BISCO Fire Protective Covering (FPC) is a high performance specialty silicone foam designed to protect sensitive components from fire damage. This patented material can resist the burn-through of flames while reducing the spread of flames to other areas. FPC silicone is typically wrapped around cables or electronics, but can also be used as a barrier curtain or blanket on airplanes or in fire suits.

Features

  • Fabricated with silicone elastomer cast directly onto reinforcing fiberglass layer
  • Available thicknesses from 0.063 to 0.250 in.
  • Resists continuous temperatures from -55°C to 200°C (-67° to 392°F)
  • Resists intermittent temperatures from -250° to flames at 1038°C (-482° to 1900°F)
  • Provides good resistance to arcing

Benefits

  • Emits low levels of smoke and toxic gas, making FPC ideal for aircraft and railcar cabins
  • Flexible and durable with good tear resistance
  • Protects areas for prolonged periods of time
