Sherwin-Williams Firetex FX2003
Sherwin-Williams Firetex FX2003 is single pack thin ﬁlm intumescent coating, designed for in-shop application by airless spray to provide ﬁre resistance for up to 120 minutes on structural steel.
After appropriate drying, Firetex FX2003 speciﬁcations can be exposed to the weather for up to 6 months provided that the speciﬁc use or storage does not lead to ponding water due to rainfall, condensation or other site/transportation/storage circumstances.
Firetex FX2003 can resist normal weather conditions for up to 6 months without topcoat provided it has had appropriate drying prior to exposure. Once an approved topcoat has been applied as appropriate to the prevailing conditions, then durability will be substantially enhanced. If the speciﬁc use or storage could lead to prolonged contact with water due to rainfall, condensation, or other site/transportation/storage circumstances, then a recommended topcoat must be used to prevent damage to the basecoat.
