New Product Announcement: PFP Hydrocarbon Coating


Marine and protective coatings company Jotun recently launched a new intumescent hydrocarbon passive fire protection coating for oil, gas and energy industry assets.

Jotachar JF750 XT reportedly provides certified all-climate performance, following five years of extensive internal and third-party testing. This included real world exposure including environments at Jotun’s Svalbard Arctic testing station, in addition to harsh desert and sub-tropical conditions at Jotun’s Middle East and Asia test facilities.

The patent-pending technology is highly flexible but is combined with certified durability to latest NORSOK M501 (2022) and UL2431 test regimes, without the need for an additional topcoat. Jotachar JF750 XT also reportedly complies fully with the industry’s most stringent requirements.

According to the release, Jotachar JF750 XT is third-party-tested and certified to key industry fire and cryogenic spill protection standards, including listing to UL1709 in addition to Lloyds Register and DNV Type Approvals for pool fire, jet fire and cryogenic spill protection.

“Oil, gas and petrochemical companies are increasingly investing in facilities located or constructed in some of the world’s most challenging environments,” said Andy Czainski, Global Category Manager – Hydrocarbon Fire, Jotun Performance Coatings.

“They need to be confident that their assets will have certified protection in the event of fire or cryogenic spill in such harsh conditions. Jotachar JF750 XT’s proven all-climate performance means owners, engineers and fabricators can be confident that assets are protected, at any stage of their project, even during exposure to some of the most extreme conditions on the planet.”

Additionally, the coating reportedly features low installed thickness combined with the advantage of mesh free application. The risk of asset damage during construction, lifting and commissioning is also minimized due to the self-reinforced flexible binder technology.

Jotun held a launch broadcast to explain the benefits of the new coating when exposed to extreme environments, as well as the research, development and testing of the product. The video can be found here.
