According to Tizol, about 20 companies in Russia are specialised in manufacturing basalt super-thin fiber.
The correspondent from Ogneportal
A characteristic feature of the Russian products is that basalt super-thin fiber produced by different manufacturers offers the same properties when it comes to different fiber thicknesses.
However, the market sees a lot of product quality certificates issued by at present non-functional certification centers so only fire can detect the actual quality of fire protection. Also customers select materials by the price, not by the composition.
We have informed that the laboratory tests had proved that only three roofing pies of 40 submitted samples were fireproof. At the same time, all the materials applied for this purpose had a certificate of compliance with the fire safety class K0.
Manufacturers of fire-resistant materials want the current regulatory documents to be amended in order to solve the problem of inconsistency between the specified and actual properties.
