Intumescent Paint Systems

Intumescent paints are either water or solvent based, and can provide up to 2 hours of fire protection. They can be applied by either a spray methodology or by a roller or brush. In addition to the intumescent coating there are a wide range of topcoat colours available to ensure all aesthetic needs and fire protection requirements can be achieved.
During a fire intumescent paints change their format from being a paint, that was applied to the steelwork, into an intumescent layer of carbonaceous char, which forms when the coating is subjected to heat.
