Hi, I have a little doubt about


I have a little doubt about UL method in the fire protection of steel. Is this so-called UL method costlier than the normal BS grade fire rating? Can somebody just explain how is this?

RE: Hi, I have a little doubt about

Are you talking about an intumescent coating? They are costly, but, work well. Usually where exposed visually.

I'm at a loss about normal BS grade fire rating.


RE: Hi, I have a little doubt about

Yes, intumescent coating. Do u have any idea about the rates for coating as per UL standards being higher than the BS one?

RE: Hi, I have a little doubt about

I have no idea about what the BS one is. I've got a couple of articles on intumescent coating... I'll see if I can dig them up... last article was quite positive about them.
