How does intumescent paint work?

An intumescent coating is basically a paint-like material which is inert at low temperatures – under 200 ◦C – but reacts with heat. As the temperature rises, during a fire event, the intumescent coating swells and forms a char layer that covers the steel.

Unprotected steel can lead to building construction collapsing in the event of a fire.

It can take just a few minutes for unprotected steelwork in a building to attain temperatures of around 550ºC in a fire. At this temperature, steelwork loses its load bearing capacity to with stand hte heat and the structure is likely to collapse and bend, giving little time for people to evacuate and even less time for the fire service to bring the fire under control.

  • Building regulations and legislation demand fire protection to upgrade the fire resistance of buildings
  • Selection of waterborne and solvent based are also available to complement the intumescent coating spray.
