Class O foams
There are many applications where foam not only has to offer a high level of performance in terms of fire protection and thermal insulation, but it also has to comply with stringent regulations in order to offer a safe and effective solution. This is particularly true in the construction industry where building regulations apply in relation to both noise pollution and fire retardancy.
With over two decades' experience in processing a wide range of foam solutions to the industrial, commercial and domestic building sector, at Technical Foam Services, not only do we manufacture products that offer excellent acoustic and thermal insulation, we also offer the widest choice of solutions to meet Class O fire retardancy standards.
These include Pyrosorb and Fireseal polyurethane (PU) solutions as well as Class O rated Basotect melamine foam goods for a wide spectrum of applications, which include:
- HVAC linings
- Ceiling tiles
- Wall panels
- Suspended sound absorbers
- Pipe lagging
- External and internal duct linings
- Flooring solutions
- Engine covers and engine room insulation
- Dust-free solutions for computer and food environments
Performance and protection
We stock in excess of 300 foam grades, including both Pyrosorb and Fireseal Class O rated PU foams and Basotect melamine foams in a wide range of densities and thicknesses.
Lightweight and flexible, all of our PU and melamine Class O foams offer a supreme level of fire retardancy as a result of their self-extinguishing properties and they neither melt nor drip when exposed to flames. In addition to this our range includes grades that are:
- Oil resistant
- Grease resistant
- Detergent resistant
- Chemical resistant
- Hydrolysis and moisture resistant, even in humid conditions
- CFC and HCFC free
