PPG SteelguardPPG has launched PPG STEELGUARD 951 coating, an innovative epoxy intumescent fire protection coating designed to meet the demands of modern architectural steel, including up to three hours of cellulosic fire protection.

This new fire protection coating, based on PPG’s patented flexible epoxy technology, offers excellent durability and edge retention properties.

In a fire situation, the coating expands from a thin, lightweight film into a thick, foam-like layer that insulates the steel and maintains its structural integrity, providing more time for people to escape and limiting damage to buildings and assets.

PPG’s 951 coating also provides effective corrosion protection for very corrosive atmospheric environments up to ISO 12944 C5 without the need for a top coat, which also reduces project time and costs to achieve results. It can provide up to 3,500 microns dry film thickness in a single coat and cures rapidly, making it ready to handle the day after application.

“Structural steel plays a critical role in modern architecture by enabling buildings to meet specific fire protection and corrosion resistance according to their function,” said Richard Mann, PPG global product manager, passive fire protection, protective and marine coatings. “PPG Steelguard 951 coating is unique in combining an aesthetically-pleasing finish with high corrosion protection and, most importantly, the ability to maintain the steel’s stability in the event of a fire.”SteelGuard

The coating is based on PPG’s patented flexible epoxy technology, which offers excellent durability and edge retention properties, which reduces the risk of cracks caused during handling and transportation. It is tested in accordance with all recognized national and international fire and corrosion standards, including EN 13381-8, BS 476, ISO 12944, GB 51249 and GB 14907 (for specified environments).
