Features & Benefits


  • Excellent fire resistance making combustible cables fireproof
  • Intumescent coating expands when exposed to fire, preventing spread of smoke and flames
  • Can be used in combination with Protecta FR Board as a coatback on services to achieve a higher fire classification
  • Reaches EI 60 and EI 90 fire classifications, tested to EN-1366 part 3 - see below for fire classifaction data
  • Non-toxic and emission free with near zero VOC and best possible emission classifications makes the paint perfect for anyone not wanting to breathe toxic chemicals and especially people suffering from asthma, allergies or any other breathing related diseases
  • Durable, robust and designed to last, can be cleaned with a damp cloth without the risk of washing off the paint
  • Excellent coverage by brush or spray. The paint can be applied in one-coat which is cost effective, saving paint and application time. No topcoat needed
  • Halogen free with added preservatives that resist bacteria and fungal growth providing extra protection to health in addition to the non-harmful emissions
  • The paint is not intended for application on bituminous substrates or substrates that can exude certain oils and plasticizers or solvents, and is not recommended for use in constant humid areas
  • The paint’s durability is expected to be at least 12 years making it a cost effective option when compared with normal paints with limited durability
  • Dry in 90 minutes (at ~22°C)
  • See below for application details and test data

Application Instructions


Preparation

Before painting ensure the surface to be painted is clean, dry and free from grease, dirt, dust, and other contaminants.

Paint

Stir thoroughly before use to ensure the paint is completely mixed. Apply to a small area of substrate to check compatibility before full application is attempted. The paint can be spray applied in one coat using, for example, the Graco X-Force Spray Gun, with a tip size of 17-21 thou. The paint can also be brush applied and can be diluted with up to 10% water for easier application. Do not apply in very damp or humid conditions or extremes of temperature. For fire classifications, please see the loadings in the table below.

Clean Up

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning out the spray gun after it has been used to spray a water based paint. Remove excess paint from the brush on the rim of the paint pot and then wash the brush with water. Store in a cool dry well ventilated area between +20 and +25°C. Don’t waste unwanted paint.
