With the increased investment in infrastructure in India, Jotun is contributing to the quality and safety of the structures. The range of Passive Fire Protection products is developed to meet the challenging industry demands. Engineered to protect structural steel of public spaces like airports, hotels, train stations, metro stations, school buildings and stadiums.
For big structures like these, fire safety is crucial, and the implications of fire are tremendous; The loss of property, materials and time, but the most important of them all, the potential loss of lives.
All commonly used building materials lose their structural strength when exposed to effects of fire. Concrete can spall, crack or even explode. Steel will start to lose its structural strength at temperatures reaching 400°C. Without the right protection against fires or explosions, it can rapidly escalate and lead to loss of life or serious injury, catastrophic damage to assets, production interruptions or total shutdowns.
Jotun SteelMaster is a reactive fire protection system. The thin film intumescent coatings are specifically formulated to provide a chemical reaction upon heating, changing physical form to provide fire protection through a thermal insulation and cooling effect. Jotun SteelMaster is designed to protect against cellulosic fire anywhere between 30 minutes and 120 minutes. It will potentially contain fires or slow its spread, thereby providing time for people to be rescued and firefighters to extinguish the fire.
There are different industry standards for different type of structures and assets, and these present a unique set of challenges that PFP coatings must comply with.
Jotun SteelMaster – the reactive fire protection system
Our thin film intumescent coatings are specifically formulated to provide a chemical reaction upon heating, changing physical form to provide fire protection through a thermal insulation and cooling effect. SteelMaster products are designed to protect against cellulosic fire.
Jotun Jotachar a revolutionary range of mesh free fire protection
It is the industry’s next generation and first mesh free solution for hydrocarbon and jet fires. When exposed to a fire, Jotachar produces a robust and temperature stable insulating char. Installation time is significantly reduced and allows substantial savings in both the material and labor costs of a project.
