Nullifire, the UK market leader in passive fire coatings technology, has developed two new ground breaking products under the banner of the SC900 series.
Unlike traditional water-based intumescent coatings specified to protect structural steelwork, the SC900 series can be applied in a single coat of up to 6.5mm thickness. Reducing application and drying times by over 60% compared to similar systems that require multiple applications, the same 120 minute fire protection is achieved; but allowing following works to commence far quicker.
SC901 has been developed for off-site fabricators and is touch dry within one hour; crucially it is transportable in just eight hours, thus freeing up valuable workspace within the factory, while accelerating the overall production process.
SC902, meanwhile, has been formulated for utilizing on-site, where the one-coat application becomes weather resistant within one hour. Effectively the new Nullifire system can take days off the critical path for constructing steel framed structures. From a health and safety angle, less time is also spent working at height, cutting the risk of accidents.
Commenting on the product launch, John Gordon, General Manager at Nullifire, said: “These new products represent the next generation in fire protection technology. Feedback from both clients and main contractors has been phenomenal as they grasp the time and cost savings that they can make on their projects.”
