Effect of metal fire retardants on fire resistance and operational characteristics of intumescent fire-protective coating for wood

Main Article Content

Varvara Drizhd


Fire-protective properties for wood (according to GOST 16363) and hiding power (according to ISO 6504-3) were tested for eighteen samples of intumescent coatings with various combinations and ratios of metal-containing fire-retardant additives in order to distinguish the optimal metal fire retardant for future use in designing the formulation and technological scheme for production of intumescent fire-protective coating with enhanced operational characteristics.
