GRE piping needs protection from fires. Therefore, Favuseal has developed ultra-thin fire protection solutions especially for GRE pipes that fulfil the most rigorous industry standards for various fire classes.
It uses the Favuseal X3M system, a completely dry system and does not require any solvents, electricity, or any tedious curing processes and thus significantly contributes to lowering the overall cost of the installed solution compared to other competing systems.

Extreme Protection with Extreme Precision
The FFBS X3M system consists of two main elements — Favuseal Wrap-On and the Favuseal X3M mat.
Our FFBS X3M system has been developed to protect glass-reinforced plastic/epoxy (GRP/GRE) piping in the offshore industry. It meets the high standards for fire classes defined by IMO, such as jet fires according to ISO-22899-1 (250-300 kW/m2) or hydrocarbon fire according to EN-1363-2 or UL-1709 fire curve (200 kW/m2), namely IMO L2 and L2W, or any modified L3 or standard L3 requirements.
Favuseal NKX-6174 is a thermoplastic compound containing inorganic fillers composed of an ethylene copolymer. It is exceedingly flexible, and when extruded, allowing for simple wrapping onto pipe designs or delivery of pre-fabricated spools to various destinations from installation sites around the world.
Favuseal X3M Mat (400 series)
The Favuseal X3M series super insulation mat is a thin, flexible, easy-to-cut super insulation and cost-effective mat that outperforms traditional fiber-based insulation materials. At the same time, it avoids the health risks associated with them. In addition, it addresses the shortcomings of other aerogel mats.
Its applications stand for:
- Super insulation thermal properties applied to steel or GRE pipework or in fireboxes
- Thermal hydrophobic barrier used on a stand-alone basis or together with Favuseal Wrap-On for combination classes
