Recommended Use

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.

Please note that this product should not be used without first receiving an application schedule from our Technical Department. Please download and complete the 'FIRETEX Intumescent Support Request Form' and return by email to [email protected]

If you have any questions regarding this process consult our technical department on 0113 2455450 (option 2).


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.

Recommended Primers

For in-shop application, use Firetex C69 Fast-Track Blast Primer. Several primers have been approved for use under Firetex FX2003. Please consult our technical team for detailed information.

Recommended Topcoats

For certain dry, internal situations where the final colour/appearance is not critical, then Firetex FX2003 may remain un-topcoated. For externally exposed steelwork and severe internal environments Acrolon C137V2 or Acrolon C237 must be used as a topcoat. For other internal environments where a topcoat is required then Firetex M71V2 or Sher-Cryl M770 should be used. In all instances for subsequent re-decoration, use Firetex M71V2, Sher-Cryl M770, Acrolon C137V2 or Acrolon C237 as appropriate.
