Sherwin Williams Firetex M95/02 is an epoxy intumescent suitable for cellulosic fire protection for exterior blast cleaned steel.
Firetex M95/02 exterior durable intumescent, which can be applied directly onto blast cleaned steel. Suitable for application in-shop and on site, provided the conditions listed below are adhered to. After application, unless a sealer coat is applied prior to exposure, the coating must be protected from the weather until the material reaches a shore D hardness of 50 in order to become exterior durable. Applications below 15°C may result in insufficient curing and reduced weather resistance and performance. See application conditions and overcoating.
Apply using airless spray or trowel for small areas or touch up only. Recommended primers: Macropoxy L574 Blast Primer, Macropoxy C425V2 Zinc Phosphate Primer, Macropoxy C400V3 Epoxy Primer/Buildcoat, Macropoxy M111 Wet Blast Primer, FIRETEX C69 Fast-Track Blast Primer. Recommended topcoats: For self overcoating, the maximum overcoat period is 7 days. Outside of this period, mechanical abrasion will be required to ensure optimum adhesion. Where a high degree of gloss is required overcoat with Acrolon C137V2 within 7 days at a minimum DFT of 50 microns or in the case of Acrolon C750V2 overcoat within 4 days. These overcoating times refer to achievement of optimum adhesion at 23°C and will vary with temperature. If applying directly to steel, blast clean to Sa2½ BS EN ISO 8501-1:2007. Average surface profile in the range 50-75 microns.
For use on I column 4 sided beams and hollow columns, FIRETEX J220 scrim cloth must be installed. For use on structural 3 sided I beam sections, FIRETEX J120 or J220 scrim cloth must be installed around the bottom flange of the beam.
