Glo-Protect Intumescent Coating
Intumescent Fire-retardant Paint
Glo-Protek Intumescent Coatingis an intumescent fire-retardant 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, spongelike cellular foam layer over 100 times thicker than the original paint film. This foam layer insulates the substrate from the heat of the flame, thus retarding flame spread and minimising / delaying structural failure.
Can be used on Interior and Exterior Surfaces (with a top coat)
- Excellent adhesion to any substrate
- Resistant to industrial / corrosive atmosphere
- Good hardness yet flexible

Flammable liquid & vapour. Contains solvents & petroleum distillates. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Vapours may cause flash fire. Do not smoke. Extinguish all flames and other sources of ignition during application and until all vapours are gone. Prevent buildup of vapours by opening all windows and doors to achieve cross-ventilation.
If you experience difficulty in breathing. Leave the area to obtain fresh air. If continued difficulty is experienced, get medical assistance immediately. In case of eye contact, flush immediately with plenty of water for atleast 15 minutes and get medical attention. For skin, wash thoroughly with soap and water. If swallowed, get medical attention immediately
