Global paints and coatings manufacturer Jotun has announced the release of its new mesh-free epoxy passive fire protection coating for the hydrocarbon processing and energy industries.

Jotachar 1709, the company says, was created using the technology platform behind its Jotachar JF750 product, which gave offshore and onshore industry operators and installers an alternate solution to avoid risks the associated with incorrect mesh installation.

The new Jotachar 1709 was specifically designed to protect steel against hydrocarbon pool fire scenarios for up to four hours, as defined within the ANSI/UL1709 Standard, according to the company.

Jotun's new Jotachar 1709 was specifically designed to protect steel against hydrocarbon pool fire scenarios for up to four hours, as defined within the ANSI/UL1709 Standard, according to the company.

The product also offers long-term corrosion protection, reduced life cycle costs and, as with the earlier product, the elimination of any risk associated with mesh installation errors, the company stated.

According to John Warner, Jotun Category Manager (Intumescent Coatings), the new product can be applied in a continuous application process.

“Our mesh free solution does not require additional welded pins, metal or fabric reinforcement, eliminating the need for complex mesh depth or overlap rules, reducing both material cost and installation time,” he said.

He added that it also does not require additional weather-proofing to prevent deterioration, nor is a topcoat required as part of the company’s UL1709 certification.
