The Nu-Flame Fire Upgrade paint system has been developed for the over-coating of multi layered paints without the need to strip the current paint. Removing the existing paint system is expensive, time consuming and can be a health hazard when working in a confined space such as a corridor. The Nu-Flame fire retardant paint system reduces the need for chemical stripping of the walls. Nu-Flame is a water based system which presents no health hazards and reduced odours during the application.

This Timber pack is comprised of a white intumescent undercoat and colour gloss topcoat.


Inspect and prepare in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions and apply:

  • 2 coats of Nu-Flame Timbercoat @ 7m²/Kg per coat.
  • 2 coats of Nu-Flame FR Gloss @ 14m²/Litre per coat.

Product Case Uses

  • Homes - In addition to skirting boards, homes also have timber doors. In the event of fire, it is important to buy as much time as possible to escape. Applying the Nu-Flame FR system will give your doors and other timber finishes more resilience to flames, giving you more time to escape through windows should the unimaginable happen.
  • Offices - With a plethora of IT equipment, telephony and paper-jamming printers, and of course the office coffee machine, this all adds up to a possible risk of fire. Even at time when businesses are going as paper-free as possible, there is still more than enough reports, invoices and legal docs which serve to spread flames quicker and easier.
  • Cafe - Preparing hot food and drinks comes with the obvious risk of fire. We've all seen the adverts in the past of chip pans going up in flames, and whilst chip pans may be a thing of yesteryear, cafes still have plenty of fire risks that must be taken seriously, especially since they will be serving members of the public.

Product Overview

Nu-Flame Timbercoat

We are looking for an intumescent (90 min would be good, 60min is ok) coating that can be applied over existing painted structural steel - I notice this product is for wood, do you have anything that is suitable (along with the certification to suite). In the environment we are in there are major issues with any attempt to blast clean the steel Please let me know asap Kind regards John


As you have said the product you have enquired about is not suitable for steel but we have many options that are. Please provide us with as much of the following information as possible;

- Level of fire protection required (i.e. 30, 60, 90min, etc.)
- Each steel section dimension (i.e. 254x146x37 UB)
- Quantity and length of each section (or overall meterage for each section)
- Orientation (horizontal or vertical)
- Number of sides to be painted (all sides, 3 sides, 1 flange, etc.)
- Environment (internal, external, car park, chemical exposure, etc.)
- Application on site or in shop

Alternatively you can just forward us drawings, fabrication/cutting lists and we'll extract the information from them but in that instance we'd need some guidance as to what to allow for i.e. all steels on first floor, etc.
