EP/CP White Intumescent Coating is a white, fire-resistant coating system, offering fire protection to plasterboard or lath-and-plaster ceilings and walls of various thicknesses. Provides an excellent solution for projects where plasterboard features are in need of fire rating but cannot be replaced, as is often the case in listed buildings. When attacked by fire, the intumescent material protects the integrity and insulation of the coated surface.
Application Rate 8m2 per litre per coat: 1 litre will cover 4m2
– Designed for application to 9½mm or 12½mm thick plasterboard FOR WALLS ONLY, 18mm & thicker lath-and-plaster, or concrete walls and ceilings, providing 1 hour of integrity and insulation
– Can be used to protect and insulate concrete and also insulate steelwork within a layer of concrete
– Dries to a smooth or stippled decorative finish
– An ideal solution for upgrading the fire rating of original features in Graded historical buildings
Clean all walls or ceilings, taking off any loose paint and removing all wall or ceiling paper. Any grooves or cracks in the ceiling or walls can be made good with Envirograf® Intumescent Cement – Product 63 or AM Intumescent Mastic – Product 58. Should it be found that EP/CP will not adhere to the existing coating, then apply 1 coat of Envirograf® HWAP Adhesion Primer at 10m² per litre. Then apply 2 coats of EP/CP at the rate of 8m² per litre, per coat. The approximate drying time is 1 hour. EP/CP is a smooth coating, but if you require a comb finish or a stippled look, then apply 1 coat of EP/CP at 8 m² per litre, followed by 1 coat of AB – Product 96 – this is a thicker version of EP/CP, which can be comb finished. Please contact us for a quote.
EP/CP and AB both need a Top Finish Coat. We recommend the usage of Envirograf® HW Acrylic Coating at 10 m² per litre, per coat. Please contact us on 01752 690997 if you would like this to be coloured to a specific RAL or BS colour code.
Envirograf® HW Excel can also be applied to EP/CP, if a satin or gloss finish is desired. This comes in white as standard, although it can also be tinted to RAL or BS colour codes. Please contact us to order a tinted version.
HW02/E can be applied where cornices have gold leaf on them. The application rates are – 3 coats at 8 m² per litre, per coat. 1 coat of BL/TCW topcoat should then be applied at 8-10 m² per litre. Please contact us for a quote on these products.
