Cafco FENDOLITE® MII produces a monolithic coating able to withstand thermal shocks experienced typically in a high intensity hydrocarbon fire. Concrete structures in particular, will be protected from explosive spalling when protected using Cafco FENDOLI


Fire resistance

Steel and concrete structures protected with Cafco FENDOLITE® MII have undergone fire resistance tests up to 240 minutes in approved independant laboratories to recognised standards throughout the world, including:

  • Australia (AS 1530: Part 4: 2005)
  • France, Hydrocarbon Modified Curve
  • Germany (DIN 4102: 1977-2009)
  • International Standard ISO 834: 2002
  • Italy (UNI 11076)
  • Netherlands, RWS (fire test procedures for tunnels GT-98036-1a)
  • UK (BS 476: Parts 20 and 21: 1987 Appendix D and Euroclass A1 according to EN 1350-1)
  • USA (ASTM E119: 1998, UL 263 and UL 1709 - Design No. XR719)

Fire resistance test results relate solely to the constructions tested and test conditions imposed.

Material class (Euroclass A1 according to EN 1350-1) Non combustible
