PPG Steelguard 564 is a one component, thin-film, solvent borne, intumescent coating designed for providing fire protection to structural steelwork in an industrial environment.

Best Uses

PPG Steelguard 564 has been tested to national and international standards and can be used in dry, internal environments without the use of a protective topcoat. Steelguard 564 is an excellent fire resistant product that provides up to 120 minutes of protection from cellulosic fires and provides surface with 12 months of weather resistance, when no topcoat is used, providing the structure is not immersed in water or exposed to high humidity.


PPG Steelguard 564 intumescent coating can be applied using airless spray for optimum performance and a brush should only be used for touch ups and small tricky areas. Steelguard 564 should not be applied below 5°C or above 50°C, otherwise it may not adhere to the surface properly. With quick drying time 564 is dry in just 20 minutes and can be recoated after 4 hours in conditions of around 20°C.
