Timber Whitewash Intumescent Coating — up to Group 1-S on internal timber linings. Timber Whitewash is a halogen-free, waterborne, whitewash intumescent base coat designed for use on timber based substrates including solid timber, plywood, and timber veneers.
It foams into a thick layer when exposed to high temperatures derived from flames or intensive heat radiation from fire. The porous layer of foam effectively extinguishes the flow of heat to the coated surface.
Approved clear top coats can be used to seal for added durability when required. The Maintenance Guide and Application Instructions are available upon request from Fireshield.
