COMFIRE® Marine Fireproof Technologies

  • COMFIRE® : Marine Fireproof Panels


    Marine Systems Technology (MST) originally developed COMFIRE® for marine applications, believing that the COMFIRE® marine fireproof technology would be an ideal way to meet newly imposed (and very stringent) safety requirements for new vessels. A fire-proof material, COMFIRE® is also non-carcinogenic and can be recycled. 

    Noncombustible Fireproof Product

    By combining these complementing attributes with stability in water, good acoustic attenuation, and a weight advantage over current materials, COMFIRE® is a world leading product that complies with the tightest safety guidelines and offers many practical advantages to the ship and oil platform designer.

    As COMFIRE® has been utilized and tested, it has become clear that Marine Systems Technology (MST) developed an ideal solution for anytime a lightweight, non-combustible product would be advantageous.

    COMFIRE® can be delivered in a wide variety of applications, including panels, molded forms as well as modular systems to meet your specific needs.

Lithium-Ion Battery Fire Protection

Lithium-Ion Battery Lockers

The Lithium-Ion Battery Charging and Storage Locker was designed to house and store a variety of Lithium-Ion aircraft batteries of various types, sizes, and shapes. Two tests were conducted for this qualification: 75 minutes at an average of 80 kW heat flux, and a further extreme ‘overtest’ for 8 minutes at an average 207 kW heat flux.

The system exceeded expectations at 80 kW and again at 207 kW, which is >250% above the average heat flux the Li-ion battery can generate under ‘Heat Excursion’ conditions. The temperature in the other adjacent compartments only reached 19.5°C (67°F) at the highest point during the first test.  The 2nd ‘overtest’ again revealed excellent thermal properties with the maximum temperature of 33°C (91°F) recorded in adjacent compartments – some 82°C (180°F) below the test acceptance criteria.
The outside of the cabinet was cool to the touch during testing and the system remained fully functional post-test.
