PROMASTOP CABLE COATING

PROMASTOP® CC is an ablative coating suitable for application on power cables for reducing flame spread when exposed to a fire source. PROMASTOP® CC has a mild intumescent action reaction which provides an insulating effect to the cables when exposed to fire. This in turn ensures that the speed of the spread of flame across the surface of cables is dramatically reduced, and for some types of cable, the intumescent reaction can ensure that the cables remain functioning for a specified period. This is especially important for those cases where continuity of electrical power supply is of vital importance.

PROMASTOP® CC is supplied in 25kg buckets. It is to be stored in dry conditions. The expected shelf life for PROMASTOP® CC is 12 months in an unopened and properly sealed bucket.
