KBS Cable Coating is a water based ablative (non-intumescent) fire protective cable coating especially developed for the ﬁre protection of grouped or bundled electrical cables and for penetration seals. Tough, flexible, water and weather resistant, it has been used worldwide since 1967 for interior and exterior applications.
HOW IT WORKS
Exposed to fire an endothermic reaction occurs, resulting in a cooling effect for the coated cables. Additionally incombustible gaseous substances are generated producing a strong flame retardant effect. KBS Coating prevents flame spread along vertical or horizontal cables and prolongs circuit integrity without affecting the current carrying capacity.
KBS Coating has a LOI of 100 and is resistant to water, weathering, UV-radiation and ageing proven by a thirty year outdoor test. Additionally and many others. KBS Coating has a high resistance to many industrial chemicals such as detergents, solvents, lubricants, Diesel fuel, ethylene glycol, fuel oil, lubricating oil, turbine oil etc.
