Description How to Apply
 
CharCoat is an FM-Approved Intumescent Latex Cable Coating that stops fire from spreading on the cable surface at the source and simultaneously increases the fire resistance of the Electrical Power, Control or Communication Cable (single, grouped or in tray) for 90 minutes under IEC 60331-11/21 (750°C).
As an Intumescent Coating, CharCoat CC protects through Insulation, expanding under heat to form an insulating char (up to 700%) that continues to insulate and protect the cable under fire for a period of time. CharCoat CC is an Intumescent Latex and 100% UV stable, and can be applied to exterior cables (salt water exposure testing to FM3971 / UV stability test completed 2016). It is perfect for full exterior application.
UV rays are quite damaging to electrical cable sheaths, but applying CharCoat CC on exterior cable will extend the lifetime of any cable without failure. Lifetime extension of the cable is paramount in facilities where re-cabling costs are sometimes financially crippling, but required. In coating the cables with CharCoat CC, facilities protect the sheath from damaging UV rays and can, in most cases, extend the lifetime of the cable up to 15 years.
