Fire Protection Paint Coatings contractor Dartford
Our company provides nationwide specialist fire protective paint coating services in Dartford.
Intumescent paint provides a similar appearance similar to a paint finish, while also producing a low odour making it ideal for use in confined areas. Fire retardant coatings expand when exposed to high levels of heat, giving up to 240 minutes of protection; this will reduce any immediate impact of fire spreading and heat damage. The increase of temperature causes a chemical reaction; the intumescent paint expands to many times its original thickness, which provides insulating foam to protect the substrates.
Fire retardant paint coatings on public buildings are an essential health and safety requirement. The tragedy at Grenfell Tower Block in London has highlighted the importance of the need for professional fireproof painting.
