  • Patent number: 4048363
    Abstract: At least two similar sheets of intumescent sheet material one of which is coated with adhesive on one face are adhered with an offset and with liner paper covering the exposed adhesive covered layer of the offset. Dimensions are made so that the laminate can be conformably wrapped around a ceramic monolith, the liner removed and the ends of the two laminate adhered. This provides ease of insertion of ceramic monoliths in coverings and after heating expansion of the intumescent material secures the monolith in the covering.
