AkzoNobel has launched a new Chartek passive fire protection product aimed at the offshore oil and gas industry. Chartek 8E provides a significant reduction in applied weight, addressing a key customer need and resulting in a more sustainable passive fire protection offer.
"We know that applied weight is a key concern for our customers and the industry, so we set out to develop a lightweight solution that delivered this benefit alongside both 60min jet and pool fire ratings,” said Ian Fletcher, Oil and Gas Segment Manager at AkzoNobel’s Protective Coatings business.
Chartek 8E, based on proven in-service technology, is optimised to provide 60min resistance to the effects of hydrocarbon pool fires without the use of mesh; a 60min resistance to jet fires can also be achieved through the use of mesh reinforcement. Since its introduction in the 1970s, Chartek technology has gone on to be used by all of the world’s major oil companies.
