We issue a Fire Certificate for 60mins to 12.5mm fire rated plasterboard or 30mins to 9mm plasterboard, cement or similar based board under-drawing 22mm+ T&G flooring.
Wallcoat Intumescent Paint added minimum 30mins Fire Resistance to 10mm and 12.5mm cementitious board and to 12.5mm plasterboard in a 90min indicative UKAS Fire Test Laboratory.
In all cases a 25mm MDF was located 70mm behind the cement of plasterboards. Temperatures were monitored on the protected face (facing away from the furnace) of the MDF, and char damage to the side of MDF facing the plasterboard or cement board was measured following the 90min Fire Test. Char damage was 10>12mm, indicating unprotected exposure to fire of 15>20mins during the 90min period. Insulation was maintained for 60mins.
The TV documentary Megastructures "Building from Disaster" demonstrated a 45min. max. severity burn test on 25mm softwood panels, with our Wallcoat/Timbercoat intumescent painted, normal painted and unpainted panels. The last two burnt completely through within 6mins, whereas the panel protected with Wallcoat/Timbercoat had lost only 1-2mm to charring and maintained full insulation. A copy of the footage is available upon request.
The plasterboard must be sound and any paint must be firmly adhered**.
Hard or smooth paints must be thoroughly abraded to provide a key
Ensure surfaces are dry & free from contamination.
