The challenge for the company’s fire protection experts was the museum’s remarkable design, a joint-free assembly of 890 unique stainless steel and fibreglass fused panels fabricated using methods borrowed from the aviation industry. Sherwin-Williams technical experts selected the Phoenix 370-120H water-based intumescent coating rated for 120-minutes fire protection to apply on the museum structure. Fabricator was Eversendai.
“For specifiers, architects, developers and applicators, this is game-changing. Our comprehensive range of products and the substantial advances we have made in intumescent coating technology are delivering significant protection and operational benefits and options to our customers,” said Roger Williams, Market Director-FIRETEX, EMEAI & APAC at Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine.
