Jotun offers a range of specifically designed PFP coatings that meet a variety of industry requirements for cellulosic-, hydrocarbon pool- and jet fire protection, as well as thermal insulation.
All commonly used building materials lose integrity when exposed to the effects of fire. Concrete can spall, crack or even explode so that the reinforcement is exposed, which can lead to structural failure. Wood is easily depleted by charring, and steel will start to lose structural strength at temperatures reaching 400°C.
Regulations require that assets are designed and constructed so that their stability will be maintained for a reasonable period. A steel construction requires protection to ensure it does not collapse prematurely and provides time for occupants to escape and firefighters to extinguish the fire.
Without PFP, fires or explosions can rapidly escalate and lead to loss of life or serious injury, catastrophic damage to assets, production interruptions or even total shutdowns.
There are different industry standards for different type of structures and assets, and these present a unique set of challenges that PFP coatings must comply with. Jotun has a range of PFP coatings engineered to meet the industry standards - click on the products tab to learn more.
Jotun's PFP coatings are extensively and independently tested to the key industry standards.
Which type of PFP to use depends on the type of industry, structure, building materials, fire scenarios and how long the structural elements must retain their strength.
PFP coatings protect structural steel against cellulosic-, hydrocarbon pool- and jet fires:
Thin film PFP - for cellulosic fires
Thin film PFP coatings are typically used for structural steel in commercial and infrastructure projects such as bridges, commercial buildings, schools and airports. They can be solvent based or water-borne.

Thick film PFP coatings are typically epoxy based and used in the hydrocarbon processing industries and the offshore industry. They are subject to severe testing regimes.
