EIGHTEEN TIMES BIGGER WHEN HOT

Technical Fibre Products, a UK-based materials company, has introduced a new range of intumescent (heat expandable) materials.

These products are graphite based, mineral fibre stabilised mats and when heated expand up to 18 times their original thickness. Some grades can be impregnated with resins to produce composites with enhanced fire safety while others can be combined with traditional decorative materials.
