All products are independently certified and a Certificate of Supply can be supplied for each purchase upon request. Nearly all our products can be applied by brush, roller or spray and do NOT require an ‘approved’ applicator.

Heat resistant paints are different to fire retardant and steel intumescent paints. Heatproof paints are designed to withstand very high temperatures; some can withstand temperatures of up to 750°C.

These products do not protect the surfaces they are applied to from heat by insulation, instead they are designed to endure the operating temperatures without affecting the paint colour or performance.

Colours are limited with heat resistant paints with the most common two colours being Black or Aluminium, a handful of other colours are available across the product range.
