Fireproof paint for steel structures
Steel is widely used in building construction because of its durability and toughness. However, in the event a fire breaks out; It is not designed to take in the scorching heat of a fire. It can take only a few minutes for the steel to reach temperatures as high as 550 degrees celsius. It is at this point, that load-bearing capacity is compromised, leading to a potential structural collapse. As a matter of fact, the steel begins to lose strength when it reaches temperatures above 300 degrees celsius. This is why it is imperative to apply fireproof paint to a steel structure in your building.
Advantages of applying fireproof paint on steel structures:
It can provide fire protection for up to 120 minutes
Helps prevent structural collapse
Extends evacuation time
Gives firefighters more time to get the fire under control
Fireproof paint can be the difference between individuals evacuating in time or surviving a fire. Additionally, it also offers a time delay between the fire starting and spreading. The paint is a two-step system consisting of a solvent-based primary coat or water-based topcoat. It requires only one coat of paint. However, if you wish to increase the duration of fire resistance, you can apply another primary coat. They can provide protection for almost two hours if a fire breaks out. When it comes to our clients and business, we follow a professional and strict protocol to ensure you are satisfied with our service. For further enquiries, please speak to our team.
Intumescent Fireproof Painting
Intumescent fireproof painting is a reactive coating that expands because of it being exposed to heat in a controlled manner, thus increasing its volume and decreasing its density. Once exposed to heat, it swells to many times its original thickness and produces a carbonous char which is formed by a larger number of bubbles that are small and act as an insulating layer to protect the substrate. The significant benefit of intumescent paint is to prevent the structural collapse of the building, which can be caused by load-bearing due to the steel structure reaching a high temperature. Because steel structures are awfully light and have a high load-bearing capacity, they are the best alternative for the construction of stadiums, airports, office buildings, etc. The use of intumescent paint on steel structures drastically reduces the chances of a fire, including providing additional protection to the structure.
Cease Fire Solutions offers a wide selection of top-grade intumescent paints that are ideal for commercial, residential, and industrial premises. We can guarantee that all our fireproof paint products are certified, and highly capable of protecting steel and cast iron structures, as well as reducing the heating time of the metal.
Benefits of intumescent fire protection paint:
The paint forms a thin layer that prevents damage and deformation to the metal surface.
When exposed to high temperatures, the coating swells and expands multiple times, turning it into a reliable thermal barrier.
The film blocks access to oxygen, providing the surface with extra protection.
Gives it an attractive appearance.
Cementitious Fire Proof Painting
If a material has properties of cement, it is called "cementitious". It is an essential ingredient when making concrete, and it is one of the most commonly used materials in building construction, as, over time, it does not corrode. Also, the cementitious properties make it resistant to fire.
What is cementitious fireproof paint used on?
Cementitious fireproof paint can be used on most building materials, and can significantly improve the fire resistance of structural steel.
