Ultimate fire protection: Fire retardant pipe jacket solution to bring lightweight, corrosion-free thermoplastic piping systems in essential applications onboard.

The demand for thermoplastic piping systems has grown considerably over the last few years. The lightweight, corrosion-free, and long-lasting alternative to traditional steel and metal piping systems is the ideal solution to increase the efficiency of cruise ships, merchant fleets, offshore platforms, and floating wind farms. Thanks to the newly developed Fire Retardant Pipe Jacket System HEAT-FIT, thermoplastic piping systems can be used for essential applications (L3) onboard.

The unique Pipe Jacket System HEAT-FIT copes with the strict fire resistance regulations of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and makes thermoplastic piping systems resistant to temperatures around 1.000°C for at least 30 minutes under pressure. The Pipe Jackets are made of durable and flexible materials and can sustain highly demanding marine industry conditions.
