How do fire proof paints work?
Intumescent coatings undergo a chemical reaction in the event of fire. The advanced formula fireproof paint expands up to 50 times its thickness to form a foam-like insulation layer that protects the underlying material from elevated temperatures. This protective char layer keeps steel within its critical service temperature range and delays inflammation of combustible timbers by reducing heat propagation and the spread of flame.
Can I paint on top of intumescent paint?
Fire protection paint and flame retardant varnish finishes can be used on an intumescent base coating to provide options for high quality durable decorative surface whilst meeting building regulations for fire protection. When subjected to high temperatures in the event of a fire conventional paint systems will break down and encourage fire spread. Flame proof coatings efficiently check or even prevent the spread of flame and fire.
