Intumescent Coating

Intumescent Coating is used as a fire retardant, being a “passive” form of fire protection. The coatings will expand in extreme heat and is often used as a way to bar a fires path. This means that there is also Intumescent putty which is placed inside door frames or sensitive pipe cavities as a way to fill the hole and prevent the spread of fire.

Intumescent Coating is used as a way to offset the heat transfer of fire. A thin layer expands and spreads the applied heat slowing down the damage a fire or extreme heat can cause.
