Kemwell FPL Fireplace Lining Calcium Silicate Board

A1 Non-combustible high Performance, dimensionally stable, fire resistant building board for stove wall and fireplace linings

Kemwell FPL is a safe reliable and robust chimney breast lining system for cassette and inset type fireplaces and stoves.

It has been developed to resist continuous high temperatures of up to 1000°C.

It is strong, lightweight and non-combustible calcium silicate building board for use in many fire-resisting applications. Kemwell FPL has excellent mechanical strength, which can resist continuous high temperatures.

The boards are designed so that there is minimal expansion and contraction during and after heating, reducing the risk of cracking, and their high thermal storage capacity ensures heat is evenly distributed within a room.

The system includes various components, including boards, calcium silicate studs, glue, joint filler and primer.

Kemwell FPL is designed specifically to comply with Building Regulations Part J (Combustion Appliances and Fuel Storage Systems), providing homeowners, architects, developers, and contractors with adaptability and performance benefits to enable safe and innovative designs in the home.

You can specify Kemwell FPL with confidence.

FEATURES

Fire Resistance

Kemwell FPL boards can resist continuous high temperatures of up to 1000°C. Kemwell FPL is designed specifically to comply with Building Regulations Part J (Combustion Appliances and Fuel Storage Systems).

Moisture Resistant

Board will not deteriorate when used in damp or humid conditions and will not encourage mould growth. The boards are also rot proof. Performance characteristics are not degraded by age or moisture.

Vermin Resistant

Boards remain unaffected by rodent, termite and insect attack.

Insulation

Boards have a high Insulation performance and will resist continuous high temperatures of up to 1000°C. Their thermal conductivity is rated (approximately) at 20°C W/mK. This reduces heat loss and allows emitted heat to be distributed evenly within the room.

Easy Workability

Boards are quick and easy to install and can be cut with traditional woodworking equipment and installed using standard fixings and Kemwell approved glue.

Chemical Stability

Kemwell FPL is a chemically inert calcium silicate board, unaffected by contact with most chemicals and resistant to dilute acids and alkalis. Boards do not contain any bonding agents, which could emit irritating odours or affect the adhesion to the board in a negative way.

Smooth Surface

Kemwell FPL has a smooth finish. If plastering or wallpapering is required, the board should be fully sealed using an inorganic primer suitable for use at elevated temperatures. Kemwell FPL can be decorated using silicate based paints, prior to painting the boards should be sealed using an inorganic primer.

Durability

Kemwell FPL boards are made of calcium silicate and cement, providing very strong walls. Due to minimal expansion and contraction during and after heating, the risks of cracks, microscopic fissures or deformation is reduced to an absolute minimum.
