Fire Protection

Life-saving protection from fires, cryogenic spills and corrosion

Fires, cryogenic spills and corrosion can all weaken structural steel, causing concern for the integrity of steel structures and the safety of personnel working in and around those structures

With our safety-first mentality, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine has been leading the industry to mitigate threats, and to protect and preserve lives with advanced fireproofing coatings and comprehensive specification support

Our FIRETEX® intumescent coatings provide critical passive fire protection, cryogenic spill protection and corrosion protection for the design life of steel assets – delivering up to four hours of fire protection on steel, based on the solution you choose – with the added benefit of an aesthetically-pleasing finish for exposed structural steel.

And whether you need basic support or fully fire engineered and optimized coatings specifications, our qualified Fire Engineering & Estimation Team (FEET) will deliver customized recommendations to comply with industry and asset owner specifications. Let’s get this critical conversation started.

Solutions for Your Industry

Cellulosic

FIRETEX® cellulosic intumescent coatings are designed to meet the highest performance, aesthetic and environmental demands of today's civil construction industry - helping extend the critical time to save people and structures. These solutions also provide a smooth, hard finish that enhances the aesthetic appeal of exposed structural steel surfaces.

Cryogenic

FIRETEX epoxy intumescent coatings deliver complete protection from the hazards of cryogenic liquified natural gas (LNG) spills on steel, with or without a subsequent hydrocarbon fire. FIRETEX M89/02 syntactic epoxy coating insulates the steel substrate so it maintains structural integrity on vessels, walkways or other support structures.

Hydrocarbon

Having undergone extensive independent fire testing, assessment and certification by Lloyd's Register, Det Norske Veritas, ABS and UL, our FIRETEX® intumescent coatings effectively mitigate the effects of jet fires, pool fires, boiling liquid expanding vapor explosions (BLEVEs), and blasts - with fire protection for the specified hourly rate, up to four hours.
