Fireproofing – Intumescent Paint
Intumescent Paint for decorative fire protection solutions to Structural Steel. Independently tested and approved to BS476: Part 21 for up to 2 hours fire protection. The water based product has low VOC and environmental friendly for use in all construction requirements.
With increasing demand for steel frame buildings across the globe combined with ever changing and revolutionary building designs, the need for a versatile range of coatings that can provide both long term protection against corrosion and fire has never been more relevant.
Intumescent coating keeps the structural steel below critical steel temperature during a fire. A steel section that reaches its critical steel temperature will begin to deform and affect the structural integrity of a building. Intumescent protection keeps the structural steel in a building safe, for a period up to 2 hours in the event of a fire. When exposed to extreme heat, the intumescent will foam and char up to protect the steel.
Intumescent finishing can be used as an aesthetic feature of the design whilst providing a competitive solution to meet with stringent fire protection requirements.
