Fire protection with carbon fiber reinforced composites have reached new standards in recent years. ZOLTEK has developed the PX30 Scrim Fabric to specifically address the requirements for industry-leading intumescent coating applications. This high temperature resistant carbon mesh is given a flame resistant coating to make it easy to handle and install as a lightweight reinforcement in intumescent coating applications in the oil and gas and jet fuel handling markets.
Widely used in the oil and gas, aerospace, automotive, and civil engineering industries, intumescent coatings engineered with ZOLTEK carbon fiber provide efficient protection from extreme heat and chemically abrasive environments. With impact on mass loss, time-to-ignation, specific mass loss rate, thermal response parameters, and gasification heat, ZOLTEK’s PX30 Scrim Fabric is the ideal material for most carbon fiber reinforced polymers.
