Chartek 2218

Introducing the newest product to our hydrocarbon passive fire protection range. 
Chartek® 2218 is our latest epoxy PFP system for installations requiring certification to the ANSI/UL1709 standard. Using patented technology, Chartek 2218 offers our lowest certified thickness for longer duration fires with the capability of jet fire protection. Simplified installation and unique rapid cure, even at low temperatures, enable faster application, improve production rates and reduce overall costs.

Fire Types

Real fires can have an infinite number of variations with respect to growth phase, peak temperature and duration. However, to allow for benchmarking between fire protection products, the industry has adopted standard fire curves for different types of fires. We have categorized fires into 2 types:

  • Cellulosic
  • Hydrocarbon (includes Jet fire)

Unprotected steel experiences a rapid temperature rise when exposed to a fire. Our products help protect steel from reaching its “critical core temperature” within a certain time period. This critical core temperature is the temperature when steel starts to lose its load bearing capacity and can depend on the grade of steel used and its load bearing requirement.
