PPG STEELGUARD intumescent coating systems are specifically formulated to provide superb fire protection for civil buildings. These coatings expand at high temperatures from a thin coating into a thick, foam-like layer that insulates the steel from the fire; this insulation maintains the steel’s stability, providing vital time to help people escape. These coatings produce an extremely smooth surface that can be topcoated with a variety of colors. The range also includes waterborne coatings specifically designed for onsite use, conforming to the most stringent environmental regulations, applicable even while people are using the building.
The PPG STEELGUARD range of products have European (EN 13381) and national certification from many countries.
