Palusol® – The Innovative Solution for Intelligent Fire Protection

The silicate-based fire-protection panels developed by BASF have proven their reliability a million times for more than 50 years.

Advantages of Palusol® and Palusol® SW

  • High level of fire resistance combined with smoke, sound and/or thermal protection

  • Low response temperature and short reaction time

  • Minimal component thickness, i.e. low costs of construction and manufacturing combined with greater aesthetic design possibilities

  • Preconfigured fire protection door cores allow savings on cost and work intensive process steps

  • Certification of products and components ensures high quality standards and allows access to free licences

For more than 50 years, Palusol® panels provide improved fire protection in public and private buildings. Main applications are fire doors, bulkheads and security cabinets.

Palusol® fire-protection panels are classified as non-combustible building material. In case of fire, the silicate panel expands under the action of heat with generation of foaming pressure. The non-combustible, heat-insulating and pressure-resistant foam prevents fire and smoke from spreading to other rooms for a given period of time by filling joints and gaps. During this process, heat is reduced by evaporating water, thus producing an additional cooling effect. Palusol® is employed in fire-protection doors and glazing as well as in fireproof bulkheads for pipes, cables or ventilation elements.

Palusol® SW is a ready-made sandwich product composed of Palusol fire-protection panels and high-density fiberboards. The different combination and sequence of the individual layers create a torsion-resistant, flame retardant panel specially developed for the manufacture of fire doors and for use in fire walls.

Technical and Safety Information on Palusol® and Palusol® SW

Applications of Palusol® and Palusol® SW

Palusol® is applied in the area of fire-protection. Fire doors and glazing as well as in fireproof bulkheads for pipes, cables or ventilation elements prevent fire and smoke from spreading to other rooms for a given period of time. There are also many more potential applications for Palusol fireboard panels, each resulting from efforts to develop functional constructions to prevent or restrict the spread of fire and smoke.
