Intumescent paints and coatings, sometimes referred to as fireproof, fire resistant paint, flame/fire retardent, firestop or fire rated paints, are used in buildings as a passive fire protection measure to protect structural steel. They are usually specified in a fire risk assessment to comply with safety legislation and fire regulations and the level of fire protection or fire resistance is given in minutes which could be 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes. The key feature of Jotun thin-film intumescent paints is that they look much like a normal paint when applied but swell in the event of a fire insulating the structural steel members from high temperatures. Jotun are the world leaders in producing thin-film intumescent paints and have a state-of-the-art research facility here in the UK. As one of the largest Intumescent paint suppliers in the UK we supply for projects large or small, from factories, warehouses and hotels to a single beam or RSJ for a home extension or house or flat loft conversion. Jotun intumescent paints contributes to Green Building Standards credits.
We will supply a certificate of approval/conformity and a full calculations and specifications for each steel beam, including dry and wet film thicknesses, for building control as long as you provide us with; The length of time protection is required in minutes (usually 30 minutes for domestic and 60, 90 or 120 minutes for commercial), and for each steel: the number, size, weight and type of beam, the length, sides exposed and orientation. An example would be: 30 minutes protection, 2 x (254 x 102 x 22 UB), 3.5 meters long, 3 sides exposed, horizontal.
