This was the first project to use Nullifire SC902 in Australia. With open construction and North Queensland’s tropical heat & wet weather conditions only Nullifire SC902 could offer water resistance within one hour off application. With torrential rains caused from Cyclone Ita & Cyclone Marcia in 2014 the client was extremely impressed with the water resistance capabilities of Nullifire SC902 he was sure the coatings would have washed off like vermiculite and would have to be reapplied causing lengthy delays in the building program and delaying hand over this did not occur.
Only Nullifire SC902 will remain and not wash off in rainy weather events.

Also carried out on the Townsville Hospital Project was the fire wrapping of cable & electrical trays, fire rating of ductwork & passive fire stopping.

The Use and Need for Penetration Sealing
In modern structures and buildings various specialised and technical installation services for power supply, computer and cable networks, transportation of water and sewage, and so on are installed as part of the build. Usually, these services penetrate fire separations in areas that are normally hidden away; above ceilings, through walls and other cavities. Because penetrations […]
What Makes a Good Fire Protection Coating?
As with all things in life, there are multiple opinions on what makes something good. When it comes to fire rating, there is no single treatment which everyone agrees on either. Some people focus on price, others on ease of application, others on suitability for conditions. And others again, on some combination of all these and more.
At Permax, we have our own beliefs, and we’re going to share them with you.
The Difference Between Engineers and Fire Engineers
Fun fact for your next trivia night: the term “engineer” derives from Medieval Latin and the word “ingeniare”, which means to design or devise. Ever since the wheel was invented (and even before that), humans have been devising clever inventions, designed to astound, improve, or carry out a function that too often we all take […]
