  • 3. 3 | P a g e Introduction This manual has been prepared to provide you with basic information for the application methods of Fire Security Systems FS11 and FS15 Cable Coating. Further, equipment recommendations and application suggestions are included to assist you and your project supervisor in proper preparation and execution of work. The objective of this manual is to explain the necessary components and methods to provide the required fire protection as specified by the owner or designer. It is your responsibility, as a competent and professional applicator, to apply the product in accordance with appropriate tests and in compliance with recommendations. It is important that you have full knowledge of our product(s) and its application methods in order to maintain our record of proven performance and consistent customer satisfaction. We urge your studied review of the information contained in this manual and the transmission of this same information to all personnel who will be involved in the application of Fire Security Systems’ Cable Coatings. As additional information is developed, it will be forwarded to you for as an addition. Should you desire additional copies, or should there be questions requiring clarification, please contact offices or your local representative. Why do cables have to be fire protected? Electrical cables themselves can be the cause of a fire (short-circuit, electrical overload, arcing). They allow the rapid spread of flame mainly in vertical cable shafts and can cause secondary fires. The rapid propagation of flame is the biggest risk in cable fires. Propagation rate is 20metres/ min (66ft/min) in vertical runs, that means 5 storeys/min. Insulating and jacketing of most cables used today consist of plastics; polyvinylchloride (PVC) contributes by the largest part, but plastics such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and others are used to lesser extents. PVC contains chlorine which in fire is emitted as hydrogen chloride. This gas is carried by the air through the entire building structure reaching parts which are not affected by heat or flames. This hydrogen chloride condensates after combining with water vapour to produce hydrochloric acid, which is deposited on all surfaces and may cause severe corrosive damage to metal surfaces, for instance in electrical or electronic installations and cement or concrete structure.
  • 4. 4 | P a g e Product Description FS11 FS11 Cable Coating is an interior water based, intumescent fire protective coating designed to enhance the fire resistance of electrical power, communication and control cables. It is commonly applied to continuous cable runs to prevent the propagation of fire. It is designed for labor saving spray applications on cables. With a DFT (Dry Film Thickness) of 1mm it is one of the lowest in the cable coating market. FS11 will also protect the integrity of the cable system for up to 90 minutes under IEC 60331-21 FS15 FS15 Cable Coating is an FM Approved, water-based, ablative fireproofing material especially developed for the fire protection of grouped or bundled electrical cables and penetration seals for interior or exterior applications. FS15 will also protect the integrity of the cable system for up to 90 minutes under IEC 60331-21.
  • 5. 5 | P a g e Equipment Recommendations Pumps 1. Graco Airless spray units such as King, Bulldog or similar units under Wiwa brand and for smaller applications Graco Merkur. Hoses • BlueMax II hoses of dimensions 3/8” and ¼” is used to connect the Airless spray pump with the gun. The hoses are fitted with 1 pc gun filter housing and 1 pc swivel for improved manoeuvrability at the gun. Spray Guns and Tips • Application is carried out by the use of a Graco Silver Plus Gun with a two finger trigger which provides the best gun control while spraying. This gun is fitted with a RAC 5 switch tip 317/325. This tip is fitted with a tip guard Rack 5 Handtite tip guard. *For application in difficult to reach areas we use Graco pole gun extensions to create different length pole guns. You should always have a range of tip sizes on hand at a job site since cable tray and single and grouped cable, hose length, vertical lift, and job site conditions all impact spray patterns.
  • 6. 6 | P a g e Spare parts and Accessories To reduce additional job application start-up or down time expenses due to equipment failure, the following spare parts and accessories are recommended: • Sufficient tools in the form of long handled screwdrivers, wrenches, hose clamps, etc. to allow for quick maintenance checks and repairs in the field. • Extra 50 ft. section of material hose. • Spare tips. • Sufficient supplies of empty pails to allow for cleaning of pump and material hose with water flushing. • A recommended spare parts kit as published by the pump manufacturer. • Spare material and air hose connectors (including swivel end connectors).
  • 7. 7 | P a g e Miscellaneous Equipment The following items are recommended for use or storage on the project for optimum job production: • Sufficient cover sheets and tape as well as non-absorbent masking cloths to prevent or minimize overspray on finished surfaces or equipment. • Movable scaffolding as required. • Barrel or drum handling equipment to facilitate moving of pails (if required). • Thickness measuring gauges to assure adequate wet and dry film thickness. • Extra brushes for touch up after spray completion. • Mechanical mixing of FS11 and FS15 is required to assure uniformity of blended ingredients and proper material viscosity. For best results, use of an air operated motor or electric mixer is recommended.
  • 8. 8 | P a g e Surface Preparation • FS11 and FS15 are designed to be applied over suitably prepared and cleaned cable(s). • A thorough cleaning of cables is not required. However, oil and grease should be removed with dry rags • (No solvent!). • Using a broom or vacuum cleaner to remove heavy layers of dust is sufficient.
  • 9. 9 | P a g e Airless Application Prior to spraying, FS11 and FS15 must be thoroughly mixed to a "smooth, creamy" consistency. WARNING! AIRLESS EQUIPMENT SHOULD ONLY BE USED BY TRAINED AND EXPERIENCED PERSONNEL Airless spraying Water Based • A material temperature of +5o C is recommended for optimal spraying behavior • If needed thinning with max. 3% of water • Recommended operating pressure: 200 - 250 bar • Recommended tip sizes: 0.023" – 0.027" • Approx. 1.4 mm wet = 1.00 mm dry = approx. 1.8 kg/m2 • Tip extensions with swivel ends can be used to reach inaccessible areas. Brushing • Brushing with standard or long-bristled brushes for touch up only. Drying Time At 20 o C object temperature and 65% relative humidity at least 24 hours between each coat. o Dust dry: approx. 3 hours o Touch dry: approx. 6 hours o Full cure: approx. 24 hours • Lower temperatures, higher relative humidity, insufficient air movement and different fire protection coating thicknesses can prolong drying time.
  • 10. 10 | P a g e Down Time and Clean Up When stopping work for a break, immerse the tip of the gun in water and cover the open drum to prevent the material from hardening. This will permit quick resumption of work without the need to clean the equipment. When stopping work overnight or longer, as well as when the job is completed, place the pump equipment in a container of water. Clean the pump of residual coating material using a brush or rag. Activate pump in order to cycle water, directing the material hose back into the can. When the pump and material hose are thoroughly clean cycle clean water through the pump to help prevent rusting. Disconnect the material line and remove the gun for hand cleaning.
  • 11. 11 | P a g e Important Application Procedures Cold Weather Application: FS11 and FS15 cannot be applied, below 5o C. Also the following important points should be noted: • FS11 and FS15 MUST be stored free from frost- preferably at a minimum of +5o C to a maximum of +30 o C
