Sherwin Williams Firetex M95 - Formerly Leighs is a durable, 2 pack epoxy intumescent coating suitable for cellulosic fire protection to blast cleaned steel.
An exterior durable intumescent, which can be applied directly onto blast cleaned steel. Suitable for application in-shop and on site, provided the conditions listed below are adhered to. After application, unless a sealer coat is applied prior to exposure, the coating must be protected from the weather until the material reaches a shore D hardness of 50 in order to become exterior durable. Applications below 15°C may result in insuffi cient curing and reduced weather resistance and performance. See application conditions and overcoating.
Recommended primers: Macropoxy L574 Blast Primer, Macropoxy C425V2 Zinc Phosphate Primer, Macropoxy C400 Range, Macropoxy M111 Wet Blast Primer or FIRETEX C69 Fast-Track Blast Primer. Recommended application method via airless spray or trowel for small areas or touch up only. Do not thin. Indefinitely overcoatable with high performance systems provided the surfaces to be coated are free from all contaminants. Where a high degree of gloss and colour retention is required overcoat with Acrolon C137V2 within 7 days at a minimum dft of 50 microns or in the case of Acrolon C750V2 overcoat within 4 days. These overcoating times refer to achievement of optimum adhesion at 23°C and will vary with temperature. FIRETEX M95 is indefinitely overcoatable with itself.
