Environmentally friendly solution

Fontefire ST 60 offer now faster, safer and more economical fire protection solution to internal steelwork than other traditional methods and solvent-borne paints.

Competitive film thickness

Fontefire ST 60 forms a durable and attractive white surface. Due to its intumescent properties in a fire paint film expands to  many times its original film thickness. This provides an insulating foam to protect steelwork against heat build-up and effects of fire.

Proved versatile systems 

An approved intumescent coating system always requires a primer coat. The approved primers are Fontecryl AP, Fontecoat EP 50, Temaprime EUR, Temacoat GPL-S Primer and Temacoat Primer. The approved topcoats are Nova 20, Fontecryl SC 50, Temadur 50 and Temalac FD 50.

APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from contamination. The temperature of the ambient air, surface and paint should not fall below +15ºC during application and drying. Relative humidity of the air should not exceed 80% during application and drying. The surface temperature of the steel should remain at least 3ºC above the dew point. Good ventilation and sufficient air movement is required in confined areas during application and drying.
Preparation Primed surfaces: Oil, grease, salt and dirt are removed from the surface by appropriate means. Repair any damage to the primer coat. Note the overcoating time of primer. (ISO 12944-4)

Note: An approved intumescent coating system always requires a primer coat.
Priming Fontecryl AP (40µm), Fontecoat EP 50 (60µm), Temaprime EUR (40 µm), Temacoat GPL-S Primer (60 µm) and Temacoat Primer (60µm).
Finishing Nova 20, Fontecryl SC 50, Temadur 50 and Temalac FD 50 about 50–60 µm.
Painting Application by brush, roller or airless spray. Mix the paint thoroughly before use. Recommended dry film thickness is approximately 500 µm/layer. Diameter of the paint hoses should be at least 10mm, the length should not exceed 60m. Nozzle tip size 0.019"–0.025", turnable nozzle is recommended. Nozzle shall be chosen according to the efficiency and output of the equipment. Nozzle pressure 175–210 kg/cm2. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.

Application with roller and brush is typically 416 µm WFT (300 µm DFT).

Control of film thickness: Before overcoating should the dry film thickness of the coating be controlled with a reliable test method in accordance with ISO 19840 and a record should be drawn.

Special feature Packing and touch-up of damages: Components painted in work shop should be covered with a plastic film during transport and storage and packed in order to avoid impresses. During winter season components should be dried 48 hours in room temperature before taken outdoors. Damages shall be repaired immediately in the same way as originally.
Cleaning of tools Water.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount to 17 g/litre of paint.
