    An intumescent coating for steel and aluminium protection

    Intumescent Steel Paint for structural steel and cast iron

    A water-based intumescent coating for the protection of steel and aluminium. Has a smooth finish which can be easily painted over with any good quality paint for decorative purposes. Can be easily applied to surfaces by brush, roller or spray.

    Unprotected steel can lead to building construction collapsing in 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 and the structure is likely to collapse, 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 and the Envirograf® range of intumescent coatings can certainly stand the heat. As modern design often involves steel being expressed as an architectural feature, intumescent coatings are frequently the protection of choice.

    EP/FS/INT offers up to and including 90 minutes of fire protection and can be applied both on and off site.

    EP/FS/INT is a waterborne product with low odour, often chosen as the ideal solution for on-site application. A full range of top sealers, both waterborne and solvent based are also available to complement the intumescent coating.

      We’ve tested our intumescent steel paint to address the popular question of the feasibility of painting the Product 83 over the existing coats of paint on top of the steelwork.

      The test was carried out on two equal pieces of I-beam. Both specimens were coated with 8 coats of standard paint, after which, one of them was coated with Product 83 (Including EP/FS/60P Primer). The test lasted for 150 minutes.

      After the test was stopped and the charred intumescent was brushed off, we discovered that the original coatings remained unscathed.

      Since the date of this test, Product 83 has enjoyed great popularity among factories, public buildings and businesses alike
