Fire Protection Painting
Intumescent coatings are designed to expand when exposed to high levels of heat. This expansion retards the transfer of heat, giving up to four hours protection during a fire and greatly reducing the immediate impact of fire spread and heat damage. In structural steel this retardant quality helps to maintain the building’s load bearing abilities so preventing short term collapse or distortion.
Different applied thickness of intumescent coating will give varying thicknesses of ‘char’ and therefore differing time periods of fire resistance. The amount of applied intumescent required to give the specified period (usually 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes) is usually referred to as the ‘loading’ needed.
