Commercial & Industrial Fireproof Painting in NJ, NY & PA
Fires can be devastating, destroying everything in their path within minutes and causing tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage. While having a sprinkler system and smoke detector is a great first step in securing fire safety, fireproof paint is a crucial addition to your building’s fireproofing strategy – every little bit can make a difference in the safety of your property.
Fireproof paint is a critical line of defense in the event of a fire, and will prevent fire and smoke from rapidly spreading. Fireproofing provides structures and materials with resistance to fire and combustibility according to fire-resistance ratings and standards.

Fire-Resistant Paint FAQs
What Is the Purpose of an Intumescent Coating?
Intumescent coatings, often referred to as intumescent paint, are used as a passive fire resistance measure. They are commonly applied to structural members as an aesthetically pleasing fire-rated paint.
How Is Intumescent Paint Applied?
The paint product is applied to the structural steel in layers to generate a thickness that corresponds to the level of protection mandated by the building code. Intumescent coatings expand when under excessive heat and act as an insulator that keeps the high temperatures away from structural members or protected openings.
How Is Cementitious Fireproofing Applied?
Cementitious fireproofing or wet mix fireproofing is mixed with water and pumped under pressure through a spray gun. The wet slurry is then sprayed onto the structural beams. Cementitious fireproofing is relatively inexpensive and can be a smart solution for dry environments where the substrate is not expected to be exposed to heavy vibrations or impact.
