Intumescent Coatings

Intumescent coatings provide an appearance similar to that of a paint finish and can be applied by spray or brush. At ambient temperatures they remain stable. However, in a fire situation the increase in temperature causes a chemical reaction.

The Intumescent coating expands at high temperatures to many times its original thickness. This provides a foam like coating or “char” which protects the substrate.

E G Lewis Blasting & Coating recommend using Intumescent Coatings on both Steel Structures and Timber structures. On steel structures the coating is designed to insulate the steel and prevent temperatures of the steel from rising to a critical point at which structure failure becomes possible. Timber structures are more susceptible to the surface spread of flames and heat propagation. The intumescent coatings are designed to reduce the heat propagation and reduce the spread of flames protecting the structure.
