Flamex I C Intumescent Paint



Flamex I C is water based intumescent fire retardant polymer coating for interior and exterior (top coating required) applications. When subjected to fire, it swells 60 to 100 times than that of its original thickness forming a stable and inert carboneous char, which forms a physical barrier between the flame and the substrate. This char thermally insulates the substrate from heat and stops the availability of oxygen required for fire initiation. It provides fire protection to most metallic and non-metallic substrates. It provides effective heat shield and insulation to the substrates.


Surface Preparation

No special surface preparation is required. The surface should be clean and dry, free of dirt, oil, loose scales or paint and other foreign matter. On porous surfaces or flaky rusty surfaces, loose flakes and / or rusty scales must be removed by scraping and a proper surface suitable for application of the coating restored. Coating on the primed surfaces must be sanded and / or primed or removed prior to painting. Apply one coat of Zinc Phosphate Primer and allow it to dry for 24 hours.


Application Procedure

Due to possible settling of pigments during shipping and storage, the product should be thoroughly mixed. Do not mix water into the paint. If at all required, water to the tune of 5% maximum can be added. Apply a coat of Flamex I C liberally so that dry film thickness of 250 microns is achieved and allow it to cure for 24 hours. Apply second coat of @ 250 microns dry film thickness and allow the same to dry. The total DFT should be 500 microns minimum. Apply sealing coat of appropriate paint.



Flamex I C can be top-coated with latex paints or two-component polyurethane paints for exterior Applications as per end use.
