What are Intumescent Coatings?

Intumescent Coatings remain stable at ambient temperatures and look much like any regular coating once applied. In a fire situation however the increase in temperature causes a chemical reaction in the coatings. They swell when exposed to heat and the resulting increase in density creates a protective barrier against fire.

Intumescent coatings are vital in fire protection of structural components such as steel and concrete. Columns, joists and beams are all key to maintaining a building or vehicles integrity, especially in the event of fire. The capacity of fire protection depends on the type of intumescent coating.

Intumescent coatings now cover a wide range of structural sections. They include rigid steel joists, columns, concrete filled tubes and circular or rectangular hollowed sections. It is possible to protect people for up to three hours after the outbreak of fire, depending on the type of intumescent coating in use.
