LICENSED PAINTING AND FIREPROOFING SPRAY APPLICATION OF NEW YORK / NEW JERSEY
Cementitious fireproofing can be gypsum, slag wool, portland cement, polystyrene, or vermiculite. If applied properly, the material sticks to the beam/column and hardens over time and acts as a strong layer of insulation against heat. We usually use Cafco 300/400 material, depending on the requirements or the customer. This type of material needs to be applied and fully adhered in temperatures above 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Paint can be sprayed, rolled, or brushed onto anything from interior walls and trim, exterior paneling or tiling, structures made of wood or steel, or even over fireproofing. We have industry and academic experience to tell what type of paint is right for the job and what the best method of application may be in order or the paint to look good and last for a long time.
Intumescent fireproofing is a type of fire-resistant paint that is mixed and sprayed onto steel beams with a specialized paint sprayer. When heat is applied, the intumescent sodium silicate expands significantly, forming a layer of insulation which slows down heat transfer to the material underneath. We usually use Cafco Spray Film WB 5 water based intumescent material which comes in five-gallon buckets.
We spray passive fireproofing onto exposed steel beams using specialized machinery and apply paint onto any type of surface. We complete initial construction, patchwork, renovations, and additions in New Jersey and the New York City metropolitan area. The term passive fireproofing references the material used to coat the structural steel of a building to reduce heat transfer to the steel during a fire. The thickness of the fireproofing on the steel must reach an hourly rating determined by the UL Fire Resistance Directory. This rating determines how long the structure will last when exposed to high temperatures. Fireproofing is generally applied by spray or by hand. The work of the fireproofing application specialist is verified by the fire inspector to meet the building code regulations. The construction project cannot safely continue until this code is met so fireproofing is a crucially timed step in the construction process. It may be necessary to spray some sort of bonding agent or primer onto the surface beforehand to ensure proper material adhesion. It is also necessary that the material being applied will properly dry and bond within its required temperature range and must ensure that the surrounding area is protected by plastic or other method so nothing will be damaged by any overspray.
