Next Generation Ultra Fast-Drying Intumescent Coating

Introducing Firetex FX6002 — the next generation Sherwin-Williams’ patented intumescent coating technology. Firetex FX6002 has been designed as an ultra-fast drying intumescent to significantly increase productivity when applying fire protection. To put it simply, it dries in one hour, thus saving time and money.


Firetex FX6002 has been formulated to provide protection across a wide range of steel with a competitive fire rating solution up to 120 minutes. It provides up to 20 years durability with an appropriate topcoat and can resist weather conditions up to six months without a topcoat during the construction phase.

Aesthetics and sustainability

Firetex FX6002 provides an attractive and easy-to-apply finish, helping designers to obtain aesthetically pleasing fire protection to exposed structural steel surfaces. Importantly, it is very low on the VOC scale at 24 gm/l.

Fast-track construction

The ultra-fast drying time of Firetex FX6002 removes drying “bottlenecks” for both on-site and off-site and ultimately contributes to fast track construction efficiencies and time savings by allowing other trades to operate quickly after the coating application process. See how Firetex compares to other intumescent coatings.

Through a unique combination of high durability, efficiency of installation and aesthetic benefits, the coating can be used to meet intumescent requirements for a wide range of projects.
