Steel fire protection coatings at a glance
Steel fire protection coatings — Introduction
The design with steel is an essential element of modern architecture. Due to its high load-bearing capacity, this versatile building material enables far-reaching, exciting constructions that can be optimally integrated into building concepts and accentuate them in a targeted manner.
Safety aspects must always be taken into account during construction, which sometimes seem to contradict filigree architecture. Fire protection coating systems are perfectly suited to counteract this contradiction: With their corrosion and fire protection, they meet technical requirements and can simultaneously emphasize the aesthetic appearance of a steel construction.
Fire resistant coatings have been successfully used in the construction industry for over fifty years to minimize the negative effects of fire. The commitment of manufacturers and their achievements in the field of research and development as well as the optimization of application methods have contributed significantly over the past decades to the fact that the former “orange-peel” image of coatings is now almost forgotten. Thanks to the corresponding expertise of the manufacturers, good raw materials and experienced applicators, the highest quality surfaces can be achieved today.
