Palusol® – The Innovative Solution for Intelligent Fire Protection
The silicate-based fire-protection panels developed by BASF have proven their reliability a million times for more than 50 years.
Advantages of Palusol® and Palusol® SW
High level of fire resistance combined with smoke, sound and/or thermal protection
Low response temperature and short reaction time
Minimal component thickness, i.e. low costs of construction and manufacturing combined with greater aesthetic design possibilities
Preconfigured fire protection door cores allow savings on cost and work intensive process steps
Certification of products and components ensures high quality standards and allows access to free licences
For more than 50 years, Palusol® panels provide improved fire protection in public and private buildings. Main applications are fire doors, bulkheads and security cabinets.
Palusol® fire-protection panels are classified as non-combustible building material. In case of fire, the silicate panel expands under the action of heat with generation of foaming pressure. The non-combustible, heat-insulating and pressure-resistant foam prevents fire and smoke from spreading to other rooms for a given period of time by filling joints and gaps. During this process, heat is reduced by evaporating water, thus producing an additional cooling effect. Palusol® is employed in fire-protection doors and glazing as well as in fireproof bulkheads for pipes, cables or ventilation elements.
Palusol® SW is a ready-made sandwich product composed of Palusol fire-protection panels and high-density fiberboards.
