Intumescent Paint Coatings
Intumescent paint coatings are water or solvent-based paints that are applied to the exposed and semi/exposed steel of a building to provide protection to the steel in event of a fire. These coatings can be Spray applied or applied by Brush or Roller and our work is undertaken on site. A Primer coat is applied prior to the application of the intumescent paint and a Topcoat is applied in the required finish to match into the building’s design and colour.
Intumescent paint coatings, when applied as per the manufacturer’s fire rating recommendations, can provide a burning time of 30 mins to 2hrs depending on the legal requirement of the building.
Intumescent paints work in the event of a fire by expanding and producing a Char this will protect the steel under high temperatures enabling the fire to be brought under control before it damages the structural integrity of the building.
