An intimate composite of uniquely developed and researched asbestos free inorganic mineral fiber combined with hydraulic cement and chemically inert fillers. CAT-9 cements combines with water to form a general purpose protective coating with self-setting properties as per IS9743 and BS3533.
Where additional mechanical strength is needed, the cement may be applied over wire netting, or expanded metal. Any pins or clips used to secure such reinforcement to the equipment should be turned down into close contact with the surface of insulation before the application of the cement.
