We are the South’s leading Intumescent painting specialists. Our knowledgeable team can carry out Intumescent painting, and spray painting, on commercial and industrial projects of all sizes.
Intumescent painting is done in areas where fire safety is of importance. This can be either in a home, or work environment, an industrial unit or office space. Intumescent paints look just as a normal paint in terms of the finished look, but they are specifically constructed to expand in the presence of heat, and if burnt, they turn into high volume char. This makes them extremely useful as a fire retardant.
If a fire was to break out, the intumescent paint would heat up and burn. As it expands, it forms a carbon foam that will slow down the transference of heat. It is known that a 6mm thick coating of intumescent paint can expand to an inch of black foam when presented with fire. This increases the distance between the wall material and the fire, thus allowing a greater time before the fire will spread.
Elegant Decorating can provide this form of painting to any area where it is felt required.
