CAFCO® 300 is a lightweight coating that provides very efficient fire resistance with minimal thickness to steel and concrete structures, metal floor and roof decks, return air plenums and air handling ductwork.
Steel structures protected with CAFCO® 300 have undergone fire resistance tests up to 240 minutes in approved independent laboratories to recognised standards throughout the world, including:
Fire resistance test results relate solely to the constructions tested and test conditions imposed.
