Fireproofing with Intumescent Coatings in Southern California

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

For a commercial or industrial building, adequate fireproofing is a must. More than simply keeping your building up to code, you can provide safety to your employees and customers. Intumescent coatings are a safe, affordable and durable option. Many businesses have found that intumescent coating services are a viable fireproofing solution, especially for steel structures.

How it works:

An intumescent substance swells when exposed to heat, increasing in volume and creating a protective thermal barrier for the treated substrate. These coatings are a form of passive fire protection, which means that it can contain fires or slow the spreading of fires.
