DEMONSTRATION OF INNOVATIVE FIRE PROTECTION COATINGS FOR STEEL STRUCTURES

Objective

Current methods to provide fire protection of light steel structures lack performance and has resulted in a decrease in structural steel market share. State-of-the-art intumescent coatings (ICs) is not a robust technology due to extensive coating and drying times, and low fire resistance (FR) values. There have not been any innovative solutions to overcome such problems in the last few years, resulting in a progressive decline in the demand for steel structures.

The FP7-SME-2008-2-STEELPROST Research Programme provided a solution to current surface treatment limitations by developing a second generation of fire-protective coatings. Now, it is necessary to industrially validate a final integrated system via STEELPROST Demonstration Project. It represents a significant step from R&D through to validation, certification and manufacturing a prototype. The Demo Project will focus on validation and certification of procedures to manufacture ICs, certification of the ICs, building a group of demonstrators for the use of ICs on real designs, obtaining CE Marking for the overall steelwork construction and developing spraying system prototype to reduce cost & ensure best quality.
