Water-based Coating

When a fire strikes, seconds can translate into many lives saved or lost. Unprotected steel can reach critical temperatures that cause the structure to lose stability, resulting in entire buildings to rapidly collapse.

Because of the great risks involved, public buildings and many commercial and residential buildings use an intumescent coating to protect the critical steel structure. Intumescent coatings provide that vital extra time needed to help people escape and allow fire fighters to save the building itself.

Solvent-based intumescent coatings were a traditional option, but as growing concerns for health and safety mount around these solvent-based coatings, contractors and builders look for new, high performance water-based solutions that can meet stringent fire safety codes while also reducing environmental and health risks.

Nofia flame retardants are proven to slow the temperature ramp up and form a uniform thick char to protect steel structures. For safety officials and builders, this means increased escape times and thus higher chances to save lives and assets.


  • Protects building structures against fast distortion from fire

  • Slower temperature ramp-up

    • Providing a longer escape time and ultimatly helping to save lives and protect assets

  • Can be used in water- and solvent-based coatings

  • Thicker, stronger, uniform char forming

  • Enables thinner coating and thus added cost savings

  • With the ability to meet stringent FR standards at thinner coatings, end users also experience added cost savings. 


  • Intumscent coating for Cellulosic Fire Protection

  • Intumscent coating for Hydrocarbon passive Fire Protection

Target Polymer Systems

  • Epoxies

  • Unsaturated Polyesters

  • Ethylvinylacetate (EVA)

  • Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU)
