What are intumescent coatings?
Intumescent coatings are fire-retardant coatings designed for use on aero engine and aerospace components. This includes fuel pumps and actuators, fireboxes etc. The paint is perfect for items manufactured from titanium, aluminium or other substrates; those that require protection from the effects of fire.
Using fire retardant coatings
You can use fire-retardant coatings in many different applications. For example, on parts and composite sub-assemblies of helicopter hatches and doors for Airbus EC135 and EC145. You can also paint many parts of aero engines including composites and control boxes with intumescent paint.
You can apply the coatings using either sprays or brushes. Then, you can air-dry to or force cure the components. The coating thickness can be as little as 1/10th of alternative intumescent coatings, providing weight savings, particularly on composite parts.
We have designed our intumescent coatings to be more resistant to high air movement and coating adhesion after being subject to flames or fire. It is usually applied as a system of primer or sealer (substrate dependent), intumescent coat and 2 component epoxy or polyurethane topcoat.
The intumescent coatings manufactured by Indestructible are:
