Intumescent Paint For Fire Proofing
FG Fegan specialise in a comprehensive range of structural fire retardant solutions including Intumescent Coatings for steel and other applications. Intumescent paint is a fast method of providing 30 – 120 minutes fire protection to structural steel alone.
Intumescent paint can be used in conjunction with other fire protection systems however due to the nature of it’s activation care must be taken with it’s application. The key feature of intumescent coatings is that they expand significantly when exposed to high temperatures, such as those found in a fire. As the product expands it becomes much less dense, which makes it act as in insulator that keeps the high temperatures away from structural members or protected openings.
