Introducing the newest product to our hydrocarbon passive fire protection range. 
Chartek® 2218 is our latest epoxy PFP system for installations requiring certification to the ANSI/UL1709 standard. Using patented technology, Chartek 2218 offers our lowest certified thickness for longer duration fires with the capability of jet fire protection. Simplified installation and unique rapid cure, even at low temperatures, enable faster application, improve production rates and reduce overall costs.

Fire Types

Real fires can have an infinite number of variations with respect to growth phase, peak temperature and duration. However, to allow for benchmarking between fire protection products, the industry has adopted standard fire curves for different types of fires. We have categorized fires into 2 types:
  • Cellulosic
  • Hydrocarbon (includes Jet fire)
Cellulosic Fires

Cellulosic fires are fueled by combustibles such as wood, paper, textiles, etc. The cellulosic standard fire curve reaches 932°F (500°C) within 5 minutes and rises to 2012°F (1100°C) and above over time.

FirestheticsTM is our extraordinary approach to architectural fire protection.  It is the harmonious fusion of science and art to create customized fire protection providing clear distinctive solutions for protecting exposed structures without diminishing architectural integrity and vision.
Hydrocarbon Fires

Pool Fires
Hydrocarbon fires are extremely turbulent. They are also known as pool fires and are fueled by oil and gas and have a very rapid heat rise to 1832°F (1000°C) within 5 minutes and rises to 2012°F (1100°C) shortly thereafter.
Jet fires
Are a particular group of hydrocarbon 
fueled fires expelled from an orifice under pressures of 2 bar or greater. They can have high erosive forces in addition to high heat fluxes above those experienced in open pool fires.
Our Hydrocarbon Fire Solutions
Our Cellulosic Fire Solutions
Unprotected steel experiences a rapid temperature rise when exposed to a fire. Our products help protect steel from reaching its “critical core temperature” within a certain time period. This critical core temperature is the temperature when steel starts to lose its load bearing capacity and can depend on the grade of steel used and its load bearing requirement.
