Description

Thermoguard Thermocoat S is an intumescent paint anti-fire system providing fire resistance to structural steel and cast iron of up to 90 mins with a minimum number of coats. A compatible decorative overcoat system ensures the system will enhance the building’s architectural and design features. Recommended for external exposed steel not subject to pooling water.

Thermoguard Thermocoat S works as the heat of a fire triggers a catalytic reaction, causing the expansion of an insulating char layer up to 50 times the paint thickness. This layer keeps the steel below its critical temperature, thus maintaining the structural integrity of the building.

Treat galvanised surfaces with “T” wash/Mordant solution & prime with zinc phosphate or other primers for steel.

Thermoguard High Build Metal Primer or Thermoguard HB MIO Primer, may be left without further overcoating or decorated with appropriate conventional paint where no fire resistance is required. Thermoguard HB MIO Primer may be left uncoated in external locations for 6 months.
