Following the success of Jotachar JF750 revolutionary mesh-free epoxy passive fire protection coating, Jotun recently introduced Jotachar 1709, a mesh free epoxy developed specifically for the hydrocarbon processing & energy industries.
Jotachar 1709 has been developed using the revolutionary technology platform behind Jotun’s successful Jotachar JF750. Jotachar JF750 continues to be embraced by the offshore and onshore industries as an alternative to traditional mesh containing solutions for hydrocarbon pool and jet fire scenarios. Jotachar JF750 is the preferred solution for operators and installers who wish to remove risks associated with incorrect mesh installation, whilst benefitting from significant reductions in installation time.
Jotachar 1709 has been specifically designed to protect steel against hydrocarbon pool fire scenarios for up to four hours, as defined within the ANSI/UL1709 Standard. Operators also benefit from long term corrosion protection, reduced life-cycle costs and the elimination of any risk associated with mesh installation errors.
