The new Chartek® passive fire protection coating is aimed at the offshore oil and gas industry. Chartek 8E provides a significant reduction in applied weight, addressing a key customer need and resulting in a more sustainable passive fire protection offering.

Chartek 8E, based on a proven in-service technology, is optimized to provide 60 minutes resistance to the effects of hydrocarbon pool fires without the use of mesh; a 60-minute resistance to jet fires can also be achieved through the use of mesh reinforcement.
