Zenova Fp - Fire Protection Paint

ZENOVA FP - Intumescent Paint

Also known as thermofoaming paint or Intumescent Paint, ZENOVA FP is a fire-resistant water-based paint that prevents the ignition and spread of fire. 

As a result of being exposed to heat, the intumescent paint swells and creates a light char foam, increasing in volume and decreasing in density. The heat transfer from the flames to the substrate is thereby greatly diminished. Treated materials become isolated from elements that maintain fire combustion since the paint turns into an insulating protective membrane.

Two kitchens were set on fire. The walls and ceiling of one kitchen were painted with Zenova FP fire protection paint. The benefits are clear.

A like for like test with a large global brand of fire retardent paint clearly shows a significant differance in performance.
