Intumescent coatings aids in the protection of an interior or exterior structure to achieve a fire resistance while offering an aesthetically pleasing look. Intumescent paint increases in volume and decreases in density when in direct contact with heat exposure allowing for hours of protection.
Fire resistance is an essential element in any structure. While there are many options to achieve this goal, intumescent paint can be the ideal solution for an affordable way to protect your property in the event of a fire. Keeping a fire from spreading is one of the primary goals of intumescent fireproofing in New York City. Are you wondering how intumescent coatings can protect your facility? The answer is simple. This coating protects the interior and exterior of the structure by expanding in high heat to form a char layer over the steel. For every 1mm of paint, it can expand up to 50mm thick when exposed to heat to provide additional protection. Because this layer has low thermal conductivity, it protects the structure itself from burning, providing effective fireproofing for homes and businesses in New York City.
