternative to traditional shielding
Surface finish - Optiveil™ provides a high
quality, resin rich surface finish without the use of a gel coat.
Optiveil™ delivers a weight
& cost saving by reducing both the amount of paint or resin
content required and the need to grind or polish.
