SmartRoc is an inorganic, asbestos free, vermiculite-based material, which can be applied by spray and approved by the Fire Safety Bureau of
Singapore. It provides both a protective and a decorative finish. It is extremely stable and can be applied to virtually all building materials with excellent bonding. Its unique chemical composition and physical characteristics enable it to exhibit a large number of properties which in turn make it highly suitable for a wide applications. Stringent tests have been conducted by authorized, independent laboratories.
The ingredients of SmartRoc surfacing material combine to provide a passive protection from fire. Its strong adhesion to metal makes it an excellent, simple and inexpensive fire-resisting covering to structural steel members eliminating the need for the normal 50mm of reinforced concrete. Application is sped up with continuous spraying machines available today. Fire test on SmartRoc conforms to BS/UL standards. A complete list is available. The thickness of SmartRoc ranging from 6mm to 70mm is determined by the duration of fire protection required (fire rating), determined by the ratio of perimeter of exposed section to the cross-sectional area of the steel member (Hp/A) suitable for profile or box/solid protection is applied.
