Super-low Initial Expansion Temperature Expandable Graphite
ACS Material LLC is pleased to introduce a new family of Expandable Graphite (EG) products. Expandable Graphite has wide application as a fire-retardant additive in plastics, foams, wood products, putties and coatings. Two critical parameters apply to the utility of the product: expansion start temperature (EST) and the ratio of expansion. The EST is determined by measuring the volume of the sample as the ambient temperature is increased. When the volume reaches 1-1/2 times the originalvolume, the EST is determined. In many applications, the lowest possible EST is desirable to prevent the spread of fire.
Through extensive R&D, ACS Material has developed an Expandable Graphite with a super-low EST of 110°C. This is the lowest EST available in the commercial market.
ACS Material can also supply a series of expandable graphites with different start expansion temperatures (high up to 300°C), special surface properties, expansion volumes and expansion strengths.
