Why is intumescent paint important in New Mexico? It is paint that expands when heated rather than catching fire. This is why it is considered a form of fireproof paint. It doesn’t react to fire until it is 248 degrees Fahrenheit, and even then it doesn’t catch fire. It begins to expand and create a layer of soft char that lowers the temperature and it releases moisture which further reduces the temperature. This type of passive fire protection is part of a well-rounded approach to fire safety. New Mexico businesses should consider WBS Coatings as a valuable partner in the constant fight against fire.

Sprayed Fire Resistive Material (SFRM) such as intumescent paint, more commonly known as fireproof paint, is a type of passive protection against fires. One of the most important functions of fireproofing spray in protecting your New Mexico business is the protection of concrete or steel structures during a fire. This protection helps ensure concrete and steel stay cool during a fire and are less likely to fail under pressure. New Mexico can be a very dry place at times and with the heat, it helps to have paint that can withstand such extreme temperatures. This helps the paint last longer with less fading, cracking, chipping, or peeling.
