PPG Steelguard FM560 has been tested to national and international standards and can be used in dry, internal environments without the use of a protective topcoat. Steelguard FM560 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 FM560 can be applied using airless spray for optimum performance and a brush should only be used for touch ups and small tricky areas. Steelguard FM560 should not be applied below 5 degrees or above 50 degrees Celsius, otherwise it may not adhere to the surface properly. With quick drying time FM560 is dry in just 20 minutes and can be recoated after 4 hours in conditions of around 20 degrees Celsius.
PPG Steelguard FM560 can be used of on-site or off-site application and when dry produces a high quality, white/grey matt, protective coating that can be used internally or externally to ensure that structural steel has the utmost protection from the risk of fire.
