International Paint introduces Interchar® technology, an advanced fireproofing material that delivers unprecedented fire protection and anti-corrosion benefits.
Interchar delivers the aesthetic versatility architects seek for exposed steel designs, while also providing the anti-corrosion and extreme-heat fire protection never before available to the building industry.
Interchar’s formulation produces faster cure times, superior adhesion to steel surfaces and an ultra-strong, durable barrier to the steel beam underneath. In addition, the technology’s inherent flexibility allows it to be fabrication shop–applied in as few as two coats, virtually eliminating the process of applying fireproofing materials at the construction site. Together, these attributes can provide up to four hours of fire protection, helping prevent steel infrastructures from collapsing prematurely and giving building occupants more time to evacuate safely.
