Cementitious fireproof coatings on steel and sprayed polyurethane

What is fireproofing?

It is a process by which the steel structure of a building is covered with a fireproof coating. Buildings are made with flammable materials, and this technique allows their insulation against fire. Fireproofing is therefore an ideal way to protect your investment and increase safety inside the building.

Why apply a fireproof coating?

When a cementitious fireproof coating is applied on steel structures and polyurethane foam, it gives more time to evacuate the people inside the building in case of fire. As a matter of fact, fireproofing has the capacity to preserve the treated surfaces, or at least delay the effect of fire on important components of a building, such as bearing walls and beams.

Take for example a steel structure. The heat has the effect of decreasing its bearing capacity. At a certain temperature, it will deform and eventually collapse. By installing a fireproof coating, the steel will retain its hardness longer before starting to give.
