DATA SHEET - STEEL FIRE PAINT

DESCRIPTION AND USE

Intumescent paint for primed or previously painted Steel and other metals, or for surfaces where the surface spread of flame, or fire propagation, need to be controlled. Intumescent Paints fire proof steel by insulating the metal from heat for a tested minimum period.

INTUMESCENT FIRE PROTECTION

When exposed to a fire Thermo Steel Paint expands to create a fire resilient barrier, insulating and protecting the Steel surfaces from heat and the oxygen required for fire.

TO SPECIFY

Prepare and apply Intumescent Steel Paint to achieve 30 minutes or 60 minutes fire protection.

Apply Flame Paint top coat (in matt, gloss, eggshell, vinyl silk or metallic finish) according to Manufacturer's instructions, if the surfaces are to be exposed to view or subject to high humidity.

FIRE TESTING

Assessment is based upon certified fire tests at the Faverdale Technology Centre and Fire Research Centre (Fire Test Laboratories) to BS476 Part 21 - Fire Resistance of loadbearing elements of structure for 30 mins., 60mins., 90mins. and 120 mins.

FIRE CERTIFICATION

We will issue a Certificate of Supply upon request for each project for Insurance, Fire and Building Control Authority and Client Records.

FINISH AND COLOUR RANGE

Intumescent Steel Paint is overcoated with the following decorative finishes:

Flame Paint - top coatings:

Gloss, Eggshell, Vinyl Silk, Acrylic Eggshell - all BS and RAL Colours. For a RAL Colour Chart Click Here.

Anti-graffiti system - most BS4800 colours.

Metallic Finishes - steel, gunmetal, rust, silver, gold.

COVERAGE

According to the Steel HpA Tables - 30 minutes and 60 minutes - from 300 microns wet to 3000 microns wet, depending on the dimensions and the thickness of the steel. Ask us to calculate the coating thicknesses and volumes required.

APPLICATION

Must be applied over a suitable, corrosion resistant metal primer at least 150 microns (wet), 75 microns (dry), to prevent flash rusting when the water based Intumescent Steel Paint is applied. Check a test area before proceeding.

Apply in 1 to 5 coats by brush or roller or spray to achieve the loading specified by our Technical Department.

Protect from high humidity and water splash. Do not leave exposed outdoors without a protective coat of oil based Flame Paint.

Airless spray – Graco 1500 or 5000 with 0.015" tip.

Pressure pot – Devilbiss J.G.A 502 gun, 402-FF needle, 705 aircap, FF nozzle.

DRYING TIMES

Allow a minimum of 4 hours between Intumescent Base coats, 10 hours before applying a Flame Paint finish coat to the last base coat, 4 hours between water based Flame paint finish coats and 12 hours between Gloss coats of Flame Paint finish. Intumescent paints will not withstand high humidity or rainwater - they must be protected with a fully dried top coat before exposure to the elements.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Intumescent Steel Paint and Flame Paint finishes are manufactured under the principles of BS 5750/ISO 9000

COMPOSITION

Intumescent compounds. Intumescent paint resin binders. High opacity pigments.

ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH & SAFETY

Intumescent Steel Paints are made within a low odour, water-based system, thus making them user and environmentally friendly. However, this does make them prone to 'flash' rusting on bare steel - always Prime first and ensure that all existing rust has been treated.


What is a Steel Fire Paint

'Steel Fire Paint' is a general term rather misleadingly used to cover both Flame Paint, used as a top coat to protect the Intumescent Paint beneath and Intumescent Paint, which is a soft, water based coating to only be applied over a steel Primer. '30 Minutes' and '60 Minutes' describe the period of protection given by the underlying Intumescent layers of Intumescent Paint against heating up effects - warping, twisting and buckling - which would lead to early collapse and reduced escape time.

We can provide an Intumescent Paint price based on the thickness of the steel to be protected, and a separate price for the Fire Rated Flame Paint, which is used as a top coat and which acts as a retardent fire layer, producing an inert gas to protect itself.
