The solution for extreme fire protection requirements

BasaTexxFP - BT-900-1 M FR A2 - Einseitig beschichtetes Basaltgewebe
BasaTexxFP – BT-900-1 M FR A2 – Basalt fabric coated on one side

Are you looking for a material that can withstand very high temperatures and also serves as an insulator and compensator? Then BasaTexxFP is the right material for you.

What makes BasaTexxFP so unique?

The combination of several special features:

  • It does not burn (incombustible).
  • It is flexible like a conventional PVC tarpaulin.
  • In the event of flame exposure, no toxic gases are produced.
  • The material is 100% recyclable.

The material has a smooth, closed, waterproof, UV and chemically resistant surface and is flexible, light and ready to assemble. BasaTexxFP was developed by Fulcoline in cooperation with the Research Institute Leather & Plastics (FILK) and made ready for series production.


The lightweight composite material BasaTexxFP opens up new possibilities for the construction industry and industry when extreme fire protection requirements have to be met.

What are the advantages of BasaTexxFP?

BasaTexx is flexible and light and, in contrast to coated glass fabrics, does not pose any health risks. (Fabric fibers are not respirable and do not cause skin rashes and itching.)

  • Very high temperature resistance up to 1,200° (coated glass: max. 800°, melts and deforms)
  • 30% higher tear resistance compared to coated glass fabric of the same construction.
  • Minimum 30 years UV resistance (coated glass 5-10 years)
  • No toxic gases when exposed to flames compared to coated glass and other fabrics made from thermoplastics.
  • No carcinogenic fibers > 9µ (respirable fibers) compared to glass fabric.
  • Low terrestrial and aquatic ecotoxicity due to low chemical content compared to coated glass fabrics
  • Lower water consumption during production compared to coated glass fabrics
  • Lower proportion of volatile organic compounds (summer smog / ozone) compared to coated glass fabric (photochemical oxidants)

Examples of fire protection up to 1200 degrees

Possible uses of the BasaTexxFP tarpaulin

The properties of the base material basalt, in combination with a non-flammable elastomer coating, make BasaTexxFP a product where extreme fire protection requirements and safety standards have to be met.

  • Tent tarpaulins, covers for combustible substances and chemicals
  • Thermal protection for lithium-ion batteries, for example in the automotive and aircraft industries
  • As an insulator and compensator at high voltages, e.g. B. Transformer construction
  • Partition curtains and room dividers for sports halls, concert halls, public buildings (airports, train stations, etc.)
  • Biological wooden houses and buildings with high insulation, drywall
  • Lightweight construction, aircraft construction, shipbuilding, heavy industry
  • Household appliance technology, canteen kitchens
  • Dangerous goods transport and storage logistics Dangerous goods
  • EDP and server rooms as well as control cabinets and boiler rooms
  • Occupational safety for assistants
The BasaTexxFP tarpaulins are available in different weight classes, with different coatings, colors and finishes

Questions and answers about the BasaTexxFP tarpaulin

BasaTexx FP can be used as an insulator or compensator in the electrical or automotive industry. The material has the following electrical properties.

Dielectric strength (DIN IEC 243-2) = 23 kV/mm

Volume resistivity (DIN IEC 93) = 5×10-15 Wcm

Dielectric constant (50Hz) (DIN VDE 0303) = 3.1 kV/mm

Dielectric loss factor (50Hz) (DIN VDE 0303) = 30×10-4 tand

Tracking resistance (DIN 53 480) = KA 3 c

BasaTexx FP meets the requirements of building material class A2 – s1, d0 and can be used wherever these conditions and standards have to be met.

E.g. as wall and ceiling coverings, enclosures and covers.

Glass compared to BasaTexx FP:

Glass has lower strength and contains harmful chemical additives
Glass has a lower temperature resistance up to a maximum of 800°
Glass has poor chemical resistance to acids and alkalis and is sensitive to UV radiation.

Aramids compared to BasaTexx FP:

Burning aramids only have a temperature resistance of up to 300°
Aramids are not UV resistant and are also less resistant to alkalis and acids, but are lighter.
The price for aramids is about 5 times higher
Aramids have a significantly higher water absorption capacity.

Basalt vs Carbon:

Carbon is also flammable
Carbon is about 10 times more expensive, but is much lighter and has higher strength.

BasaTexx FP consists of an inorganic reinforcement with an elastomer coating.
