Grace Construction Products has rolled out a new spray-applied fireproofing material that meets the latest bond strength requirements of the International Building Code.
 
Monokote MK-10 HB has been designed to obtain bond strengths in excess of 430 psf, making it compliant with the 2006 IBC building requirements for bond strength for buildings between 75 and 420 feet tall.

 The new product is the latest addition to Grace Construction Products’ line of Monokote Fireproofing products.

The significant changes to the bond strength requirements first published in the 2007 addendum to the 2006 IBC should be considered for any buildings in those jurisdictions that have adopted the 2006, or later, versions of the IBC, the manufacturer notes.

The bond strength requirements are summarized here:

Minumim Bond Strength

 BUILDING HEIGHT A  SFRM MINIMUM BOND STRENGTH
 0 to 74 feet  150 psf
 75 to 420 feet  430 psf
 Greater than 420 feet  1,000 psf

A: Above the lowest level of fire department vehicle access

The complete code language can be found in the 2009 IBC in section 403.2.4 – Sprayed Fire-Resistive Materials (SFRM).

Features and Specifications

“The capability of meeting the bond strength requirements with a high-yielding spray-applied fire-resistant material makes Monokote MK-10 HB a cost effective option,” the manufacturer says.

 Monokote MK-10 HB complies with the 2006 IBC building requirements for bond strength for buildings between 75 and 420 feet tall.

Monokote MK-10 HB is a single component, spray applied, mill-mixed fire resistive plaster. MK-10 HB has approval for use on structural steel members and fluted decking to provide up to four hours of fire protection, and on flat plate cellular decking for up to three hours with the company’s Spatterkote SK-3 product.
