▼ Five FAQ of fireproof coating

Why using dipentaerythritol instead of pentaerythritol as char-forming agent in water-based fireproof coating?
Dipentaerythritol has better water solubility than pentaerythritol, will not have issues of crystallization or precipitation from coating.

Why water-based fireproof coating can’t add calcium carbonate?
Fillings like heavy calcium powder, calcium carbonate will seriously effect foaming ratio and fireproof property;
They will have chemical reaction with weak acids of formulation, resulted in many CO bubbles that’s not easy to break, then lead to paint film effects like pinholes ect.


Why water-based fireproof coating can’t add magnesium hydrate or zinc powder?
Magnesium hydrate is a kind of alkali,will have reaction with ammonium polyphosphate. Make fireproof coating losing fireproof property;
Zinc power have the same reaction.


Why water-based fireproof coating can’t use sodium salt?
Alkali salt will have reaction with certain ingredients of formulation, lead to more bubbles, high viscosity, paint pinholes ect, make fireproof coating lose fireproof property.

Why fireproof coating can’t use low degree APP?
Low polymerization APP have high water solubility, poor water resistancy and fast hydrolysis;
Low degree APP will hydrolyze to polyphosphoric acid. metaphosphoric acid and release ammonia, at the same time, viscosity deduction, may forming solid bottom, lose fireproof property;
Low degree APP will easily precipitate from coating, make paint whitening,bubbling or even dropping off;
Coating made with low drgree APP have poor weather resistancy, will have film efflorescence,film breaking,dropping off ect after hydrolysis.

In homes, office and public buildings, if there is the building material without protection, once breaking out of fire, the building material such as steel structures, metal sheets, wood, plaster and concrete will gradually lose intensity and become easy to collapse. However, if these building material are coated with special coating, then the heat would be blocked, which will lengthen the survival time.>>>

Flame retardant for texile.

According to the research on the fire causes, improper textile will help fire spread. Now in the world, there have been the fire protection requirements regulated indomestic and foreign standard. Different end use of textile complies with different flame retardant requirements. For example, in USA, the textiles used in the automotive component must pass FMVSS 302. In Europe, the textile used in building must satisfy ISO 13501. Therefore, it will be wise to choose the flame retardant based on the textile’s end uses.>>>

Flame retardant for potting material.

Fireproof sealing and potting material are widely used in construction, electric and electronics, Flame retardant can extend the ignited time of the material and maximum inhibit the flame spreading speed.

Flame retardants for plastics.

Nowadays, plastic has been to the indispensable part in our life, and due to the potential risk of fires, there is the wide needs on flame retardancy .Generally speaking, flame retardants used in these applications may obviously reduce the heat deflection temperature of the plastic and take effect on other properties like mechanical properties and electrical properties. Presafer flame retardants not only has high efficiency but also take other properties into consideration.>>>
