CAFCO 300 AC / ISOLATEK Type 300 AC is part of the most innovative and widely specified and used commercial density family of Wet Mix Spray-Applied Fire Resistive Material (SFRM) in the world.
CAFCO 300 AC / ISOLATEK Type 300 AC is specifically formulated to achieve maximum productivity, creating on-site efficiencies unmatched by any other commercial density Wet Mix SFRM.
Its thermal performance advantages, enhanced physical performance characteristics, and increased productivity, enables CAFCO 300 AC / ISOLATEK Type 300 AC to emerge as the most advanced Wet Mix SFRM in the commercial construction industry.
- Up to a 25% increase in productivity compared to CAFCO 300 / ISOLATEK Type 300 results in greater efficiencies during application on-site.
- Offers the most cost effective fire resistance performance per unit thickness of any commercial SFRM in the world.
- Exceeds industry in-place physical performance standards.
- CAFCO 300 AC / ISOLATEK Type 300 AC provides equal, industry leading thermal performance advantages as CAFCO 300 / ISOLATEK Type 300.
- Meets or exceeds all major fire protection specifications for Commercial structures including ANSI/ UL 263, ASTM E119, CAN/ULC-S101.
- Offers LEED building credits for recycled content.
Designed to provide fire protection for up to 4 hour ratings to various floor and roof deck assemblies, steel beams, columns, and joists in commercial construction projects.
Fire Tests & Approvals
In order to meet the performance and durability criteria set forth by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and other major industry specifying organizations, CAFCO 300 AC / ISOLATEK Type 300 AC has undergone the most rigorous testing in accordance with the world’s most demanding safety protocols.
This cellulosic fire test is traditionally used to evaluate materials for use in the protection of modern day commercial structures. This test reaches 1000°F (537°C) after 5 minutes and gradually reaches a temperature of 2000°F (1093°C) after a period of up to 4 hours.
CAFCO 300 AC / ISOLATEK Type 300 AC is classified by Underwriters Laboratories for up to 4 hours protection in accordance with ANSI/ UL263 and is listed within various UL Designs.
The UL Classification Mark indicates compliance with global requirements as it relates to a specific risk or casualty. With the Classification service, UL determines that a manufacturer has demonstrated the ability to produce a product complying with UL’s requirements with respect to one or more of the following:
- Specific risk, e.g., casualty, fire, etc.
- Performance under specific conditions
- Compliance with regulatory codes
- Compliance with specific standards such as international standards
- Other condition, as determined by UL
All of the products carrying a UL Classification Mark are covered by UL’s Follow-Up Services program to verify that products carrying the UL Classification Mark continue to be manufactured in compliance with UL’s safety requirements.
CAFCO 300 AC / ISOLATEK Type 300 AC complies with the requirements of the following specifications:
