Leigh Paints

Fire protection coatings manufacturer Leighs Paints has developed what it touts as a “one-product solution” that provides fire protection for up to 120 minutes.

Two new coatings—Firetex FX1002 (for onsite application) and Firetex FX2002 (for shop application)—can provide a range of effective protection times for underlying steel, depending on the thickness applied, the manufacturer reports.

Variable Fire Rating

The company says the products simplify the fire estimation and specification process and reduce the risks involved during application. A higher fire rating can be achieved by increasing the amount of coating applied, rather than changing the product completely, which saves time and money, the company says.

“The improvements to FX1002 and FX2002 enable us to provide a competitive one-product solution, which can reduce process costs and improve stock management,”  said business manager Anthony Ward. “In an industry where time and price are so important, any reduction can give big advantages.”

He added: “Fire protection solutions are a great passion of Leighs Paints, and we continually work to develop our range to provide more competitive, cost-effective solutions for our customers.”

Firetex products have been used on 2012 Olympic structures, Heathrow T5, Bayer Leverkussens Bay Arena and the Shard of Glass in London, the manufacturer says.

Established in 1860, Leighs Paints is a UK-based independent manufacturer of high-performance coatings, employing over 250 people worldwide.
