A guide to the requirements for protective coatings and intumescent coatings relating to International Standard (ISO) 12944 and Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP).

This is a talk related to understanding the relationship between corrosion protection and fire protection for steel structures. This will help members to have knowledge and confidence in detailing specifications for a structural steel frame, incorporating both corrosion protection and fire protection.

Very often the engineers are responsible for the corrosion protection and the architects responsible for the fire protection. On occasions, there is some confusion and contradiction between the two.

The talk will provide some background knowledge on protective coating types and how they provide corrosion protection and relating this to the ISO 12944 standard, corrosion protection of steel structures by Protective Coatings.

The talk will also show how intumescent coatings work and how they fit within the systems designed for the steel frame. It will explain the limitations for intumescent coatings and detail how they can be incorporated into the steel frame corrosion protection systems.
