Advanced Thin-Film Intumescent Coating

Jotun’s new SteelMaster 600WF, an advanced thin-film intumescent coating, has been specially formulated to offer 60 minutes of sustainable fire protection for structural steel.

With these properties and more, the new coating is described by the manufacturer as easy to apply, cost efficient, and environmentally compliant.

Middle or Finish Coat

Developed as a reactive middle coat to offer full-passive fire protection, the product can also be used as a finish coat in atmospheric environments.

The company describes it as is the most cost-effective fire protector on the market, with less to apply and reduced application times.

Available worldwide, SteelMaster 600WF complies with independent qualification standards and helps meet environmental standards such as Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) under Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) 2009 and Environmental Quality (EQ) and Materials and Resources (MR) under LEED v4.

Value for Time, Money

John Warner, intumescent marketing manager at Jotun Paints, said the product ensures customers get value for time and money. 

“As SteelMaster 600WF is both cost and time effective, it means customers have both the economic advantages, as well as environmental and aesthetic benefits as a result of not having to cover up or hide steel structures to provide adequate fire protection,” Warner said.

Global SteelMaster projects already in existence include Cairo International Airport, Dubai Metro Station, and Selfridges Birmingham.
