The building requires a C2 and C3-classified coating system that will provide long-term corrosion protection and improve safety in case of fire.
The steel with primed with Hempadur Fast Dry 17410 and Hempadur Mastic 45881. The intumescent fire protection coating Hempacore FD 43601 produces an insulating layer of carbon char when exposed to high temperatures. This enables the steel to retain its load-bearing capacity for up to two hours, giving people valuable time to evacuate. Hempatex Hi-Build, a non-glossy acrylic topcoat, completed the durable, fire-retardant finish.
