Over the years FIREX™ coatings have been utilized in numerous applications requiring fire and thermal protection. Those applications include ships, tanks, military vehicles, shelters, aircraft, and space vehicles and are especially protective in a jet fuel environment. Now they are available for chemical, oil and gas, and other applications.

Pyrogenics FIREX™
The Pyrogenics Group is a technological leader in the realm of specialized fire and thermal protection coatings. Pyrogenics FIREX™ coatings have provided fire and thermal protection for personnel and property for over 30 years.

FIREX™ coatings are used to "buy time" ... critical time... for the containment and suppression of thermal threats to personnel, equipment, and structures. Our intumescent or ablative FIREX™ coatings, absorb and reject thermal energy in a controlled and predictable manner and are primarily intended for use in high risk environments such as the oil, gas, petrochemical and power generation industries.

Our products have a proven track record and are optimized to provide the highest level of performance in rapid temperature rise fires, retaining strength, with excellent adhesion even in the harshest of environments such as cellulosic type fires and hydrocarbon fires. These fires are caused by burning hydrocarbon fuels, such as petrol, diesel, petrochemicals and gases. These types of fires are characterized by a rapid and massive temperature increase as the fuel ignites that cause a high level of pressure (blast erosion), that typically destroys traditional thin-film intumescent coatings as well other typical structural steelwork fire protection.

FIREX™ coatings are used in numerous military and defense applications, including ships, tanks, military vehicles, as well as markets for agriculture, chemical, infrastructure such as buildings, airports, bridges, mining, oil and gas, power, pulp and paper, and waste industries.

In addition, we have teamed with the U.S. Army’s Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) to provide predictive modeling of applications based on our FIREX™ products which provide excellent test correlations. We can model the expected behavior of your application with our products and generate results to help guide your material selection process.
