Additives for fire resistance
LKAB Minerals manufacture and supply a range of natural minerals for making coatings fire / flame resistant.
Cementitious fire resistant coatings used for the protection of structural steel and concrete in commercial construction gain from MicaFort's high aspect ratio and thermal stability. This contributes to lower flammability whilst reinforcing the char to prevent coating failure during a fire.
In waterborne and solvent based paints ATH can extend TiO2 thereby reducing production costs of the paint. The weathering resistance provided by ATH means it performs well in exterior coatings as well as interior. ATH also controls gloss in coatings making it suitable for a variety of applications including powder and roof coatings.
