Sherwin Williams Firetex FX13381-1 is a single pack thin film intumescent coating to provide 120 minute of fire resistance to structural steel.
FIRETEX FX13381/1 is designed for site application by airless spray, to provide fire resistance for up to 120 minutes on structural steel. For use without topcoat in dry internal areas - category Z2 as defined in ETAG 018-2. For use with topcoat in internal areas with high humidity, semi exposed areas and in fully exposed areas - categories Z1, X and Y as defined in ETAG 018-2. FIRETEX FX13381/1 can resist normal weather conditions for up to 6 months without topcoat provided it has had appropriate drying prior to exposure. Once an approved topcoat has been applied as appropriate to the prevailing conditions, then durability will be substantially enhanced. If the specific use or storage could lead to prolonged contact with water due to rainfall, condensation, or other site/transportation/storage circumstances, then a recommended topcoat must be used to prevent damage to the basecoat.
Recommended application via airless spray. Recommended thinner no2. For certain dry, internal situations where the final colour/ appearance is not critical, then FIRETEX FX13381/1 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 or Sher-Cryl M770 should be used. In all instances for subsequent re-decoration, use FIRETEX M71V2, Acrolon C137V2 or Acrolon C237 as appropriate. FIRETEX FX13381/1 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 FX13381/1 directly to steel blast cleaned to a minimum standard of Sa2½ BS EN ISO 8501-1:2007, surface profile in the range 50-100 microns.
