Protect steel and concrete structures
Fireproof paint or fire retardant paint is a type of coating you can apply on a surface to help prevent fire accidents. The coating refers to a substance layer which is significantly immune to fire. These coatings help reduce the flammability of fuels that are likely to result in hazardous fire incidents.
Nowadays, there are different types of fire resistant coatings: intumescent paint and fire retardant coatings. Most of them release fire resistant gasses when becoming hot. Intumescent paint, for instance, extends in heat and forms a fire resistant foam layer which protects the substrate from burning. We call these coatings fire resistant, but they’re not completely immune for burning. For that matter, a fire resistant coating slows down the burning process.
With the help of a fire retardant paint, people get more time to leave a burning building. Consequently, using these coatings can remarkably reduce the number of human injuries caused by fire. You can use fire retardant paint on different structures. For instance:
- Office buildings;
- Parking garages;
- Houses & apartments;
- The front facade of a building;
- Concrete supporting structures.
Various legal regulations have set a minimum safety standard that all buildings must meet. Applying coating can help builders meet these criteria.
