Passive Fire Protection for PVC and Plastics

Global Fireproof Solutions' Certified Applications of Intumescent Coatings not only prevent the spread of fire on plastic and fiberglass substrates, but can reduce toxic smoke by over 80%. In some cases fumes from burning PVC or other plastic building materials can cause loss of conciousness, changing an already costly and damaging fire into a tragic loss of life. When an Intumescent Coating is applied to plastic and fiberglass type substrates, it will greatly reduces and even stop the development of toxic smoke from these substrates in case of fire. This gives building occupants an extra window of time to evacuate.
