Intumescent Painting and Fireproofing

Introducing Intumescent coatings from Diverse Works. This painting process is often referred to as intumescent painting, and these are used in buildings as a passive fire resistance measure and specific code requirements. They can be applied to structural members as an aesthetically pleasing fireproofing product.

The key feature of intumescents is that they expand significantly when exposed to high temperatures, such as those found in a fire. Some intumescent products can expand to more than 100-times the original thickness. As the product expands it becomes much less dense, which makes it act as in insulator that keeps the high temperatures away from structural members or protected openings.
