Cryogenic spill protection tile system launched

LNG Industry,

Advanced Insulation has launched ContraFlame® CSP & PFP, a fire-rated cryogenic spill protection tile system, which has been designed to support rapid application during construction or offshore retrofit projects.


This new modular, multi-functional tile system provides integrated thermal insulation and passive fire protection to J60 or H120 IMO classifications, and thermal insulation for decks exposed to cryogenic spill.

Thermal insulation

ContraFlame CSP phenolic or polyester fiberglass-reinforced tiles are filled with Advanced Insulation’s ContraFlame C50 thermal insulation material. The micro-cellular structure of C50’s syntactic foam is derived from lightweight additives rather than through blowing agents, which creates a closed-cell structure that is unaffected by water even when fully immersed.

FLNG projects

The ContraFlame CSP is perfect for internal and vertical panelling use on floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) projects. It has been tested for cryogenic spills of LNG at temperatures of -164°C for 2 hours and 50 minutes which, during tests, limited the back face temperature of the steel to -28°C.


Each tile is 0.5 m x 1.0 m in dimension, 34mm thick and weighs 16 kg. They are also water-resistant and can withstand chemical or acid spills. The tiles are designed for continuous use at operating temperatures from -40°C to +150°C and are tested to withstand thermal shock to -196°C in LIN spillage conditions. ContraFlame CSP also prevents corrosion under insulation (CUI) and provides superior physical performance for creep and fatigue in the marine environment.


ContraFlame CSP systems are made-to-order to meet individual design requirements. Being a dry-fit system with removable sections, the tiles are quick and easy to apply, requiring only adhesive bonding to fix the tiles to a primed deck.
