An intumescent is a substance that swells as a result of heat exposure, thus increasing in volume and decreasing in density. Intumescent coatings are typically used in passive fire protection and require listing, approval and compliance in their installed configurations in order to comply with the national building codes and regulations.
Structural steel is the most commonly protected material but protection can include other materials such as sheet metal, sheetrock, wood, concrete, foam, composite panels, fiberglass, interior woods, closed cell foams, open cell foams, and carbon graphite.
Intumescent Paints can be used on walls and ceilings that need to be rated with ASTM E119, for 1 hour and 2 hour fire rated standards.
FlameOFF® intumescent paint-like coatings are typically applied by pressure spray system, the product is water-based, non-toxic.
FlameOFF®’s Intumescent products are fully LEED accredited.
Intumescent coatings were first patented in 1948 and have been a commercial structure since 1960. Intumescent coatings are exceedingly complex coating materials. They need to perform all of the 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.
