2 coats of Thermoguard Smoke & Flame Retardant Dualcoat may also be required for strong/dark colours - Thermoguard Timbercoat will be provided in a suitable undercoat shade to aid topcoat opacity unless instructed otherwise.

Please note: Timber must be clean and thoroughly dry prior to application (maximum 18% moisture content). Any gaps should be sealed with Thermoguard Intumescent Mastic. Fire should be prevented from accessing unprotected wood surfaces and for external applications it is recommended wood has been sealed on the reverse face to stop water ingress.

NOT suitable for the topside of floor surfaces that will be trafficked/walked on.

To achieve 60 minute protection minimum timber thicknesses apply of which approval must be sought before purchase.

Touch Dry: 4 hours / Overcoat: 6 hours

Ensure fully hard dry before next coat, only apply to dry timber in good drying conditions.

IMPORTANT - The below information from the manufacturer must be read and referred to your relevant authority for approval BEFORE purchase and use.

Half Hour and 1 Hour Resistance To Wood

In line with good common practice, we recommend that approval be sought for the use of our system, outlining our justification for the issuing of the Fire Certificate prior to the product’s use.

Authorities generally accept our Fire Test evidence (copies available upon request) as justification for the provision of One Hour Fire Resistance in cases such as this for up to 1 Hour Fire Resistance, depending upon the thickness of board in question.

We hold independent Fire Tests for Thermoguard Timbercoat to provide One Hour Fire Resistance to a mock-up of a ceiling comprising softwood timber boards on softwood joists, with the boards abutting one another and joined by metal tongues set into the abutting edges of the boards. Whilst the amount of residual undamaged timber was clearly adequate to have withstood office or accommodation design loads, the floor tested in the Fire Test did not have weight imparted to it, as we sought data to work from the test for sites with greatly differing make-ups.

The floor tested achieved One Hour Fire Resistance to BS 476 Part 22, with approximately 7mm of timber joist and board surfaces destroyed to charring during the test. Charring was greater up the open joints between floorboards, reaching 12mm, as one would expect being merely butt-jointed rather than tongue and groove jointed. Provided the calculated residual structure is adequate, we also issue Certification to BS 476 Part 21 to 30 or 60min Fire Resistance. The normal char factor of unprotected softwood for 60 minutes is approx 50mm, thus additional Fire Resistance provided by our Intumescent Paint was approximately 30 minutes.

A Fire Resistance test for 30mins was carried out at Warrington Fire Research Centre in January 2016 to 25mm softwood and 25mm MDF. Uncoated boards burnt through completely during the test.

  • Application at 300 microns wet (12m² per 5kg) resulted in loss to char of 7mm on softwood and 5mm on MDF
  • Application at 500 microns wet (8m² per 5kg) resulted in loss to char of 3mm on softwood and 2mm on MDF

Thermoguard Timbercoat was filmed by Channel 5 for documentary “Megastructures – Building from Distaster” which recorded in simultaneous parallel test to 18mm softwood that at 6mins uncoated board burnt through, while boards protected with Timbercoat @ 600 microns / 7m² per 5kg lost only 3mm to char at 45mins, with the protected board retaining insulation so that it was safe to put a hand on the reverse face while the burner continued on the front face.

Minimum timber board thicknesses;

  • 60min protection - Board must be a minimum of 20mm thick

Beams and Joists;

  • 60min protection - Wood must be able to afford to lose 7mm to charring from exposed faces without collapsing, flame penetration or excessive heat penetration

Applications requiring 30 minute protection only can in most instances be achieved using a 'reduced' specification, for details see Thermoguard Timbercoat 30 Minute System

Note – For advice email [email protected] or call 0113 2455450 (option 2)

Application to OSB/Sterling Board

Only surface spread of flame protection can be provided to OSB, for BS Class 1/0 & EN Class B s1 d0 ONLY see Thermoguard Timbercoat BS Class 1/0 & EN Class B System for details.

Spray equipment suggestions for Thermoguard Timbercoat and Thermoguard Smoke & Flame Retardant Dualcoat;

  • Pressure Pot & Gun conventional unit with small compressor
  • Ensure all traces of solvent flushed out
  • Thin 5 > 10% with water to spray viscosity
  • Adjust fluid flow & air flow as normal for acrylic emulsion paint

OR

  • Airless Graco 1500, 3500 or equivalent
  • 3/8” line, 30 mesh filter on machine, not filter in gun

questions nick jg on 2020-12-10 14:56:59
Question: 

How long to the product last in an external environment before the coating needs to be redone?

Answer: 

Assuming the system is applied as directed in the Technical Data Sheet, the topcoat is intact, regularly checked and maintained then you shouldn’t need to re-apply the intumescent, only the topcoat where needed.

questions A Gordon on 2019-11-13 20:36:31
Question: 

I have Thermoguard Timbercoat paint system previously applied. Is it allowable to apply a regular paint over the top of in order to use a different colour?

Answer: 

Our recommendation is to purchase more of the Thermoguard Topcoat used in the original system in the new colour and finish of your choice. If this is not possible, please see details of Thermoguard Flame Retardant Additive. Full and correctly applied Thermoguard fire protection systems can, in certain instances be overcoated for colour change purposes if necessary however the normal, conventional paint to be used must have the Thermoguard Flame Retardant Additive added before application.

questions Alan Julier on 2018-08-14 20:34:01
Question: 

Would Thermoguard be suitable for coating the floorboards and Oak rafters in a cellar to produce 60 minutes protection to meet Fire Officer requirements for the charity shop above (no cooking facilities). Alan Julier

Answer: 

To be able to advise on this we would need to know the thickness of the floorboards (also whether they are butt jointed, T&G, etc.) and the dimensions of the rafters (width x depth). Also helpful would be how many square metres of floorboards there were to protect and how many rafters were to be protected and the length of each.
