How much does intumescent paint cost?

As intumescent fire resistive coatings can be quite expensive ($4 to $12 per square foot, depending on the application and required rating), measuring the coating thickness can play an important role in controlling the application costs.

How effective is intumescent paint?

Intumescent paint is an integral part of effective passive fire protection system. When exposed to extreme temperatures, it rapidly expands to protect the surface that it’s applied to. This prevents, minimises, or delays fire damage to building structures, ultimately providing time for occupants to evacuate safely.

What is intumescent paint?

Intumescent paints are increasingly used to protect spherical structures containing natural gas, peroxides, and other chemicals. Of special importance in new construction of commercial buildings, intumescent coatings incorporate flame-retardant chemicals to achieve two distinct industry efficacy ratings.

How long does intumescent paint last?

Can I paint over intumescent paint?

At what temperature does intumescent paint react?

Intumescent paint reacts when its temperature attains or exceeds 120°C, and the process results in a soft charring effect at its surface (which insulates and reduces transmission of heat into the substrate) and the release of water vapour (which helps to cool the substrate).

Can fire retardant paint be painted over?

The short answer is yes, you can paint over it. The longer answer is “Be careful!” You want to tread lightly when it comes to painting over fire retardant paint with too many top-coat layers of regular paint.
