Fire-protection coating systems for concrete structural elements

The water-based HENSOMASTIK® B 3000 (ablation product) and HENSOTHERM® 820 KS (intumescent) fire-protection coating systems can compensate for insufficient concrete cover after renovation work has been carried out. These products have particularly robust characteristics and are also suitable for use on reinforced concrete structural elements in areas with a high emission loading, such as in underground and multi-storey car parks, to give but one example. They help to improve the fire resistance when there is insufficient concrete cover. With structural elements made of reinforced concrete, for example hollow concrete ceilings, reinforced concrete beams and supports, reinforced concrete ribbed slab ceilings and reinforced concrete flat slab ceilings, then depending on the structural element in question and the quantity applied, fire-resistance times of up to 240 minutes are achieved; the application imposes hardly any structural loading, is space saving and requires no maintenance.
