Questions



questions Ben  on 08/03/2018
Question: 

I want to paint some steel columns and then cover with a powder coated aluminium cover. Does the aluminium overclad effect the performance of the paint or should we paint the aluminium cladding with the ford paint instead? Thanks, Ben

Answer: 

We could not offer anything to fire protect the aluminium cover but if the structural steel was coated successfully with something like Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+, then in the event of a fire the intumescent requires an uninhibited air gap for expansion equivalent to 50 x the DFT (dry film thickness) of the intumescent.

questions Nicola Greenwood on 28/10/2017
Question: If the steel rsj has a red oxide coating on it can Zero flame be painted directly onto this or does another primer need to be painted onto the steel first please? Many thanks.
Answer: 

Steelwork to be coated with Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+ must be primed with an anti-corrosion primer suited to the intended environment of the building and applied to the manufacturers specification with the exceptions that the Dry Film Thickness does not exceed 100 microns and that thermoplastic, bitumen or chlorinated rubber coatings are not used. If the steel has been galvanised or coated with a zinc rich primer, a suitable tie-coat should be applied (consult the Technical Department for guidance).


Before applying Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+, patch prime any damaged areas and ensure the surface is dry, free from rust, oil, grease, dust and other contaminants. Existing decorative finishes must be removed.

questions Nigel french on 20/09/2017
Question: How many coats of Zero flame required to steel beam? Beam has the normal dark pink coating applied. Thanks.
Answer: 

The number of coats and spreading rate you need to apply will depend on the steels you have to protect and the level of fire protection you require. Download the Technical Data Sheet (TDS) from the 'DATASHEETS' tab on the product page for details.

questions ian on 13/09/2017
Question:  For new un coated steel what is the best route. should i let the fabricators prime them in there normal red finish or use the Aquastel WB+ from the start?
Answer: 

Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+ must NOT be applied to bare steel. All steel should be suitably primed before application. Zeroflame recommend Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion for bare mild steel and Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 after preparation.

questions KJD on 19/06/2017
Question: Do you have to use a primer with Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+?
Answer: 

Steelwork to be coated with Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+ must be primed with an anti-corrosion primer suited to the intended environment of the building and applied to the manufacturer's specification with the exceptions that the Dry Film thickness does not exceed 100 microns and that thermoplastic, bitumen or chlorinated rubber coatings are not used. If the steel has been galvanised or coated with a zinc-rich primer, a suitable tie-coat should be applied. Consult Technical Department for advice.

Question: 

What is a suitable primer for the Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+?

questions John Smith on 08/06/2015
Question: 

I have a CHS steel column in my kitchen which requires 30 minute protection. Can Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+ be overpainted with normal waterbased eggshell?

Answer: 

No. The spreading rate for 30 minute protection on a CHS (assuming it is made from steel at least 4mm thick) will be 0.4m² per litre. Once Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+ has been applied as required, if it is to remain visible in the property it must be overcoated with Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+ Finish, this is a water based eggshell finish that can be mixed to any RAL or BS colour.
