Hi, I need 60 minutes of fire protection on a steel beem 152 x 152 x 37 UC 6m span. How much paint would I need to achieve this? Kind Regards Nick
Assuming all 4 sides of the steel are exposed you would have a surface area of approximately 5.5m² which would require 11 litres of Bollom Brosteel Ultra 60 to acheive 60min protection.

|simon gleave on 17/11/2018|| |

We're having trouble spraying this product it seems to be really solid in the bucket, any ideas.?
The manufacturer advises mixing the paint before use using a plasters whisk attachment on a drill. This should break down the coating and allow it to be applied by a suitable heavy duty airless spray unit. See under Application Methods on the Technical Data Sheet available to download from the Download section on the product page.

Hi. I need intumescent white paint to cover a steel post of.....88.9x4 CHS to 60 min coverage. I will require a certificate for Building Control on completion. I like the look of the one you talk about on your website as only needs two coats to get it to required 60 mins. Also water based and east to apply. Many thanks Kindest regards Polly
Bollom Brosteel Ultra 60 would not be able to achieve 60min protection on this steel size due to the wall thickness being too thin. If you contact our Technical Department directly on 0113 2455450 or [email protected] they will be able to take some more information and advise a suitable intumescent for you.

|John Soutar on 26/03/2018|| |

Can we paint bollams 60min intumescent paint over steel painted with red oxide ?
