In specific applications, particularly for longer fire resistance times or peculiar environmental conditions, passive fire protection materials are preferred. The most impostant in this category are fireproofing sprayed mortars or renderings. These include lightweight high-performance mortars and high-density mortars. Chemically, they can be based on gypsum or cement, also referred to as cementitious fire protection.
For these materials, IRIS COATINGS is a distributor of PERLITA Y VERMICULITA, manufacturer of PERLIFOC, a gypsum-based mortar well known worldwide with UL and EN certifications.
