ASTRO ISS Paint is an intumescent coating for steel, a thin decorative fireproof paint system providing fire resistance to structural steel and cast iron.
Heat from a fire triggers a catalytic reaction causing intumescence (expansion) of an insulating char layer up to 50 times the paint film thickness. This char keeps the steel below critical temperature to maintain the structural stability of the building.
Fire resistance of ½ hour and 1hour can be achieved with a single application of ASTRO ISS Paint.
A range of hard, high quality, weather resistant decorative finishes matches the decor, architectural or historic features of a building while helping to make it a safer structure.
Non decorative..... N/A - For dry, hidden areas only.
