Hempafire Pro

Hempafire Pro coatings have been developed to maintain the stability of steel structures in the event of a fire.

Proven fire protection for almost any project

With multiple coatings for different steel profiles, fire protection can be complex. With Hempafire Pro, it no longer has to be.


Independently tested, Hempafire Pro coatings provide proven fire protection for 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes and can be applied to most steel section types (I sections, hollows, cellular beams, etc.) using standard application equipment. Combined with a primer and topcoat, they offer excellent long-term performance in exterior environments up to C4. All this makes Hempafire Pro an ideal choice for almost any project. 

Greater safety. Higher productivity. And a beautifully robust finish.

Designed for performance and productivity, Hempafire Pro coatings improve building safety and increase project efficiency. They require lower loadings than similar products, reducing paint consumption and application costs. And they go on fast and dry quickly, for higher productivity in the yard and on site.

Optimising a lower cost solution with greater project simplicity, Hempafire Pro systems offer lower DFTs and are fast drying, which minimises damage during transport and construction, reducing touch-up work on site. Hempafire Pro coatings also dry to a very smooth finish with a high-quality appearance. The result is greater safety, higher productivity and a beautifully robust finish. 

Cost savings with highly competitive loadings

Thanks to Hempafire Pro’s very low loadings, you require thinner dry film thicknesses on most steel profiles, significantly reducing paint consumption and waste compared to similar products. 

Increased productivity with less application

As Hempafire Pro coatings require less thickness and fewer coats, the intumescent layers in your coating system will have short drying times, increasing throughput and efficiency in the paint shop. For on-site applications, Hempafire Pro can be applied up to 1,600 microns in one coat without sagging. This means fewer coats are required, which results in lower on-site labour costs and faster project completion times, allowing other trades to continue operating upon completion of coatings application.


Optimum results made easy

Hempafire Pro coatings helps to reduce complexity in all stages of a project, from specification to application, including service life. The products are versatile, applicator-friendly, and provide excellent aesthetic finish. Additionally, the products are quick and easy to apply using standard application equipment.

More importantly, Hempafire Pro coatings can be applied to most steel profile types, such as thin hollow tubes, large open columns, cellular beams, tension rods, plates and other complex shapes. Simplify your operations and the specification process with a single coatings solution for both on-site and off-site applications.

Sustainability gains

The Hempafire Pro range boasts of very low DFTs required to protect steel sections, resulting in reduced amount of paint and application needed to protect the structures. With lower paint consumption and reduced application, this results in decreased environmental impact.

You can be assured with Hempel’s global manufacturing footprint and selection of locally sourced high quality raw materials results in very low values of embedded CO2. This positively contributes to reduced  carbon footprint of your project. Hempafire Pro coatings, along with compatible Hempel primers and topcoats have been tested and certified with Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), which contribute to achieving points and credits for Green Building Schemes such as LEED and BREEAM.
