Preparation

Sand down all surfaces to a matt finish and test with individual water droplets - if the droplets collapse immediately you have a suitable surface. Now test with a small patch of normal emulsion paint. If the emulsion dries flat and smooth your prepared surface is good enough for application of the Intumescent Base Coat. If the emulsion does not dry properly the surfaces are not ready for the Intumescent Base Coat - call us for advice on 01626 872 886. Once the doors pass the emulsion test try a small patch test of the Intumescent Base Coat and when hard follow with the finish paint.

Method

First, apply the base coats (4) (which are always supplied in white) using our Timbercoat This is used for timber and timber product fire door upgrading, but only on solid doors. Hollow doors are NOT suitable for upgrading into Fire Doors. Then apply your choice of colour finish SFR Flame Paint in matt or eggshell. SFR Fire Paint is used as part of a door upgrade to FD30.

Important - we will only supply Fire Paint or Fire Varnish for Door Upgrades if you have received our Door Upgrade Specification (free of charge - call 01626 872886 ) and then completed our Door Upgrade Building Inspector Permission Form. This is to avoid the risk that your Building Inspector may refuse the upgrade, which could cost you a lot of wasted time and money.

Warnings - do not apply over existing paint without thorough sanding. Then apply a small amount of Timbercoat to a test area. Inadequate surface preparation can lead to 'cissing' - a defect in which freshly applied paint recedes from the surface leaving small circular or streaky bare areas. The usual cause is a water repellent surface due to an existing coating (oil, wax, paint, varnish, etc.) or a lack of surface cleaning. Always test a small patch before proceeding - allow the product to fully dry, apply the top coat(s) and then check for finish and colour before proceeding with the whole area.

Stripped Doors - doors stripped using chemicals may still have chemical and paint/varnish residues on the surfaces. These contaminants can cause:

1. Sissing - gaps in the paint or varnish film where the surface has repelled the coating - these gaps go right through down to the previous coat or bare surface

2. Dimples - hollow spots where during the drying out process the contaminants have reacted with the coating - these are depressions and do not go down to the previous coat or bare surface

Colour Charts - what do RAL and BS mean?

In 1925, the private sector and the German government of that time founded the "Reichsausschuss für Lieferbedingungen" - RAL - (Committee of the German Reich for Terms and Conditions of Sale).

RAL's original task was to standardise precise technical terms of delivery and sale for the purpose of rationalisation. Today, RAL is the recognised competent body for reliable certification of products and services. They introduced Paint Colour Charts in 1927. These now cover over 1900 colours.

B.S. Standards for British Standard, derived from our equivalent - The British Standards Institute (BSI).
