SpreFix™ is used for multifunctional insulation purposes by demanding customers around the world.
The safety and comfort required in today’s shipping industry calls for first class fire protection as well as thermal insulation, condensation control and sound reduction: All unaffected by stormy weather or by the vibrations from ship engines or propellers.
In South Korea, Ti Marine Contracting provides complete professional insulation services to major shipbuilders in the region. The success of SpreFix™ in the Korean market has resulted in a large number of major contracts with leading ship owners and operators.
Imagine the foods and other sensitive goods rushed from the warmth of Spain or Italy to the wintry coldness of Russia. Or an enjoyable ride in a safe, comfortable train car, efficiently shielded from the noise and vibrations of the train at full speed. These are only some of the challenges encountered by our customers – and our insulation solution – in the railway business.
In several European countries thousands of train cars have been insulated , using our spray-on system. This includes new cars as well as old cars renovated to modern standards.
In Dubai 40,000 m2 of SpreFix™ insulation was applied to the walls and ceilings of the King Faisal Mosque to improve the acoustics. This was prescribed by the architect to enhance acoustics during religious services.
Statoil, the Norwegian petroleum company, asked us to secure the safety and comfort on a number of oil rigs in the North Sea. Fire hazards and extreme weather conditions are just two of the challenges encountered on oil rigs and other offshore installations. A typical platform is also the home and workplace of hundreds of people. All workshops, offices and living quarters must be shielded from the intense noise and vibrations caused by the huge drilling equipment.
SpreFix™ multi-function insulation provides fire protection as well as thermal insulation, humidity control and sound reduction. Our broad experience includes large passenger halls in airports, offices, central warehouses, schools, restaurants, breweries and bakeries, to name a few.
Effective thermal insulation is increasingly important to reduce energy consumption and environmental load. The SpreFix™ method effectively eliminates the risk of corrosion caused by humidity traps between the insulation layer and the underlying steel surface (and rot, in wooden constructions). Sound reduction is often required to ensure acceptable working conditions and to avoid health hazards in, for example, heavy industry.
The wool is white (SpreFix™ G) or light grey (SpreFix™ S) with an attractive structure. It can be easily applied onto domes, curved ceilings, uneven and other challenging surfaces.
The surface can be kept as is or spray-painted in any colour. For increased resistance and easy cleaning it can be sprayed with SpreFix™ Seal (In Korea: “LPO”), even outdoors! Alternatively, it can be covered with a special fibre glass fabric or cloth.
As shown in these examples there are virtually no limits to what you can do with SpreFix™.
