    Thanks for the link Chief. I'll check that out.

    FWD I have a customer who is looking to fireproof or fire resist their urethane piping due to two fires they have had. This piping is in a coal preparation plant so of course the coal is flammable under the right conditions. The two fires they have had were started due to human error however the main components that burned was urethane. This customer has reached out to us in hopes of finding something that they could "paint" on to reduce the chance of the fire spreading. As you can imagine, the urethane burning was extremely hot and smokey. I think the biggest problem is finding something that will stick to the slick and oily feeling urethane.

    Any other ideas are welcome.
    Sounds to me like all the fireproof "paint" in the world would not work under the circumstances you described. Why not look into spray-on coatings used for steel beams?????

    what these products do is char. Char in and of itself is protective of material under it, so if the char is protecting it, it doesn't burn and the flames don't spread.

    Coal is not flammable. It is combustiable but not flammable.

    There is also a clear spray-on fire retarding chemical that I have made tenants use during tenant fit-outs of retail spaces. Usually it involves a decorative wall material that does not meet the requirements of ASTM E84.....Perfect example- people that are building these "Tiki Hut" bars inside a building. If they can't prove the palm leaves meet the requirements, I make the builder or tenant treat them with the spray-on chemical.

    I have to ask Merlin, under what application is the urethane piping being used and why do you have to treat it????? Almost sounds like this could be a case of a Building Inspector who is "feeling his oats."

    I believe you are thinking of intumescent paint. That type of paint forms a protective coating under high heat conditions.

    Here's a link that may help...

    Scroll down and look under "flame control"

    Spray on fireproofing question

    Good day everyone,

    I'm looking for a bit of information about a spray on fireproofing that can be applied to reduce fire spread. I remember seeing something several years ago that was being pushed for treatment of the studs etc. in building construction but I can't remember the name.

    I am looking for a product that can be sprayed on urethane piping. The urethane will have to be prepped so that the "paint" will stick first due to the oily slick nature of the material. Due to area and volume required, I would like something that is spray-able but at this point I'll take just about anything.

    If anyone knows of any such product I would appreciate the information. Thanks for your help.
