High-temperature fire protection
Targeted fire protection increases safety from failures on the one hand and leads to greater economic efficiency on the other. With tmax insulating cladding, temperatures of over 1000 °C can be reduced to as low as 60 °C.
Fire hazard in the engine compartment
Surface temperatures of up to 850 °C can occur in the engine compartments of machines and systems. The resulting risks of fire occurrence are very diverse. A frequent cause of fire is the leakage of flammable media. In addition, easily flammable dusts and oils can also ignite on the hot surfaces when harvesters are operated.
If a fire breaks out, it is not only human lives that are in serious danger. In the same way, such an event always means an enormous loss of material assets and productivity.
These risks can only be minimized through targeted temperature management.

Reduce fire risk, increase reliability
Optimal fire protection with tmax insulation cladding
With thermal insulation for hot surfaces and components such as turbochargers, exhaust pipes as well as manifolds, the surface temperature of all components can be reduced to below 200 °C; even down to 60 °C if required.
Fire protection for hydrogen applications
The future has a heat problem
And tmax has the solution.
In the future, hydrogen technology will play a major role not only in energy generation but also in industry and mobility. Fuel cell systems and hydrogen engines are used, for example, on ships, in trains, long-distance buses or trucks as part of the propulsion concept, as well as in combined heat and power systems to generate heat and electricity in buildings and industry.
Sometime, hydrogen technologies, which operate in the high-temperature range from 500 °C up to 1000 °C, are used. The heat that this generates can damage temperature-sensitive components and systems and consequently impair their functionality.
With high-temperature insulation from tmax, these systems are thermally insulated, and the high temperatures are thereby safely controlled.
Insulation solutions are mainly used for:
- High-temperature fuel cell systems (SOFC)
- Hydrogen internal combustion engines (HICE)
- Stationary fuel cell heating systems
- Hydrogen reformer technology (SOEC)
The proof: fire protection of the highest quality
tmax insulation cladding in thermography
With over 45 years of experience as a solution provider in high-temperature insulation, tmax has been able to build a sophisticated research laboratory. In this laboratory, we can prove that our products deliver what they promise by using the latest technologies and broad technical know-how. This includes thermography carried out with our own equipment, which clearly proves that the surface temperatures of temperature-sensitive components are protected from overheating.
Flammable deposits no longer catch fire. The reliability and cost-effectiveness of the machine are therefore increased.
High temperature insulation: no heat, no fire
