Palatine Paints: Nullifire Approved Supplier
As a Nullifire authorised supplier, Palatine Paints makes the process easy for you whatever your experience or background.
You will be supplied with the relevant Manufacturer’s certification on completion of your project free of charge. No need to worry about using incorrect quantities or chasing up paperwork…you can get on with doing what you do best.
Please Note: If certification is required, an intumescent enquiry form must be completed prior to purchase of the product, as this will ensure the correct quantity is applied to achieve the fire rating. The enquiry form is available to download from the ‘Data Sheets’ tab.
Apply only on dry and protected structural steel in temperatures of 5ºC and above. For best results apply by Airless spray. Ensure you mechanically stir before use. DO NOT THIN
Airless spraying: SC802 may be applied up to a maximum wet film thickness (WFT) of 1.0mm in a single spray coat comprising several quick passes. Achieving maximum loadings will depend on site conditions. The vast majority of 60 minute loadings can be applied in one coat
For brush application: Use a ‘laying on’ technique to avoid heavy brush marking. The maximum wet film per coat when applied using a brush or roller is 0.6mm. A short pile roller will produce a light textured finish. During application, measure the wet film thickness frequently (gauge provided) to ensure correct thickness is being applied
