Intumescent Paint and Fireproof Coating

Your industry might work with a number of chemicals, gases, and other extremely flammable materials in Utah or throughout the country. Working in these fields, you need to ensure that you are taking the necessary precautions to protect your staff and machinery. Intumescent paint coatings can offer another layer of protection that you can count on throughout the year to safeguard your equipment.

What is Intumescent Paint?

Intumescent paint is a type of paint that is commonly used in commercial and industrial buildings. Flame-retardant chemicals are incorporated into the paint coating, so that it is capable of withstanding exposure to:

  • Natural gas
  • Peroxides
  • Chemicals

If you have intumescent protective coatings, it can reduce the rate at which flames can spread and even resist ignition when it’s exposed to high temperatures. The added benefit of intumescent paid is that it can be applied to many spherical buildings, such as chimneys and silos.

Take Advantage of Fireproof Coatings

As you begin to paint the various interior and exterior aspects of your business, you have to consider what it will be exposed to. Some products are inherently more flammable than others. Additionally, some industries may be working under higher temperatures.

It’s critical that you do everything you can to prevent fires and make it easier to keep fires contained effectively. Fire protective coatings are formulated to resist corrosion as well as thermal, UV, and chemical degradation.

Why Invest in Fire Protective Coatings?

It’s important to look at the long-term protection you’re offering the various aspects of your business. Rather than focusing solely on paint for the purpose of aesthetics, you should be looking at how it can offer a long-term maintenance solution to your commercial or industrial building. The paint features epoxy and novolac, so that it is impact-resistant and won’t wear down quickly through regular use.

As a fire-retardant coating, intumescent coatings can withstand temperatures up to 600° Celsius for a limited amount of time. This can help to offer a significant amount of structural protection until the fire is put out, saving lives and equipment.

While you’re certainly going to do whatever you can to prevent fires from occurring on-premises, one point of failure isn’t enough. Whether you’re looking to protect a city building, a factory, a school, or some commercial structure, intumescent coatings are a wise investment.
