Passive Fireproofing - Internal & Trafficable Areas Applications
Vermitex® DX is a vermiculite-cement blend with trace chemical additives and polymer fibres formulated to provide passive fire protection to elements of building construction on a variety of backgrounds.
Vermitex® DX may be applied to interior steel, concrete and other substrates to enhance the Fire Resistance Level (FRL) of building and construction elements, and at the same time provide a more durable finish. Vermitex® DX provides increased resistance to mechanical abrasion, and is ideal for plant rooms and heavy traffic areas.
Vermitex® DX is manufactured under factory controlled conditions to ISO 9001-2008; ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001 Quality Standards. It is delivered to site in ‘batch’ form, ready to be mixed to the required consistency before application.
Health and Safety
Vermitex® DX contains no asbestos and presents no known health hazard before, during or after application. Normal precautions relevant to the handling of cement products apply.
Vermitex® DX has no long-term environmental impact on air, water or land. Both the product and the bag can be recycled or disposed of as landfill. When used as standalone or combined with Trimesh® to provide Acoustic and Fire protective engineering solutions, Vermitex® DX may positively influence any ‘Green’ rating system (i.e. LEEDs) from 36 percent to 51 percent.
