FiroShield, innovation against fire and corrosion

An interdisciplinary team of scientists from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) and the Singapore JTC industrial company, developed a coating material called FiroShield.

Made with a combination of chemical additives (synthetic resins based on polymers and endothermic chemicals) it can perfectly protect the steel against fire and corrosion. According to a press release of the institution, the material, though slightly more expensive than the average, is far less demanding in terms of manpower and with a minimum application of five layers of coating, will give a steel structure two hours of protection against the collapse in a fire.

"In a fire, our jacket forms a compact protective layer that acts as a barrier against the heat," said Assistant Professor of Aravind Dasari School of Science and Engineering at NTU Singapore. "What we wanted to achieve was an innovative coating that would work differently from conventional coatings and could stay attached to steel as long as possible, even at high temperatures."

FiroShield offers "assorted colors, in fact the pigments can be added to the mixture in order to obtain the aesthetic appearance of the normal paint". This allows paint manufacturers to use FiroShield in their products.
