Fireshield Ultra Universal Intumescent Basecoat is a single pack solvent-based intumescent coating for fire protection of both internal and external structural steelwork.
A very pale green in colour, Fireshield Ultra Universal can provide 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes of fire protection and is ideal for winter/ low temperature application. It is suitable for both interior and exterior steel and is fully fire tested to BS476: Parts 20 & 21.
Fireshield Ultra Universal should be applied onto a clean, undamaged, dry and suitably primed steel surface. Certain types of primers can cause adhesion problems and should be avoided. These include: Chlorinated rubbers and Bitumen. Galvanized surfaces should be prepared by an application of T-wash or mordant solution followed by a compatible primer. If a zinc rich primer is used, it is advisable to seal this with a suitable tie coat prior to shipment to site. Please consult our technical enquiries team for advice when over-coating existing paint surfaces.
