Ceram Polymerik Pty Ltd is an advanced technology company developing ceramifiable polymer materials for the $15 billion global passive fire protection market.
In 2013 Pacific Urethanes purchased Ceram Polymerik and is actively developing new and exciting applications for the technology.
The core technology evolved from research by the Cooperative Research Centre for Polymers. It has been successfully commercialised by Nexans (formerly Olex Cables) and sold under their trade name Alsecure® Premium Ceramifiable cable.
- The cable is flexible under normal conditions but forms a protective ceramic barrier when exposed to heat and fire. The cable is able to conduct electricity even after two hours at 1000º C.
- With more stringent fire regulations, materials incorporating Ceram Polymerik technology are able to replace existing fire barrier components thus providing a safer built environment. New and safer building systems are now possible with this new technology.
- Passive fire protection systems using this breakthrough technology offers added personal safety and a reduction in fire damage to buildings and their contents. This allows rescue and emergency services to undertake their work in a more controlled environment.
Ceram Polymerik is working with passive fire protection and building industry companies worldwide to develop the use of this new and exciting innovative technology.
The technology is covered by a number of patents. Ongoing research and development is being undertaken and further patents are expected to result in new ceramifying technology.

With Pacific Urethanes willingness to try and find a solution to our needs we are able to develop and manufacture high spec products for industries not dealt with before.
We see Pacific more as a partner than a supplier; they have been with us from the start and have grown with us along our journey from a start up right through to a fully commercialised business. We attribute a tremendous amount of our success to our relationship with Pacific.
Kaefer Novacoat have used the Pacific Urethanes Polyeuro 1050H product on a recent project in the Eastern Goldfields Western Australia. The project involved internal coating of 1 x Leach Tank 18.4m diameter x 20m high and 6 CIL tanks 17m diameter x 20m high. The process works also included coating of the launders, baffles and inlet pipework to a DFT of up to 3mm.
The product performed well for us during the application with full WFT/DFT achieved in one application with minimal rework required which assisted us to accelerate our component of the project for the client.
Matthew Slatyer and his team at Pacific Urethanes provided excellent support to us before and during the project.
I’ve dealt with many businesses in my 15 years with EFS and I have to say there’s something very special about the people and culture that you have there. They’re incredibly committed and dedicated to the business and always carry out their dealings with us in a professional and cheerful way.
