Performance of Intumescent Fire Protection Coatings in Non-Standard Heating Scenarios

Background Theory

Fire Science is an esoteric subject. Understanding the scope of this research topic will be difficult without having Fire Science as a prerequisite therefore the purpose of this section is to outline essential fundamental background theory directly related to our research.

Intumescence Explained: This section explains the science behind the process of intumescence.

Intumescent Coatings: This section explains the types of Intumescent coatings and their uses.

Brief Literature Review: This section contains a brief literature review based on current testing methods used in the industry.

Heating Scenarios: This section introduces the various heating scenarios related to our research.
