Benefits of Intumescent Paint

Fire Protection

Intumescent Paint forms an insulated layer over steelwork during a fire which protects it from overheating and losing it’s core strength.

This can be for 30, 60 or 120 minutes.


Intumescent paints are available in water based and solvent based options. They can be used externally and finished with a topcoat to the colour of your choice.


Intumescent Paint is the cheapest, easiest and fastest method of steel protection, more effective than any board system on the market.

Intumescent Paint Systems

Intumescent paint is used to protect office blocks, industrial units and housing to name but a few.

Multi storey buildings require steelwork to be protected as well as boundary conditions and mezzanine floors within warehouses.
