Ceram Polymerik Pty Ltd has innovative new technology in polymer composites for passive fire protection. In a fire, these composites transform into a ceramic structure once the activation temperature is reached. The technology is very effective in a wide range of plastics and rubbers. Composites can be made flexible or rigid to meet the particular requirements of a fire protection component or material.
This technology evolved from several years of Research and Development by the Cooperative Research Centre for Polymers. As a world first, the technology has been successfully commercialized by Olex Australia as insulation for their Pyrolex Ceramifiable high performance fire cable.
