Fontefire ST 60 - Intumescent fire protection for steelwork
Fontefire ST 60 - CE marked (ETA 15/0442)
Fontefire ST 60 is CE marked and it has very low VOC. Maximum wet film thickness is 1.2 mm in a single spray coat. With roller and brush wet film thickness is typically 416 µm. The product provides competitive loadings.
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.
PRODUCT DATA SHEET
Fontefire ST 60 - Intumescent coating - NEW!
|DESCRIPTION||A water-borne one-component intumescent coating. When subjected to heat it expands and forms an insulating layer of foam.|
|PRODUCT FEATURES||Used as a fire retardant paint on internal conditions Z2 for steel structures .|
|Recommended uses||Recommended to be applied on-site during dry conditions. Components painted in workshops must be topcoated before taken outdoors.|
|Features||Product can provide up to 90 minutes fire resistance.|
Maximum wet film thickness is 1.2 mm in a single spray coat. Practical coverage depends on the application method, painting conditions and the shape and roughness of the surface to be coated.
|Application method||Application by brush, roller or airless spray.|
Drying and recoating times are related to the film thickness, temperature, the relative humidity of the air and ventilation.
|Solids volume||72 ± 2% volume
74 ± 2% weight
|Density||1.4 kg / l|
|Storage||6 months in dry and cool conditions.|
|Product code||006 6760|
|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.
