1 Hour Fire Intumescent Coating


Protect your property and the people in it. Applying fire intumescent coating or fireproof paint can minimize the risk and help prevent disaster.

An intumescent is a substance that swells as a result of heat exposure, thus increasing in volume and decreasing in density. Intumescents are typically used as passive fire protection. Intumescent coatings are the tried and tested way of protecting buildings and ultimately people’s lives against fire.


With over 25 years of experience in the painting and decorating trade, Murphy Bros Decorators can advise you on the right intumescent coating or fireproof paint for your property.


Water based fire intumescent coatings are often the preferred choice, given their environmental benefits. For more exposed environments a solvent-based fire intumescent coating will still perform well.

If a fire spreads in a building the intense heat will cause the steel to buckle and fail. Intumescent coating reacts against fire by expanding to form an insulating char layer up to fifty times thicker than the original paint thickness. Building regulations require you to protect structural steel against fire

Make sure you get the basics right! Play it safe, talk to Pat in Murphy Bros Decorators about your fire intumescent coating requirements.
