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.
