Fire Resistant Container (FRC)

Dupré Minerals Ltd have recently developed the Micashield FRBC (Fire Resistant Bulk Container). The Micashield FRBC is an innovative product that can be used to protect potentially flammable goods from the threat of fire.

The exceptional insulation properties of the Micashield FRBC allows for the safe storage and transportation of high value flammable goods, protecting from the threat of both internal and external fire spread. Under certain conditions, products such as Lithium Batteries have the potential to ‘short’ leading to ‘thermal runaway’, which poses a fire risk to the surrounding external environment if such Batteries are not stored appropriately.

The FRBC is therefore the perfect solution for safe storage and transportation of potentially combustible products such as recycled batteries, fireworks and other flammable chemical formulations such as Magnesium powder compounds. The FRBC acts as a thermal shield, reducing the threat of ignition from thermal conductivity in the event of an external fire. 

Awarded with a two hour integrity rating under BS476 parts 20/22, Micashield FRBC offers ‘peace of mind’. and is the only fire proof bulk container available on the market today.
