Do you have walls that you need to ensure achieve a Class 0 fire rating?

Timonox Upgrade Basecoat is an intumescent paint for interior walls and ceilings, necessary for upgrading a Class 4 surface to Class 0. It works by creating a thick, insulating char layer when exposed to fire, which protects the underlying substrate and in turn, slows the spread of the fire.

Coverage = up to 2.5m² per litre on smooth surfaces.

Carriage included in tin price


Timonox Upgrade Basecoat is fundamental when fireproofing a Class 4 surface. Without it, it is impossible to achieve a Class 0 rating. A layer of this basecoat creates a thick insulating char layer, upon which any Timonox finish can be applied. This carbonaceous foam (char) layer protects any underlying substrate, including underlying conventional paint and insulates the surface.
