Intumescent Coatings for Passive Fire Protection… ONE HOT TOPIC!

Keys to Proper Installation, A Case Study Failure
Investigation, and SSPC Training/Standards

Thick-film and thin-film intumescent coatings are frequently specified to protect the integrity of the steel during a fire event. They are commonly used in passive fire protection systems. Proper installation is paramount to achieving the specified fire rating and long-term performance. This one-hour presentation will feature three mini-topics all related to intumescent coatings, including various types and keys to proper installation (Steve Dobrosielski, J. B. Conomos, Inc.), a case study failure investigation (Jay Helsel, KTA-Tator, Inc.), and the associated SSPC training products (applicator & inspector) and standards (Michael Damiano, SSPC and
Bill Corbett, KTA-Tator, Inc.).
