Insulfrax® Marine Blanket

Insulfrax® Marine Blanket is a totally inorganic, flexible, high-temperature insulation blanket specifically designed to provide passive fire protection for marine applications. The calcium, magnesium, silicate chemistry is designed to enhance biosolubility. Unifrax's proprietary fiber spinning technology combined with mechanical needling of the fibers eliminates the need for binders in the product. This results in a material with high tensile strength and superior thermal and acoustical properties. Insulfrax Marine Blanket is chemically stable and its thermal properties are unaffected after exposure to water immersion or high humidity.

Insulfrax Marine Blanket provides fire protection insulation for a variety of rated assemblies on marine structures and vessels. Thin, lightweight systems combined with a flexible product form results in lower installation costs and significant weight savings. This offers builders and owners reduced structure weight, which may yield increased vessel speed, fuel savings and available payloads. Insulfrax Marine Blanket provides the following products features:

· U.S. Coast Guard approved for steel and aluminum structures
· Complies with SOLAS safety objectives and new IMO FTP Code fire test requirements
· Fire protection systems for bulkheads and decks
· Significant weight savings versus mineral wool systems
· Flexible blanket is easy to cut and install

Insulfrax Marine Blanket is utilized to insulate bulkheads and decks on passenger and vehicle fast ferries, cruise ships, commercial and military vessels, and offshore oil platforms. Tested systems are in compliance with U.S. Coast Guard regulations, now defined under IMO Res. A.754(18). Typical applications include:

· Aluminum and steel bulkheads and decks
· Vehicle loading areas, engine rooms, storage areas, etc.
· Various H-Rated offshore structures
· Non-combustible insulation
