When a fire emergency occurs, good fireproof coatings can save lives and prevent a great deal of damage. At Amco Painting, we take this responsibility to heart, making sure that our fire-retardant coatings are installed properly.

What Are Intumescent Coatings?

Intumescent coatings are fire-retardant paints that change state when exposed to flame or excessive heat. Though these coatings appear just like normal paint, and come in a variety of colors and sheens, they decompose and puff up during a fire, creating a thick, spongy foam that slows the spread of fire and heat penetration.

During a fire, intumescent paint will protect structural steel, giving those in the building a longer time to escape and firefighters a longer time to fight the blaze before the stability of the edifice is compromised. Fire-retardant coatings can also be applied to wood, drywall, concrete and cinderblock walls. Additionally, they can be applied to ceiling tiles, lath & plaster ceilings, firestop doors, pipes, electrical cables and panels, tanks, vehicles and more.
