Structure protection (Fire protection)
In terms of the durability of our supporting structures, their comprehensive protection is important in order to ensure their function for as long as possible. This protection must be provided differently for each material, so different types of products must be used. The task of corrosion protection is to protect the metal from chemical degradation starting from the surface, i.e. to protect it from oxidation. In all cases, the protection starts with this layer on steel structures. This is followed by a fire protection solution in the case of a fire protection requirement, which can be a coating, mortar or covering board. Among these alternatives, we can choose according to the required fire resistance performance, the geometry of the structure and the aesthetic needs. The finishing layer of paint systems, the cover coating, can provide protection against environmental effects. In the case of wooden structures, a fire retardant ensures that the wood is classified in a more favorable fire protection class. The range of structural protection solutions is completed with mortars and boards that can be used for fire protection of reinforced concrete structures.

The main task of primer paints is to protect the steel structure against corrosion, which also ensures the adhesion of the next layer. The topcoats, as the top layer of the coating system, ensure the protection of the lower layers against external environmental influences, such as UV radiation, moisture, frost and air pollution. From an aesthetic point of view, this layer can be used to add color to the coated structure as needed.
Steel structure protection
We offer bot passive and reactive materials suitable for fire resistance requirements. Alternatives of the passive type of additional structural protection are board covering and mortar, which are suitable for ensuring high limit values. The shape following solution is the intumescent paint, which provides almost invisible protection, but in the event of a fire, it foams reactively and forms a carbon-based thermal insulation layer and prevents the heating of the structural element. Depending on fire resistance performance, profile section factor, profile shape and critical temperature, you can choose the optimal fire protection solution from our range. Part of the requirement, in addition to the specified time period, is what type of fire the structure needs to be protected against. Typically, the ISO834 standard, cellulose based fire curve is most often required, and a higher requirement is only necessary in industrial surroundings, when there is a risk of petrochemical fires. In such cases, it becomes necessary to use a product tested for the hydrocarbon fire development curve.

Wooden structure protection
In the case of wooden structures, the use of a fire retardant ensures that the wood is classified in a more favorable fire protection class. If there is a higher requirement for the material to be installed than the general fire protection classification of wood, i.e. D-s2, d0, then this can be improved to B-s2, d0 classification with a fire-retardant treatment. Our solvent-based or water-based material slows down the combustion with a foaming effect, thus preventing further combustion by forming a thermal insulation layer and physically blocking it from oxygen. Our company provides a solvent-based and a water-dilutable acrylate resin-based thermal foaming coating for this purpose.

Concrete structure protection
The fire protection properties of reinforced concrete structures are typically more favorable than those of steel or wooden structures. However, even after a change of functionality or a previously occured fire, it may still be necessary to provide an additional fire protection solution. In such cases, the thickness of the concrete covering protecting the steel reinforcement is increased with a layer of mortar or a covering board.
