INTUMESCENT COATINGS CAMBRIDGESHIRE | NATIONWIDE
Intumescent Coatings are used in conjunction with other fire protection methods when aiming to achieve Passive Fire Protection.
As stated by Wikipedia, “an intumescent is a substance that swells as a result of heat exposure, thus increasing in volume and decreasing in density. Intumescents 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 laws.”
FireSnuff® can apply Intumescent Coatings in buildings to ensure that they are capable of withstanding high temperatures and to also ensure that buildings are structurally safe. This is a vital step to consider when taking fire protection measures because if you do not use Intumescent Coatings, your structure could collapse, as steel softens in high temperatures. If Intumescent Coatings are applied this can be prevented.
