What are Intumescent Coatings?

Intumescent coatings were first patented in 1948 and have bee sold commercially since about 1960. Intumescent coatings are exceedingly complex coating materials. They need to perform all of the three functions that other exterior weathering coatings do (adhesion, hardness, toughness, corrosion resistance, etc.) and then when exposed to sufficient heat, they need to transform and expand to form a thick, insulating, carbonaceous char.
