Sherwin-Williams has unveiled a new coating option for fire protection of structural steel in civil construction in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Firetex FX5062 offers protection for up to 60 minutes, providing greater design flexibility and lower loadings across a diverse range of steel sections, according to the manufacturer.

Firetex FX5062 reportedly offers protection to structural steel for up to 60 minutes.

Developed for on-site application, the water-based thin-film intumescent coating can be applied as a high-build single coat, designed for use in dry controlled environments without top coats, meeting the requirements of ISO 12944-2: 2007. It can also be used in semi-controlled environments with a top coat to ISO 12944-2: 2007.

Accreditations include Certifire and the recently revised ASFP Yellow Book Rev 5, including the fire testing protocol for cellular beam protection, the company says.

“The research and development, testing and certification behind this technology enables greater flexibility of loadings for complex steel structures," said Rick Perkins, of Sherwin Williams Protective & Marine Coatings EMEA.

“The high build and ease of application mean there are real benefits with less downtime for project construction and maintenance of these structures when necessary.”

My European Clients insist uponn water based coatings. I hope they get this listed in Germany. Fireproofing costs a fortune over there and is usually not done retro-actively.
