Fire Retardent Coatings

Passive Fire Protection Coatings

Fire protection is important for:

  • Personnel protection – giving people time to escape or shelter from the effects of the fire Asset
  • protection–minimizing damage to the assets before f ire services arriving.

Fire Protection Coatings Fire strikeswhenleast expected.The speed at which the fire travels or propagates even a small accidental fire or electric spark caused by short circuit is sufficient to create huge, immeasurabledamageto the safety of people and properties.The fire can start fromexternal source or internal source, just from anywhere and without warning. Fire takes advantage of unprotected surfacesandareas concealed fromfire fighters. The consequences - overwhelming heat, suffocating smoke, loss of time, damage to items of sentimental value and above all, the loss of life. The insurance company may able to replace the materialgoods, but there are fewthings thatmoneysimply cannot replace.

The conventional paints coated over structural steel, concrete andwooden surfaces are flammable and indeed act as a fuel which aid in spreading of fire. The intense heat conducted through metal ignites the paint and combust spontaneously even if not subjected to a flame directly. In the event, of f ire , the winning time is crucial in evacuating the peopleandlimiting theamount of structuraldamage.There isnosecondchance with the fire. Onehas todoit right first time.

How Monarch's FlameGuard coating protects in the event of fire?

Monarch's FlameGuard fire retardant intumescent coatings offer ultimate protection in extensive applications like Industries, Institutions, Corporate houses, Show rooms, Residences, Schools, Dormitories, Hospital Care, Nursing Homes, Hotels, Motels, Retail stores, Restaurants, Transportation etc., on structural steel, concrete, cables, wood, rubber, PVC, canvas, gypsum board, polyurethane foam, wooden surfaces, joists, beams, acoustic tile, rough and finished timbers, open surface panel board, previously painted wall board, hardwoods, softwoods, drywall, SPF plywoodandOSBetc.,

fire retardent paint This coating after application dries quickly toamatt finish .Oncontact with fire or excessive heat, the coating puffs up (intumesces) to several times thicker than original coating film, forming a sponge - like cellular foam insulating char layer and reduces available oxygen to the surface. Intumescent is a substance which swells as a result of heat exposure, thus increasing in volume, and decreasing in density.An insulating char of lowthermal conductivity that reduces heat transfer to substrate and slows the temperature rise of the substrate. The product works by cutting off oxygen fromthe fuel source inhibiting the combustion process in the immediate vicinity of the area and reduces the transmission of fire, heat and smoke to the protected area like fire retardant jacket during and after exposure to fire. Even after prolonged exposure to a fire the coating is not destroyed and continue to shield the substrate by forming lowconductivity carbon char that act as a barrier between the fire and the substrate. This substantially decreases the temperature rise, smoke generation and finally insulates and protects the substrate from theheat of the flame.

The rating of fire retardant coatings depends on the intensity of the flame, type, coating thickness and other variables.More thickness of the coatings increases fire protection duration. The coating adheres tightly and fits to any size and shape of the substrate. It produces neat, attractive and paintable finish. The coatings are non-toxic, asbestos freeandresist cracking or crumbling.

Active Fire Protection Vs Passive Fire Protection :

Active Fire Protection

Methods that require a certain amount of motion and response in order to react to put out the fire by locating smoke, % ames or heat, eg. Smoke & Heat extraction systems, Sprinkler systems, Fire extinguisher systems, Gaseous cleanagents, Fire$ ghting foam.

Passive fire protection

Methods that contain, minimize the impact, or slow the spread of the fire. Contrary to active $ re protection the coating systembecomesan integral element of structural $ re protection and fire safety in buildings within a specified fire compartment aswell as ensuring that the load bearing capacity of the fire exposed structure is not reaching a critical level, the passive type does not need a response before reacting tothe fire eg. Intumescent coatings,Retardant coatings,Resistive coatings,Ablative coatings.

CABLE PROTECTION

FlameGuard CP


Intumescent fire protection coating for combustible single & bunched electrical cables and cable trays

FlameGuard CP is a water-based intumescent coating which is designed to prevent ignition, flame spread & smoke emission along the jacketing of electrical (or other) cables and to provide a thermal barrier for protection against heat damage. FlameGuard CP will also prevent a short circuit within an electrical cable from starting a fire and will help identify the location of such a short circuit by forming an intumescent char at the spot. The coating can be applied to grouped cables or single cables.When exposed to flame or to a temperature above 175ºC, the coating formsa protective intumescent char. (This char shouldberemovedcompletelyandclean cables should be recoated if intumescences should occur). The coating foams up under the effect of heat to form an insulating layer.There isnosubsequent burning of protectedcables after the directeffect of fire hasbeenhalted.

STRUCTURAL STEEL PROTECTION

FlameGuard ZP


FlameGuard ZP - Primer

Epoxy based zinc rich primer for fire protection coating for structural steel.Toprotect steel against corrosion&prepare the surface.

FlameGuard SSP - Base Coat

During fire when the structural steel temperature approaches 538°C it lose 60% of its yield strength andmay lead to the building collapse. FlameGuard SSP Base Coat – coated to desired thickness prevents steel structures from crossing the critical temperature of 538°C, thus delaying the collapse of loaded steel structures for up to 2 hours and providing time for evacuation & fire fighting. The smooth fibre free robust decorative surface allows the architect to use the structural steel work as an integral part of the building design. Rapid installation with typically DFT's below2mm, appearance of the structure is preserved without affecting the load bearing calculations. Incase of fire, the film expands tomany times its original film thickness.This provides an insulating foam-like coating or char toprotect steelwork againstheat build-upandthe effects of fire.

FlameGuard SSP - Top Coat

Thin film high solids intumescent coating provide maximum protection & enables a high quality finish to be obtained similar to conventional decorative paints.Ahard decorative self-extinguishing, fast drying finish to seal the basecoat & provide an attractive high quality finish. Recommended as a top coat over FlameGuard SSP Base Coat for optical reasons and moisture protection. The coating facilitates as sealer function to prevent early degradationandinactivation of intumescent layer.Available in variousRALshades.

FIRE COMPARTMENTATION AT ELECTRICAL & MECHANICAL SERVICE PENETRATIONS THROUGH WALLS, CEILINGS & FLOORS

FlameGuard EFM


Fire Stop Mortar for fire compartmentation by sealing service penetrations

When fire resisting compartments are created to contain fire and smoke from spreading within building structures, this also presents a parallel threat as most concealed activities between fire resisting walls and f loors are interlinked. The importance of sealing gaps in this type of construction is therefore vital to ensure the compartmentation systems work to their maximum ability to save life and property. Such gaps are typically at service penetrations through walls and floors, but also include gaps left for structural movement and gaps left due to poor workmanship. The integrity failure occurs when cracks, holes or openings occur through which flames or hot gases can pass. Insulation failure occurs when temperature rise on the unexposed surface of the service, on the unexposed face of the building element25mmfromthe penetration or the seal itself exceeds 180°C . FlameGuard EFMplaysanmajor role inmaintaining integrityandinsulation.

FlameGuard EFM Mortar is a fire rated load bearing system providing up to 4 hours (for 200 mm thickness) fire protection to compartment walls, ceilings and floors around large electrical and mechanical through service penetrations like HVAC ducts, plastic pipes, and where electrical services have been installed. Whilst curing, the mortar expands by approximately 1%ensuring a tight seal around penetrations and within the opening. It is designed to maintain the fire resistance of compartmentwalls and floors.When mixed withwater it can be poured or troweled into service penetration openings preventing the passage of flame, smoke and toxic gases for periods of up to 4 hours for 200mmthickness and thermally insulating f ire seal.Themortar is pre – mixed dry blend, consisting of inorganic fillersandfoamedperlite.
