Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2

Vermiculite & Portland Cement Based Wet Mix Spray

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 is a spray applied, single package factory controlled premix, based on vermiculite and Portland cement.

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 produces a monolithic coating able to withstand thermal shocks experienced in a cellulosic fire. Concrete structures in particular, can be protected from explosive spalling when coated with Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2.

Although low in density, thus significantly reducing dead load, Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 is highly durable and will not crack or spall under mechanical impact.

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 is used for application to steel frames, metal floor or roof decks, and return air plenums. It may be easily removed and reinstated locally when additional fixings are required. Building types that benefit from the use of Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 include a wide range of educational, leisure and entertainment centres, commercial or industrial projects.

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 may be applied within environments where limited exposure to the elements is likely throughout the building phase of the project, e.g. perimeter beams.

TECHNICAL PROPERTIES

Fire resistance

Steel structures protected with Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 have undergone fire resistance tests up to 240 minutes in approved independent laboratories to recognised standards throughout the world, including:

  • Australia (AS 1530: Part 4: 2005)
  • Germany (DIN 4102: 1977-2009)
  • International Standard ISO 834: 2002
  • UK (BS 476: Parts 20 and 21: 1987)
  • USA (ASTM E119: 1998 and UL 263)

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 protected structures have been successfully tested under BS 476: Part 21: 1987 to failure temperatures of up to 800ºC. This allows the specifier the freedom to adopt a fire engineering approach to fire resistance in accordance with BS 5950: Part 3 and 8: 1990, as well as the relevant Eurocodes. Fire resistance test results relate solely to the constructions tested and test conditions imposed.

Material class (BS 476: Part 4: 1970) Non combustible
Spread of flame (as defined by building regulations) Class 0
Smoke generation Does not contribute to smoke generation
Alkalinity pH 12.0~12.5
Thermal conductivity at 20°C W/m°K 0.095
Theoretical coverage at 15mm thickness m²/tonne 172
Number of coats One or more as required
Cure By hydraulic set
Initial set at 20°C and 50% RH 2~6 hours
Density kg/m³ 390 ± 15% when dry and in place
Bond impact (ASTM E760: 1992-2005) No cracks or delaminations
Air erosion resistance (ASTM E859: 1993-2006) No erosion
Compressive strength (ASTM E761: 1992-2005) kPa 563
Deflection effect (ASTM E759: 1992-2005) No delamination or cracking within normal code limits
Corrosion resistance Does not promote corrosion of steel. Please seek advice of structural engineer concerning long term corrosion protection, particularly when the structure is to be fully exposed to prevailing weather conditions.
Colour and texture condition Off-white with a monolithic spray texture
