Unitherm Platinum Intumescent Paint
Sika’s Unitherm Platinum Intumescent paint is a simple yet effective way of protecting the internal structural steel of a building in the event of fire by prolonging the structural integrity either by 60, 90 or 120 minutes depending on the predetermined requirements. Passive fire protection coatings are reactive, meaning that when the Intumescent coating comes into contact with fire or extreme heat the coating starts to expand, producing a protective charcoal layer around the steel, preventing it from collapse.
Sika Unitherm Platinum is solvent-free, according to the Protective Coatings Directive of the German Paint Industry Association (VdL-RL 04) and complies with the quality requirements (level 4) of DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council).
Being solvent-free ensures Unitherm Platinum is an environmentally friendly product due to the minimal use of chemical reagents. Likewise, Unitherm Platinum is Halogen free meaning it’s free from harmful toxins, allowing us to easily apply the intumescent paint in-house.
Unitherm Platinum Complies with LEEDV4 and BREEAM Requirements
