Albi fireproofing products
Albi Clad 800 is an intumescent product for fireproofing steel assets designed by Albi Manufacturing to protect structures from prolonged exposure to fire.
Highly resistant to corrosive environments, ultraviolet exposure, severe weather, impact and vibrations, Albi Clad 800 is manufactured to achieve long-term fire protection on exteriors or wherever a the coating is expected to encounter service abuse.
This product is UL classified for protection of both interior and exterior steel substrates for up to three hours. That means it satisfies UL’s 1709 Standard for Rapid Rise Fire Tests of Protection Materials for Structural Steel, the most common industry standard required by insurance providers. Albi Clad 800 is most commonly applied at a thickness of 350 mils to achieve a 1.5-hour fire rating, but it can be applied at a 750 mil thickness when a 3-hour fire rating is required.
Oil refineries, petrochemical facilities and other heavy industrial facilities commonly apply Albi fireproofing products as a means of protecting the structural steel in their facilities. Albi Clad 800 is strongly recommended for use on offshore drilling platforms, power plants and docking facilities. Albi products are also capable of providing fire protection for commercial and architectural spaces.
Why Albi fireproofing products?
Whereas most intumescent coatings are dual-component epoxies, Albi Clad 800 is a single-component, fireproofing product. A single-component application means no plural component spray equipment is required, cleanup is simple and less time is spent on the application process. Reduced labor costs help to keep your fireproofing project under budget while still deploying an effective solution.
Because no topcoat is required, all the costs associated with maintaining an additional coat are eliminated. Products that do require topcoats add substantial costs over the lifetime of the coating, since the topcoat must be maintained in order to protect the intumescent portion of the system. Albi Clad 800, however, was designed to stand up to a range of abuses over the course of its service, without the help of an additional topcoat.
