Passive Fire Protection Systems Melbourne Australia - Roberts Contrax - Intumescent Paint

 
The intumescent paint system comprises basecoat applied to correctly prepared and compatibly primed surface, protected with a top sealer.

Intumescent coatings are applied to the substrate as a thin layer. When the temperature increases (usually above 200°C) the ingredients undergo a chemical reaction and produce an expanded char with a volume many times that of the original coating.

This char has low thermal conductivity and insulating properties, thus providing thermal protection to the substrate.
