Intumescent coatings application

Intumescent coatings application

EAPFP, the European Association for Passive Fire Protection has published the excellent document EUROPEAN INDUSTRY BEST PRACTICE GUIDE ON THE APPLICATION OF INTUMESCENT COATINGS TO CONSTRUCTIONAL STEEL.

This publication covers all that building owners, applicators and manufacturers need to know and take care of for a proper application of intumescent coatings to steelwork.
Correct selection, application, installation and maintenance of intumescent coatings in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions are essential if the intended in-service performance and, most importantly, the extension of the stability of the building structure during a fire are to be achieved.

As a member of EAPFP, IRIS Coatings is proud to offer you this must-read booklet for your download and use.

An italian translation has been edited by our Senior Expert Gianni Nava and is available in the italian section.
