Sistemi per la protezione passiva del fuoco.
From the laboratory to the applicative situation, not only has Monokote® passed every type of experimental test at global level, it has also proven its effectiveness in real fires and blazes.
Even years after its application, and in particularly severe fire conditions, Monokote® has enabled buildings struck by fire to withstand collapse.

ASTM resistance test

Monokote® has undergone strict ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) tests and has respected and complied with all the performance-related parameters recommended in the following tests:
• resistance to penetration in the event of impact
• resistance to abrasion
• resistance to product shocks
• test to assess adhesion to support
• test to assess deformation of support
• test to assess air erosion
In each of these tests, Monokote® demonstrated excellent resistance to mechanical stress and optimal adhesion and cohesion to the structural support.

These characteristics ensure the building against even minimal accidents, detachments or lacerations of the fire-resistant plaster and guarantee the uniformity and effectiveness in time of the system of structure’s passive protection against fire.
