KBS CABLE PROTECTION™ provides a great margin of safety for electrical cables. Exceeds the propagation fire class F4A [ EN 60332-3-22] . It even managed to classify (F4A) for the absolute largest high voltage cables with highly flammable crosslinked PE insulations (XLPE). This quite unique and no other cable coatings comes close. The system is also passad 90 minutes integrity test according IEC 60331-21 (1125°C).  KBS CABLE PROTECTION™ based on the special cable coating Flamastic KBS COATING™ containing a fire technology that are specially formulated to consuming energy when exposed to fire, cooling the surface and starving the fire of oxygen. The ablative composition in Flamastic KBS COATING™ works "endothermic" and the process push oxygen away from the surface, dilute flammable gases preventing them from burning and interrupt the "chain reaction" of fire chemically. This, in turn provides time to fight the fire, and protects the circuit integrity of redundant and emergency systems. Flame propagation along the cables outside the fire area is prevented with this system.

Flamastic KBS COATING™ is easily applied by conventional methods such as spray and brush. For the most application as cable protection the thickness is approx. 1.5 mm. This system is also a technology for up-grading of existing fire protection on cable trays and conduits and have form the standards for fire protection of power cables in heavy industrial applications such as paper mills, steel and nuclear utility plants.

KBS CABLE PROTECTION™ is recommended for all strategically important power supplies on both low and high voltage side. The shield is also tested for seismic impact and radioactive radiation. (The system is recommended by the nuclear industry, among others). It is not affecting the current carrying capacity so ampacity Derating is not necessary.
