3 ‘S’ FIRE RETARDING PAINT
At the outset we should like to make it clear, that Fire Retarding Paint, as the name suggest delay of retards the propagation of fire. These paints in no case act as fire extinguisher.
To understand the properties expected of Fire Retarding Paint, we must first know how flame burns. During burning you need a material that can support the fire and secondly you need oxygen to sustain the flame. If the substrate is metallic, naturally it is not going to catch fire. If it is wooden material or certain polymeric, natural or synthetic material, it will sustain the fire.
The basic composition of the material in the Fire Retarding Paint is Polymeric Resin, which contain chlorine group on their chain length. These chloride groups do not support the process of burning. As every one knows carbon dioxide is another gas which does not support combustion. Therefore, if we combine material like chlorinated synthetic resin along with certain carbonates which will liberate CO2 on heating one can formulate Fire Retarding Paint. There are certain oils or other material which will expand to a greater degree when heated such material are also incorporated in Fire Retarding Paint.
These materials when heated expand to such extent that spread of fire is controlled to great extent and you get extra additional time to extinguish the fire. The use of these types of paints becomes essential when you need very high degree of safety
