One coat solution for fire protection
Fire protection coatings manufacturer, Leighs Paints, has created a one product solution which it said will simplify fire protection, and reduce process costs.
FIRETEX FX1002 for onsite and FIRETEX FX2002 for in shop applications can now provide fire protection up to 120 minutes – creating a one product solution for a wide range of steel sections.
Simplifying the fire estimation and specification process, while also reducing the risks involved during application; one of FIRETEX FX1002/2002’s advantages is said to be the ability to achieve a higher fire rating by simply changing the amount of coating applied, as opposed to changing the product completely. This is said to remove the need for multiple products, which ultimately reduces waste, process time and most importantly cost.
Leighs Paints Business Manager, Anthony Ward said: “Fire protection solutions are a great passion of Leighs Paints, and we continually work to develop our range to provide more competitive, cost effective solutions for our customers.
The improvements to FX1002 and FX2002 enable us to provide a competitive one product solution, which can reduce process costs and improve stock management – in an industry where time and price are so important; any reduction can give big advantages.”
