5 things you need to know about SteelMaster 600WF

Jotun’s SteelMaster 600WF is a specially formulated, waterborne, fully LEED compliant, thin film intumescent coating. This is what you need to know about the product.

Developed by Jotun’s expert chemists, SteelMaster 600WF, uses a one-component waterborne acrylic thin film intumescent coating that has been independently approved for fire protection of structural steel when exposed to cellulosic fire.

1. SteelMaster 600WF can offer you up to 60 minutes fire protection for your building

Specially designed as passive fire protection for steel constructions. SteelMaster 600WF is suitable for structural steel exposed to internal environments up to C3 corrosive category. As the most competitive waterborne offering on the market, SteelMaster 600WF, can protect a structure for up to 60 minutes without the need to hide cover the structure, letting the design shine through.

2. The new waterborne coating can achieve quicker application by airspray, for less

SteelMaster 600WF has a lower thickness requirement which means a thinner layer can be applied to achieve a 60 minute fire protection. This not only saves time in application, but saves money, as clients don’t need to buy as much. Jotun’s understanding of the challenges and needs of their clients, with time and budgets at the core of the modern construction industry, led to the development of the technology. In addition, SteelMaster 600WF meets approved industry standards, is readily available and of consistent high quality.

3. It’s waterborne

Jotun’s commitment to developing SteelMaster 600WF as a water-rather-than-solvent-based product alternative has resulted in lowering the levels of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) to the minimum. VOCs are harmful chemicals that give off gas causing damage to human health and the ozone layer. This means that when considering and choosing SteelMaster 600WF, you are selecting materials that help reduce carbon emissions.

4. It removes smelly emissions

Designed as a low odour coating, SteelMaster 600WF smells less offensive than other products. By moving to a waterborne product, SteelMaster 600WF removes the solvents from the paint and removes harmful odours that can be dangerous when working in confined spaces.
