Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2

Advantages

  • Non combustible (A1)
  • Fire resistance up to 360 minutes (depending on configuration)
  • Easy and fast to apply: does not require any primer
  • Good mechanical properties
  • Suitable for internal and external application
  • Resist to humid conditions

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 is a spray applied, single package factory controlled premix, based on vermiculite and Portland cement, for internal use. It produces a monolithic coating able to withstand the thermal shocks experienced in a high intensity cellulosic fire. Concrete structures in particular, will be protected from explosive spalling when coated with Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2.

Applications

Steel, concrete loadbearing structures

Full Cure By hydraulic set
Initial Set

2hourto 6hour at 20°C and 50% RH

Minimum Practical Thickness

8mm when unreinforced, 15mm when reinforced.

Number Of Coat One or more as required
Theoretical Coverage

172m²/tonne at 15mm thickness

Thermal Conductivity @ 20 °C

0.095W/m°K

Top Coating Cafco TOPCOAT® 200 may be used as protection from frequent wash down, long term chemical spills, or for improved resistance to fungal, algal and bacterial growth.

Application General

Mix Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 with potable water in a suitable mixer and apply by a spraying machine approved by Promat. Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 may be centrally pumped vertically or horizontally, enabling all spray plant and material storage to be contained in one area.

Substrates Preparation

The substrate shall be clean, dry and free from dust, loose millscale, loose rust, oil and any other condition preventing good adhesion Steelwork and concrete substrates should be covered with Cafco BONDSEAL®, an adhesive/keycoat, prior to the application of Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 (check classification reports, certificate or assessment for specific surface preparations)

Application Limitations

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 may be applied when the substrate and air temperatures are at least 2°C and rising, but should not be applied if the substrate or air temperatures are less than 4°C and falling. Maximum substrate and air temperature is 45°C.

Substrate temperature should be at least 2°C above dew point temperature.

Application Method

Mix Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 with potable water in a suitable mixer and apply by a spraying machine approved by Promat. Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 may be centrally pumped vertically or horizontally, enabling all spray plant and material storage to be contained in one area.  Most fire tests conducted have been carried out without mesh reinforcement, to demonstrate the ability of Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 to stay in place under the most severe fire conditions. However, for maximum long term in service durability, the use of lightweight mesh reinforcement is recommended where vibration or mechanical damage and the possibility of subsequent de-bonding exist.

Code of Compliances

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 satisfies the requirements of the following building codes: IBC – International Building Code - SBCCI – Southern Building Code Congress International - ICBO – International Conference of Building Officials - BOCA – Building Officials and Code Administrators International, Inc. - New York City – MEA
