Nullifire S609 is a thin film intumescent coating for the passive protection of structural and interior steelwork and provides up to 2 hours fire protection.
The coating is fast drying and provides a durable robust finish that is resistant to damage and wear from transport and service. It can be applied by airless spry techniques or other automated processes.
In a fire, the coating expands to several times its original thickness, producing a foam-like insulating layer or ‘char’ to protect the underlying steel from the effect of the heat.
The coating comprises three layers. A primer which serves to protect against corrosion and provide a key for the base coat. The base coat which provides the intumescent properties and a top coat to which protects the base coat from mechanical damage and provides a decorative finish.
Nullifire S609 has been evaluated in accordance with BS476:Part 21 using a range of substrates and profiles.
