Intumescent Tape is made from a graphite based, intumescent paper with a self-adhesive coating and a removable backing paper. It can easily be adhered to most clean surface types including glass, metals and plastic laminates. The reinforcing fibres on the product are classified for thermal insulation applications up to 1000 °C. (The classification temperature is based on limited irreversible linear change within a specified time, normally 24 hours. Classification temperature is not a definition of the operational limits of the product.
