How It Works
PyroLogistix offers the finest line of fire retardant and fire barrier
products on the market today. PyroLogistix products are safe, incredibly
effective and environmentally friendly.
Fuel, oxygen and a source of ignition are the three components necessary
for fire. PyroLogistix products produce outstanding results by eliminating
TWO of these three components.
PyroLogistix products automatically react with fire or heat to convert
combustible gases and tars to non-combustible carbon char, nitrogen
and carbon dioxide. This chemical reaction causes the formation of a
cleverly reinforced, dense "foam" layer or carbon char. This
"foam" layer then acts as an insulating barrier separating
the substrate from the flames. The nitrogen and carbon dioxide by-products
from this reaction displace available oxygen right at the fuel source
thereby further suppressing the fire. Incredible thermal protection
is accomplished by building several stages into the reaction so that
as temperature levels increase more protection is automatically provided.
Simultaneously water vapour is created and released so that it actually
cools the substrate. These factors combine to extend the level and duration
of protection. Don't be fooled by competitor's extremely high intumescent
char heights, they look good in a demonstration but are as fragile as
a crystal goblet. The char has to be dense and strong to remain intact
in the turbulence of a real fire.
