One of the major reasons that make intumescent paint a great choice for fireproofing is that it is suitable for use on most structural building materials such as steel, concrete, MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard), brick, stone, plaster and plasterboard. Additionally, intumescent paint can be applied to most surfaces that are already painted, stained or varnished.
Intumescent paint provides a variety of benefits such as:
-Prolongs the structural life of steel and load bearing capacity of protected steel increases.
-Acts as an insulator so that the paint swells and provides an expanded layer of char which keeps flame away from structural members.
-Provides the fastest, the thinnest and the most aesthetically pleasing finish on the final structures, especially structural steel.
-Easy to use and repair, lightweight, safe, clean with low implementation thickness.
