Protecting national infrastructure, private buildings or industrial facilities from accidental and/or intentional fire threats is a broad and challenging problem for the design and fire response community. Over the years several active and passive systems have been generated to achieve acceptable fire protection – each with their own limitations.

More recently a new challenge has been recognized in the need to protect bridge cables from fire concerns. This newly identified problem presented the fire protection community with two new compounding challenges – a harsh environment for a protection system to operate and a location with limited access.

DYMAT® has conducted an extensive R&D program and has developed a new product – DYMAT® FIREWRAPTM – the Fire Protection System (FPS) (*) – as an answer to the above challenging problems. DYMAT® FIREWRAPTM FPS is a composite product of several materials, taken from varies industries, optimized to achieve superior fire protection with long-term durability performance in harsh environments.  Developed to withstand wind, rain, sleet, snow, and cyclic temperatures and still perform in a fire, the FIREWRAPTM Fire Protection System, while originally developed for the bridge industry, has wide applications where fire protection is needed and required to perform in aggressive environments.

   TYPICAL USES

  • Bridge cables
  • Structural steel members (columns, beams, etc).
  • Refinery and chemical plant piping
  • Factory wall shielding

Chute Lining System

Apartments and condominiums around the world have chutes that extend down from one floor to the next. With time, the concrete or the material lining of the chutes begin to deteriorate.

The DYMAT® Chute Lining System is installed through inflating a fabric tube to create a liner without workers inside the shaft.

DYMAT®
Research & Development

DYMAT® was founded in 2012 by Edward R. Fyfe, the inventor of the disc bearing and innovator of fiber-reinforced polymers with more than 40 patents in the composite strengthening field, to enhance the characteristics of materials and products through resilience, performance and sustainability. DYMAT® is a research and development company, focused on bringing innovation to infrastructure.

DYMAT® Inc. has conducted an extensive R&D program and has developed a new product – DYMAT®FIREWRAPTM – the Fire Protection System (FPS) (*). DYMAT® FIREWRAPTM FPS is a composite product of several materials, taken from varies industries, optimized to achieve superior fire protection with long-term durability performance in harsh environments. Developed to withstand wind, rain, sleet, snow, and cyclic temperatures and still perform in a fire, the FIREWRAPTM Fire Protection System, while originally developed for the bridge industry, has wide applications where fire protection is needed and required to perform in aggressive environments.

At DYMAT® we devote to the development of science and thrive to embed this passion for technological advancement within the core culture of our company. DYMAT® is the culmination of many companies and a vast network of experience aimed at one goal: to develop dynamic materials and products to enhance structural performance.

For applications in refineries and other structures, the DYMAT® FIREWRAPTM Fire Protection System (FPS) is used as a fire retardant and heat insulation.

  • ­­­­Protects against flame
  • Low heat transfer
  • ­­­­Corrosion protection

 

The system is very durable. It comprises reliable solid sheets for excellent long-term performance as opposed to intumescent paint or spray-applied gypsum and other materials which may deteriorate with time and extended weather exposure. The system is engineered to resist flame and heat transfer, acting as a fire-resistant insulator all in one application, saving time and resources when compared to traditional insulation methods.

(*) The DYMAT® FIREWRAPTM Fire Protection System (FPS), is patent issued in the USA and many other countries.
