Bespoke Products

We offer a wide range of products and, generally, customers have no difficulty finding what they are looking for.  However, there are times when adjustments are needed to suit a customer’s unique requirements.  We are happy to do just that, having the expertise, equipment and materials needed.  We have  designed heat shields and systems to F1 teams, JCB, Massey Ferguson and more, so if you are looking for a solution tailored to your needs or would like help or advice with a design project, our expert designers will work with you to provide the perfect bespoke product.  You can be assured that complete confidentiality is maintained at all times.

FCL Protect-a-Pad

Made of high quality body soluble felt and fire resistant silica cloth, the FCL Protect-a-Pad provides insulation to prevent damage to paper, paints, plastic and other materials when using a brazing torch.  The low thermal conductivity of the materials used in the pad means that heat is reflected rather than transferred.  It’s quick to cool down with only approximately 20 seconds cooling time required after normal brazing operations, after which the pad can be easily moved by hand, if required.   See our website for more information about the FCL Protect-a-Pad.

Intumescent Sealant

When a flexible sealing solution is needed to fill gaps and movement joints, Lorient Intumescent Sealant is ideal.  The sealant expands when exposed to fire, thereby producing a hot smoke seal.  However, it remains flexible in day to day use, allowing movement and flexibility where it is required.  The sealant can also contain sound.  Providing a high level of safety, the sealant is fire tested in accordance with BS476 Pt. 20:1987.  More information is available on our website.

FCL 100 Coating

FCL 100 Coating is hard yet flexible and resistant to both oil and water.  A 500 hours salt spray test resulting in minimal failure illustrates the durability of this coating, which is based on a water based vinyl acrylic copolymer.  The FCL 100 Coating is environmentally friendly, having low levels of toxicity and fume emission and being solvent free.  The coating carries Lloyd’s Register of Shipping BS467 parts 6 and 7 Certification, as well as other certifications, and is capable of Class 0 surface spread of flame.  Find out more on our website.

FCL 007 Adhesive

The FCL 007 water based adhesive can withstand temperatures up to 1000° C in its dry form, making it ideal for use as a high temperature adhesive for ceramic fire blanket, paper and board.  It is perfect for use in high temperature in laminates and for bonding most high temperature substrates.  The FCL 007 Adhesive is environmentally friendly and solvent free.  There is no need to pre-treat the surfaces prior to adhering and the FCL 007 can be easily applied by brush or by spray.  A slow drying time allows fitters to make adjustments as necessary.  Visit our website for more details.
