In airports, sports arenas, schools, hospitals and production plants the protective power of Charmor® products facilitates the safe evacuation of people and limits structural damage when a fire breaks out. Intumescent coatings provide many benefits compared to more traditional systems:
- Safer, better, sustainable alternative to old systems containing asbestos
- Maintains aesthetics of steel beams
- Lower maintenance and upkeep compared to sprinklers
This is particularly important in response to the serious health hazards posed by other products and the ever-increasing use of structural steel in construction projects.
“At very high temperatures, steel profiles distort and become weaker, which can lead to collapse,” comments Adrian Harden, Charmor Product Manager. “Intumescent coatings applied to surfaces within a building win crucial time. Our Charmor® range has been developed to ensure the very best in performance and protection for a longer time than any comparable product”.
Charmor® products range can be used both in waterborne and solvent borne coatings.
