Epoxy-based intumescent passive fire protection (PFP) coatings offer highly durable and corrosion-resistant solutions for surfaces in need of flame-resistant treatments.
While cementitious fireproof coatings are sometimes used in place of epoxy-based treatments, experts generally recommend epoxies due to their superior life cycle cost and ease of maintenance. Cementitious treatments are typically applied to non-steel materials, such as wood and masonry, while epoxies are the best choice for steel, metals, and alloys.
The underlying purpose of industrial epoxy fireproofing is to prevent the treated surface from reaching a critical core temperature when exposed to flames.
Though your specific needs may vary according to your organizational fire risk reduction plan, epoxy-fireproofing treatments are recommended for all primary structural components that come in contact with flammable chemicals and agents.
