Product Description
Protect Steel Surfaces from FireIn a single product are combined the virtues of water borne technology, simplified coverage rates and efficient fire protection.
An intumescent paint that provides 30 and 60 minutes fire protection on standard steel sizes and profiles - quick & easy application, fast drying times, water based. Ideal for smaller jobs, easy to use with simplified coverage rates and certificate application.

Fire Protection Simplified
Aquasteel WB+ provides up to 1 hour fire resistance on all standard steel sizes and profiles. It can be applied by conventional methods and does not require specialist equipment.
Aquasteel WB+ is suitable for use in environmentally stable, dry internal locations without a sealer coat. In areas subject to wetting or severe condensation or where a coloured finish is required, a compatible top seal should be applied.

Instant Certificates
Aquasteel WB+ is white and is supplied in 2.5lt, 5lt & 10 litre containers, each of which is labelled with full instructions, including a Certificate Application Form. Certificates should always be obtained to authenticate the application and fire rating of the product at each site where it is used.

Specification
Priming: Structural steel should always be prepared and primed with an anti-corrosion primer, preparation being to the primer manufacturers specification. The choice of primer is dependent on the environmental conditions applying on the site. Most anti-corrosion primers are compatible with Aquasteel WB+, with the following exceptions:
Chlorinated Rubber
Thermoplastic
Bitumen based

Aquasteel WB+ may be applied over galvanising, zinc rich or zinc powder primers provided a suitable tie coat is first applied. To provide a suitable base for Aquasteel WB+, primers should not exceed 100 microns dry film thickness.
