The fire-resistant board Palstop P5 is Branddex’ cost-efficient version that is used as coating or insert for construction elements. It can be used in fire rated doors, partition walls or construction elements that need a whole surface fire-resistance. Due to its good adhesive features it can be glued to different materials and therefore it can be combined with other materials (e. g. mineral wool) as sandwich insert.
Palstop P ax H is an advancement of the very successful Palstop P ax fire protection board. It has the same fire protection features as Palstop P ax product and, additionally, has a very good moisture resistance. This feature was tested and rated positively assessed by IFt Rosenheim testing centre (test report number: 12-001444-PR03). Therefore, the product is suitable for facades and rooms with increased humidity.
Depending on different load requirements, the Palstop P ax H layer thickness can be increased in order to reduce the price. It is found that with the layer thickness increase, the bending strength decreases and the price is lower.
In case of fire inadmissibly high temperatures on the unexposed side of the building element must be avoided. On the one hand, by means of Palstop Pax good Insulation is achieved, on the other hand, a construction element is effectively cooled above a certain temperature. It means that in case of fire, depending on application, the temperatures at the construction element stabilize or even decrease. Palstop Pax helps to achieve fire-resistance classes for building elements that are unavailable at the use of ordinary mineral boards (e. g. gypsum composite board).
Palstop P ax boards and strips are manufactured at customers’ specifications. The customer does not have to be worried about the cut and can immediately use the product.
Due to the fibreglass matting reinforcement Palstop P ax has a relatively high bending strength. Additionally there is only a slightly bending strength loss in case of fire. Thus Palstop P ax can contribute to the stability of the construction element in case of fire.
The non-flammable fire-resistant glue Palstop KL is suitable for sticking different materials together. By means of the glue, one can stick for example metal sheets with porous boards. Metal construction elements can be mounted to ceramic, wooden or other temperature resistant elements. Additionally seams and gaps can be sealed effectively by means of Palstop KL. This sealing is very temperature resistant.
Palstop P starts to foam under high pressure ( 0,9 N/mm²) at a temperature of 100 °C. In short time the board thickness can increase up to seven times. It creates a non-flamable, thermally insulating and pressure stable sealing material. This material closes gaps, seams and construction element conduits. Thus no hot gases and flames can penetrate. Due to the porous structure of the foamed material it has a very good thermal insulation. Additionally during the foam process a cooling effect occurs that works against a fast rise of the surface temperature of the protected building element.
Palstop P – strips can be offered with different colours and sizes. Thus a constructive and colour-coordinated matching to the construction element can be accomplished. One can chose between different strip thicknesses in order to increase the foam quality (thickness rise). Optionally there is the possibilty to order adhesive strips. Thus the strips are easy to stick to the intended constrution element.
