Successful Technical Seminar and Demonstration of MasterRoc FP 1350

On 29 January 2016, BASF Construction Chemicals (EB) Hong Kong successfully organised a Technical Seminar and Demonstration of MasterRoc FP 1350 at Courtyard by Marriott Shatin. The event has attracted many local tunnel contractors. Our guest speakers included Mr. Kenny Lo, Head of Infrastructure, Underground, BASF Construction Chemicals Asia Pacific and Mr. Frank Clement, Product Manager Membranes, Global Underground Construction, BASF and to answer all the questions raised by the attendants.

 

 

 

Under the Master Builders Solutions brand, BASF developed MasterRoc FP 1350 for the fire protection of underground structures. This unique cementitious thermal barrier can be spray applied or cast in-situ, and eliminates both explosive spalling and the structural deterioration of concrete and steel reinforcements during extreme heat events. MasterRoc’s high-performance cementitious fire protection coatings are ideal for both new tunnel construction and existing unprotected tunnel linings. With the ability to withstand thermal shock without losing strength, these protective barriers significantly reduce repair time and costs after tunnel fire.

The attendents also had an opportunity to look at the fire protection effect of MasterRoc FP 1350 at the demonstration site.
