Glo-Protect Fire-Rating Coat
Glo-Protek Fire-Rating Coat is general purpose fire-rating paint that not only retards the spread of fire, it also insulates the substrate from the intense heat of a fire. This coating dries quickly to a flat matt finish having the appearance of conventional matt finish paint.
On contact with fire or excessive heat, the paint puffs up (intumesces), forming a thick, sponge-like cellular foam layer over much thicker than the original paint film. This foam layer insulates the substrate from the heat of the flame, thus retarding the flame spread and minimising / delaying structural failure.
Can be used on Interior and Exterior Surfaces.
- Excellent adhesion to any substrate
- Resistant to industrial / corrosive atmosphere
- Good hardness yet flexible
