Intumescent fire paint is a very specialised product which is applied to specially primed structural steel. In case of a fire, this paint expands to form a protective barrier around the steel member. Fire paint can provide up to a two hour protection. It is applied in a number of coats to achieve the specific thickness needed to provide the required duration of fire protection .
Monospray offers customers the option of having the intumescent coating applied either On-site or Off-site. The Off-Site application is undertaken either at the steel fabricator’s premises or at our facility. Using this approach ensures a high quality uniform finish. As the work is carried our Off-site a solvent based intumescent coating may be used. Solvent based intumescent coatings offer a higher quality of finish that the water based equivalents.
Fire paint can be applied both internally or externally in buildings and can have a decorative coat of paint applied over it. Additional information on the materials used is provided in the technical data sheets listed below.
