Fire Prevention (FP) Coatings
NTST has developed ceramic based non-intumescent coating systems to mitigate the hazard of fire for any underlying material.
Successful thermal experimentation (i.e. continuous 15-20 minute tests at 1710F) on the FP coatings involved using a combustion torch with the flame perpendicular to the substrate hot spot. This is illustrated in Figure 1.
The NTST FP coating systems meet durability standards for moisture exposure (e.g. see Figure 2); and, can be applied to any material (e.g. wood, oriented strand board, or metal (i.e. Figure 3)).
The FP coating systems are more economically priced than any other fire prevention coating system in the current market. The FP coatings are friendly to the environment, and have the potential of being marketed as a green fire protective coating solutions. The coating materials are inert, non-toxic, odorless, and can be washed down the sink.
