Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 is a spray applied, single package factory controlled premix, based on vermiculite and Portland cement.

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 produces a monolithic coating able to withstand thermal shocks experienced in a cellulosic fire. Concrete structures in particular, can be protected from explosive spalling when coated with Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2.

Although low in density, thus significantly reducing dead load, Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 is highly durable and will not crack or spall under mechanical impact.

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 is used for application to steel frames, metal floor or roof decks, and return air plenums. It may be easily removed and reinstated locally when additional fixings are required. Building types that benefit from the use of Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 include a wide range of educational, leisure and entertainment centres, commercial or industrial projects.

Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 may be applied within environments where limited exposure to the elements is likely throughout the building phase of the project, e.g. perimeter beams.
