Intumescent Fire Retardant Paint for steel- white, class 0. Volume discounts may be available on request.

Intended use
Thermoguard Thermocoat is a water-based intumescent paint system which gives up to two hours of fire resistance to structural steel and cast iron with a minimum number of coats. A compatible decorative overcoat ensures the system will enhance the building’s architectural and design features.
  • For 30 mins protection: 1 thick coat – 2.5kg 4 linear m, 5kg 8 linear m, 20kg 32  linear m –  if in any doubt please contact us.
  • For 60, 90 or 120 minutes protection: contact us for further advice specific to your project
How Thermoguard Thermocoat works Thermoguard Thermocoat W
The heat of a fire triggers a catalytic reaction in the Thermoguard Thermocoat which expands an insulating char layer up to 50 times the paint thickness. This layer keeps the steel below its critical temperature, thereby maintaining the structural integrity of the building.

Fire testing
Product performance assessment is based on UKAS/ NAMAS Fire Test Laboratory Certification to BS 476 Part 21 – fire resistance to load bearing elements of structures.

Fire certification 
Thermoguard issues a Certificate of Supply on request for each specified project for insurance, fire and building control authority and client records.

Preparation and pretreatment
Steel and cast iron should be free from rust and millscale and primed with Thermoguard High Build Metal Primer to 75 microns DFT (or alternative good quality anti-corrosive primer compatible with intumescent paints) in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.
Galvanised steel should be degreased with a suitable etch primer like this Manor 1 pack etch primer.
Thermoguard High Build Metal Primer may be left without further overcoating, or decorated with appropriate conventional paint where no fire resistance is required.

Thermoguard Thermocoat is available in 20kg, 5kg and 2.5kg containers. Thermoguard flame retardant finishes are available in 2.5L and 5L sizes in a wide choice of colours and finishes.
