Sherwin Williams Firetex M90/02 is a two pack, solvent free, thick film epoxy exterior intumescent coating that provides passive hydrocarbon fire protection for up to 4 hours on structural steel, decks and bulkheads.
Firetex M90/02 has type approvals and listings from numerous Classification Societies and Authorities, and is recommended for use on both onshore and offshore structures. It has been extensively tested and approved for durability under NORSOK M501 and UL1709. Typical examples of use are: Decks and bulkheads, Structural steel support members, Pipe racks, Vessel skirts and saddles, Tanks, Vessels, Steel structures exposed to potential blast.
FIRETEX M90/02 is also recommended for use in LNG and cryogenic applications when applied as a duplex system using FIRETEX M89/02. FIRETEX M90/02 is an exterior durable coating that is tested and approved for both pool and jet fire situations. It has resistance to the following: Moisture, Acid spillage, Alkali spillage, Petroleum solvents, Aliphatic solvents, Abrasion and Weather
Recommended application via plural component spray, airless spray or trowel, preformed castings. Overcoating should take place within seven days of application of the previous coat of FIRETEX M90/02. If seven days is exceeded, mechanical abrading of the FIRETEX surface is required to ensure proper adhesion.
Drying times, curing times and pot life should be considered as a guide only. The curing reaction of epoxies begins immediately when the two components are mixed, and since the reaction is dependent on temperature, the curing time and pot life will be approximately halved by a 10°C increase in temperature and doubled by a 10°C decrease in temperature. Galvanized surfaces must be prepared according to SSPC SP-16 with minimum surface profile of 1.0 mils followed by priming with Macropoxy 646 series at 2-5mils (50-125 microns) DFT.
