Sherwin Williams Firetex FX2002 - Formerly Leighs is a solvent based intumescent single pack thin film coating designed for in shop application to provide fire resistance for up to 120 minutes on structural steel.
FIRETEX FX2002 is designed for in-shop application by airless spray, to provide fi re resistance for up to 120 minutes on structural steel. After appropriate drying, FIRETEX FX2002 specifi cations can be exposed to the weather for up to 6 months provided that the specific use or storage does not lead to ponding water due to rainfall, condensation or other site / transportation/storage circumstances.
For in-shop application, use FIRETEX C69 Fast-Track Blast Primer. Several primers have been approved for use under FIRETEX FX2002. Please consult our technical team for detailed information. Apply using airless spray only - recommended thinner No2. FIRETEX FX2002 is designed for use over a suitably prepared and primed substrate. Ensure surfaces to be coated are clean, dry and free from all surface contamination. Under certain circumstances it may be possible to apply FIRETEX FX2002 directly to steel blast cleaned to a minimum standard of Sa2½ BS EN ISO 8501-1:2007, surface profi le in the range 50-100 microns.For certain dry, internal situations where the final colour / appearance is not critical, then FIRETEX FX2002 may remain un-topcoated. For externally exposed steelwork and severe internal environments Acrolon C137V2 or Acrolon C237 must be used as a topcoat. For other internal environments where a topcoat is required then FIRETEX M71V2 should be used. In all instances for subsequent re-decoration, use FIRETEX M71V2, Acrolon C137V2 or Acrolon C237 as appropriate.
