Description

Fire-proof fibreglass sheeting for roofing and cladding applications, comprising an intumescent impregnated glass tissue which is manufactured within the sheeting.

Features and benefits:

  • Fire resistant - on exposure to flame or radiant heat, the sheet will form a carbon char. This char will not support a flame or burning, and will insulate against any heat source.
  • Hail resistant.
  • Will not discolour after prolonged UV exposure.
  • Halogen free and non-toxic.
  • No loss of strength or stiffness.
  • Completely free from bromine (fire retardant chemical).
  • Blocks 99.9% of harmful UV radiation.
  • Stable light transmission.
  • No surface erosion.
  • Can be produced with chemical resistant resin - consult manufacturer for details.
