Data Sheet H/F/C-4

Mandolite 990 is a spray or trowel applied, epoxy based intumescent compound which, when subjected to fire, expands to form an insulating barrier. barrire isolante. Mandolite 990 produces a monolithic coating able to withstand the thermal shocks experienced in high intensity hydrocarbon fuelled fires, particularly jet fires. Although the added applied weight to a structure is low, Mandolite 990 is very durable, with high impact and weather resistance. Mandolite 990 is used for application on offshore steel or concrete structures, storage vessels and supports, risers, ESDVs and pipework. It is also used on pre-assembled units prior to transportation to site as well as to structures fire proofed after site erection.
Oil and gas installation protected with Mandolite 990.

The offshore oil and gas industries will benefit from the use of Mandolite 990.

Structures protected with Mandolite 990 have undergone fire resistance tests in approved independent laboratories to recognised standards. The fire response of Passive Fire Protection materials (PFPs) is assessed in fire tests that are intended to represent the effects of real fires, either hydrocarbon pool or jet. In addition, PFP systems may be required to provide the following requirements: 1. protection against high momentum jet fires 2. resistance to blast/explosion overpressures. The ratings for PFP systems are based on furnace tests carried out to the requirements of: BS 467: Part 20: 1987 (Appendix D Hydrocarbon Curve) ISO/DIS 834 Proposal DEN/NPD Interim Standard. The Mandolite 990 System has been fully tested and has fire approval certification for structures and fire resisting divisions. Moreover, the system has demonstrated a favourable response to jet fires and resistance to blast.

Fire protection thickness

General considerations
The fire protection requirement is often detailed in the owners operators standard and/or project specification. Product thickness calculations can be provided by Cafco International.

Typical substrates Substrate preparation
Primed steel, galvanised/metalised steel, concrete structures, divisions and vessels. To ensure optimal durability and corrosion performance, surfaces to be coated must be properly prepared and primed with a suitable primer. Client company standards may form the outline specification. It is the responsibility of the application contractor to confirm compatibility and suitability of the primer system. Cafco International should be consulted for confirmation of compatibility and suitability.

Mesh retention

Fire tests conducted have been carried out with mesh reinforcement, to demonstrate the abiity of Mandolite 990 to stay in place under the most severe fire conditions. Mesh retention may be based on one of the following options: 1. Metal mesh 2. Fabric mesh. 2

Application of Mandolite 990 must be carried out by an applicator recognised by Cafco International and applied in accordance with the Application Manual available from Cafco International. Apply Mandolite 990 by a spraying machine approved by Cafco International.


Mandolite 990 can be applied in a wide range of ambient conditions. Minimum air and substrate temperatures is 8C. Substrate temperature should be at least 3C above dewpoint temperature.

General considerations
A topcoat is always specified for offshore facilities. For example, one coat acrylic polyurethane (50 microns) or epoxy and chlorinated rubber paint may also be used.
