New fire-retardant paint system

Tikkurila’s new fire-retardant paint system improves the safety of industrially painted wood buildings as the facades can be topcoated not only once but twice and they still have the best possible reaction to fire classification for wood.

The paint system consists of “Fontefire WF” water-borne intumescent fire-retardant coating and two new water-borne and tintable paints: “Ultra Pro WF-M intermediate coat” and “Ultra Pro WF 10 topcoat”. The new fire-retardant paint system protects the exterior cladding against fire and in addition, the intermediate coat and topcoat together gives the facade long-term protection against weathering, moisture, sunlight and dirt. The effectiveness of an intumescent fire-retardant paint is based on a chemical reaction: when the paint is exposed to fire, it expands and forms an insulating layer of foam that slows down the flame propagation.
