    Intumescent Paint Cape Town – How do Intumescent Coatings work?

    • Heat resistant coatings are specially prepared to withstand high heat temperatures for prolonged period of time.
    • Heat resistant coatings are not designed to extinguish fire. The coatings only reduce chances of fire, and are functional and effective to control fire & reduce flammability of fuels by decelerating the combustion power for a limited time frame only.
    • All commonly used building materials lose strength when exposed to high enough temperatures. In extreme cases, steel may buckle and collapse in just a few minutes. In the case of fire, our intumescent coatings expand to create a layer of carbon char. This insulates the steel beneath, enabling it to retain its load-bearing capacity for up to two hours and giving people valuable time to evacuate.
    • They are mainly used in buildings where the fire resistance requirements are 30, 60 and 90 minutes.
    • They can be divided into two types, non-reactive, of which the most common types are boards and sprays, and reactive, of which thin film intumescent coatings are the most common example. Thin film intumescent coatings can be either on-site or off-site applied.
    • Many heat resistant coatings also have an anti-corrosive finish, which adds more protection for the surface.
