Intumescent coatings

Dispersions to help you meet the latest requirements for water-based intumescent coatings

Synthomer is the leading supplier of vinyl acetate copolymer dispersions for water-based thin film intumescent coatings. As the market has grown and become more global, Synthomer has continued to innovate with high performance water-based products capable of replacing solvented systems. As a result, intumescent paints based on Synthomer binders can increase the fire protection time of structural steel to 60 or 120 minutes. In addition, advanced flame retardant synergists from Synthomer’s speciality inorganic chemicals company William Blythe can reduce fire spread and smoke evolution.

  • Water-based binders for environmentally-responsible intumescent coatings and sealants.
  • Ensure excellent foam development and stabilisation.
  • Tailor-made for different levels of protection.
  • Good water resistance.
