Improved fire protection coating launched

December 18, 2018 by NSC in Weekly News
Leading coatings manufacturer Hempel has launched its new passive fire protection (PFP) coating, Hempafire Pro 315 which has been developed for steel structures.

The company claimed that this fast-drying product has been designed specifically with versatile application properties for improved efficiency.

Hempafire Pro 315 has been optimised for 60 minutes cellulosic fire protection and provides some additional protection for up to 90 minutes.

Hempafire Pro 315 is said to be suitable for all steel profile types – from thin hollow sections to large open columns and beams. This simplifies the specification process and reduces stock and operational costs.

Hempel’s Group Product Manager, Cellulosic PFP, Roger Soler, said: “Hempafire Pro 315 is quick and easy to apply offering significant efficiencies to applicators – whether in the shop or on-site. Due to its lower loadings and thinner film thicknesses, Hempafire Pro 315 significantly reduces drying times improving paint shop efficiency.

“As a high-build coating, Hempafire Pro 315 can also be applied up to 1,600 microns in one coat, which means almost all steel sections can be covered with just one layer of intumescent coating. For on-site new-build application and repair, this gives you spray-and-go efficiency – and quicker project completion times.”
