Bulk Handling Grade

Tivar® 88 w. BurnGard™ Promotes Flow, Not Flames. The top choice for Bulk Material Handling applications where the possibility of hot spots or coal smouldering occurs and in stagnant coal environments.


Tivar® 88 w. BurnGard™ also known as Tivar® FlamEx, has flame retardant properties and should be used in applications where the liner might be exposed to combustion. A specially formulated grade of UHMW-PE combining the key characteristics of Tivar® 88 with the flame retardancy of additive BurnGard™, a flame retardant that will not fuel flames. When the source of the combustion is removed, Tivar® 88 w. BurnGard™ self-extinguishes and experiences no further impact. 


Tivar® 88 w. BurnGard™ meets MSHA 1C-112/1 (US Mines Health and Safety Administration) for underground mining and has a UL94 V-0 Flammability Rating with MHSA approval for use in chutes, hoppers, feeders and slider beds, as well as belt wipers and skirtboards - and having met the Underwriters Laboratories 94V-0 criteria in independent laboratory testing against the UL vertical burn test for classifying materials
