Flame Retardant Topcoats
Flame retardant paints and topcoat finishes available at Rawlins Paints can be used after maintenance work has been on or around previously installed fire-retardant paint systems, or simply as decorative finishes over intumescent coatings and undercoats. These topcoat paints and coatings will help deliver a non-combustible fire rated paint system along with recommended and compatible primers and undercoats, to substrates including wood, plasterboard, structural steel and cast-iron. Alternately, some may be used direct to bare or previously painted, but non-combustible surface areas – typically walls and ceilings.
These flame retardant paints will limit the surface spread of flames in the outbreak of a fire, and protect combustible substrates – this is dependent on the underlying substrate, and the complete and correct installation of a fire retardant or intumescent paint system. For more information about undercoats and primers these flame-retardant paints should be used with, please refer to product datasheets.

Some fireproof paint systems need to be finished with a coloured topcoat and maintained periodically, either due to environmental conditions, or renovation work in a property or building complex. The range of hard-wearing and decorative flame retardant topcoats available from Thermoguard, Bollom and Envirograf allow the user to finish and maintain their projects in a wide range of colours and finishes without damaging the fire-retardant properties of the original system.
Our Class 0 and BS EN Class B flame retardant topcoats are most commonly used in two scenarios;
- To finish and complete a fire-retardant system, usually where a basecoat has been applied
- Where an existing fire-retardant system or item requires maintenance or re-decoration, using one of our flame retardant topcoats ensures the surface won't lose the level of fire protection it currently has. Available in matt, satin, eggshell, gloss finishes and almost the full range of RAL, BS and NCS colours.

All of the intumescent paints we offer have been tested to varying British/European standards by recognised independent third parties depending on their required use and performance. In addition to these industry standard tests, some products also offer additional paperwork after use by way of a ‘certificate’ that can be obtained in different ways - manufacturer dependent. Some require a form to be completed and returned by email, others have online application forms, others can be simply called to provide project details verbally. Not ALL products offer this additional supplement and if this type of certificate is important to your project you should contact our Technical Team on 0113 2455450 (option 2) or [email protected] to advise them of this so they can ensure they recommend a suitable product accordingly. Certain larger projects may also require the involvement of an independent inspector, again you should contact our Technical Department to discuss this if required.
