Brosteel Ultra 60 - White Intumescent Paint

Once a steel surface has been primed with an anti-corrosive primer, Brosteel Ultra can be applied. This quick drying, matt white, thin-film intumescent coating is a hugely popular fire resistant product for steel in the UK and provides 30 and 60 minutes of flame resistance. Full details of each coatings fire retardant properties can be found below.

Brosteel Ultra 60 can also be overcoated with its own range of Flameguard Ultra approved topcoats to provide a desired colour and finish. For use on internal and external steel structures where areas are prone to excessive heat build up or are prone to small fires breaking out, this is another Bollom intumescent paint product that is used primarily within the industrial trade sector, but can be found on smaller domestic builds.

The Basics

What you really need to know...

  • Protects steel from fire - 1 coat = 30 mins / 2 coats = 60 mins*
  • Not to be applied onto bare steel, no special primer is required, just a suitable anti-corrosion primer.
  • Leaves a matt white finish which can be left as a finish (if not remaining visible) or overcoated with one of the Flameguard Topcoats.
  • Certificate of Conformance and Installation is issued with every correctly applied purchase upon request.
  • Fully tested and approved to British Standards.
  • Can be applied with a roller, brush or spray gun.
  • Brosteel Ultra 60 works by expanding in a fire to create a protective char to the steel surface that will last for a minimum of 30 minutes or 60 minutes respectively.

Fire Protection Simplified

Brosteel Ultra 60 is designed to take the guesswork out of intumescent specification, the simplified formulation provides 30 minutes fire protection in only one coat - 60 minutes can be achieved in two coats.*

Send us your question


do you need to use a primer of some sort on new universal steel beams before applying the ultra 60 thank you

lindsay nichol from hawick (scotland ) - 17/08/17


Yes, for bare mild steel/cast iron we recommend Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion and for bare galvanised steel use Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3. Follow manufacturers instruction for preparation, use, overcoating times, etc.

can you please advise a suitable primer for bare steel under the brosteel ultra 60.

darren gunn from Stockton on Tees (UK) - 12/07/17

Assuming adequately prepared, bare mild steel we would recommend Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion.

We are in process of redesigning a restaurant in basement and want to keep the steel beams exposed. We need a 60 minute paint so is this product suitable for us to use and how could be obtain the certification.?

PRAVEEN KUMAR from Glasgow (United Kingdom) - 30/04/16

Bollom Brosteel Ultra 60 will provide 60 minute fire protection on most standard structural steel sections. It is important to check that your steel is suitable according to the information in the Brosteel Ultra 60 Brochure available to download from our 'DATASHEETS' tab on this product page. Alternatively you can contact our Technical Team and provide them with the dimensions of your steel sections and they can confirm whether they would be suitable and if so how much Brosteel you would require. You can request a Certificate of Conformance and Installation from ourselves to provide to your authority as proof of completion after applying the product.

Does Bollom Brosteel Ultra 60 have BBA or CE approval for protecting a steel frame in a residential new build.

Nigel Lamb from Tring (England) - 13/03/16

Neither, but it has succesfully been tested by Certifire who are an independent third party certification scheme that assures performance, quality, reliability and traceability of fire protection products. They are recognised by regulatory authorities worldwide, and is an internationally respected mark of fire safety and one of the most authoritative in the industry. I will forward you a copy of the Certificate now.

Will Bollom Brosteel Ultra 60 meet UK building regulations (Part B: Fire Safety) in the UK if we want to expose steel beams in our living room?

Rob Boteler from Brackley (UK) - 01/06/15

Bollom Brosteel Ultra 60 will provide 30 or 60 minute protection to structural steelwork. It is important that you check with your authority what level of fire protection is required for the steel on your project but usually for residential properties it will be 30 minute protection that is required. You can apply Bollom Brosteel Ultra 60 and then request a Certificate of Conformance and Installation from ourselves to provide to your authority as proof of completion.
