Product Description

Sherwin Williams Firetex FX5062 is a water based TCEO free, thin film intumescent coating for up to 90 minutes fire protection on structural steel.

Best Uses

FIRETEX FX5062 is designed for application by airless spray to provide fire resistance for periods of up to 90 minutes on structural steel. For use in internal dry controlled environments without topcoat (C1 according to ISO12944-2:1998) and internal semi controlled environments with topcoat (C2 according to ISO12944-2:1998).


Recommended application via airless spray or brush. Must not be applied directly to galvanized steel and zinc rich primers. If it can be guaranteed that application and subsequent in-service conditions will be in a C1 environment as defined in ISO 12944-2:2007, then no topcoat is required. For any other situation a topcoat must be applied. Sher-Cryl M770, FIRETEX M71V2, Acrolon C137V2 or Acrolon C237 products should be used for subsequent re-decoration.

In common with other water based coatings, the drying of this material is retarded by high humidity conditions. Lack of air movement also slows down the drying process, and under such conditions it is advisable to introduce some method of circulating air over the coated surface in order to speed up the drying. A ventilated air speed of 2 metres per second is recommended. FIRETEX FX5062 must be applied in a dry internal environment. It must not be exposed to condensation, damp or wet conditions during or after application.
