Fire retardant paint

Fire Protection

Whether you call it "Fireproof Paint" or "Intumescent Paint", SprayTec can pre-finish a range of timber products for the following industries, hospitality, hotels, restaurants, boarding schools, public buildings, hospitals, guesthouses, B&Bs, offices, escape routes, all of which must be fire rated with intumescent coatings.

We are specialists in this sector and are one of only a few who offer this Fire Protection service across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

intpaintAbout Intumescent Coatings

Intumescent coatings are manufactured from a combination of chemicals and ingredients, which when subjected to fire and heat react in a controlled and predicted manner. The paint undergoes a chemical reaction; it softens and expands to form a cellular carbon foam layer.

We use these intumescent coatings to achieve Class 1 and Class 0 fire ratings. The test method used to assess the effectiveness of flame retardant products is BS476, Part 7 1987 and is used to classify a material in terms of "Spread of Flame".

Class 1 is a low surface spread of flame, the highest achievable with the test method and is a performance normally required for walls and ceilings.

In high risk areas such as escape routes Class 0, limited combustibility, is required. To comply materials must have a Class 1 Surface Spread of Flame and a low fire propagation to BS 476 Part 6 1989.

Intumescent coatings are used to prevent the penetration of fire through a structure for a specific period in accordance with BS 476 Parts 20-23 1987. Such coatings are given classifications with specific periods of time achievements, such as "30 minutes".
