Intumescent fireproofing

Intumescent coatings are unique, in that they're brand specific (meaning that a particular brand of coating will only conform with a particular brand of spray foam insulation). They are applied in "paint" form which, when exposed to flame or heat, will bubble up, swell into a foam-like material, and act as a flame-resistant barrier in order to detain ignition. Intumescent fireproof coatings have aesthetic appeal - they're considered decorative as they're perfect for exposed surfaces that need to look appealing, and are routinely applied to materials such as exposed steel decking, structural beams and siding systems.

Mineral fiber fireproofing

Mineral fiber fireproofing products consist of mineral wool fibers and a binder of either plaster or Portland cement. When introduced to water and applied, mineral fiber fireproofing insulates the protected area from temperature rise by limiting heat flow and achieving fire resistance for up to four hours. It's well suited for metal decking, steel joists and structural steel columns, in an interior or semi-exposed location. Products are available in standard and medium density for use in tempered and untempered indoor applications. In addition to insulating value and fire protection, mineral fiber fireproofing will also provide soundproofing. Contact Yvon Insulation today for a consultation in Guelph or surrounding areas!
