Fire decorative coatings have many applications, either as fire protection, to decorate and protect the areas around fireplaces, in kitchens, barbecues, etc.
Within the fire protection we can distinguish two types: the active protection, which is helping to extinguish the fire that has already begun, and passive protection, which is what prevents the occurrence of the fire situation or minimize their effects.
The passive protective coatings have added materials that prevent the initiation of fire spread, and especially fire fighting intumescences (formation of a critical mass of coal); these elements have a coefficient of thermal transmission very low, running as insulating substrate.
Treating the coatings against fire:
These coatings are made of materials with additions of special substances that require some care in use:
Do not release chemicals, solvents, water or cleaning flower beds, etc. on the surface of these coatings, and that could affect the nature of their materials.
Avoid bumps and scratches. In case of defects observed on the protected area is determined the origin of the damage and fix it, so you do not lose their qualities.
These coatings do not support the placement of foreign material such as tacos, etc., that may cause damage to surface or layer of mortar.
Fire decorative coatings come in various materials to suit the needs of each room both decorative finishes and materials, as in the type of coating and its use, the availability of colors and fits generous spaces and textures of the environments in which they are installed.
