IRIS COATINGS is a specialized producer of functional and reactive coatings.
Our specialties, developed by our own R&D, serve the building construction, train and shipbuilding industries since five decades.
IRIS COATINGS was one of the first companies in Europe to obtain certification of fireproofing coatings according to EN standards. Since then, we have been committed to become a specialist in fire protection.
Intumescent coatings and sealants extend time to structure collapse, ensure safe escape and fire brigade operations, thus saving lives and property. Our IRIS CHAR intumescent coatings and our IRISeal intumescent firestops swell up in the presence of fire forming a very effective thermal insulating protective barrier.
Intumescent coatings are widely used for fire protection of structural steelwork, concrete structures, wood structures and to reduce spread of fire over combustible materials.
Every year in the European Union 4,000 people are killed and 80,000 injured by fire.
The cost of fires to European countries is on average 1% of GDP.
