Cementitious fireproofing

Used to prevent or delay the failure of steel and concrete structures exposed to fire, cementitious fireproofing products are intended to insulate the structural members during the event of a fire, and delay any loss of their integrity. Yvon Insulation offers a full range of cementitious fireproofing products that can be, depending upon the specific application, used:

  • For interior environments that are dry: Medium density, gypsum-based cementitious fireproofing
  • For specific commercial and industrial fire protection requirements: Portland cement based cementitious fireproofing
  • For interior or exterior exposed steel: High density cementitious Portland cement-based, factory mixed fireproofing
  • For harsh conditions: Petrochemical grade cementitious Portland cement-based fireproofing
  • For specialty and industrial fireproofing requirements: Portland cement-based, high OR ultra-high density, cementitious fireproofing
  • For rigid, urethane and polystyrene foam plastics: Cementitious fire protective coating
  • For retrofit and spray applications of steel and concrete substrates: Gypsum-based, cementitious product specifically formulated as a replacement fireproofing

Intumescent fireproofing

Yvon Insulation offers intumescent fireproof coatings which are brand specific (a particular brand of coating will only conform with a particular brand of spray foam insulation). Out intumescent fireproof coatings are applied in the form of paint, which, when exposed to flame or heat, will bubble up, swell into a foam-like material, and act as a fire-resistant barrier in order to detain ignition. Intumescent fireproof coatings are considered decorative as they’re perfect for exposed surfaces that need to look appealing, and are routinely applied to materials such as steel decking, structural beams and siding systems. Please give us a call today to discuss your intumescent fireproofing needs.

Mineral fiber fireproofing

At Yvon Insulation, our mineral fiber fireproofing products consist of mineral wool fibers and a binder of either plaster or Portland cement. Mineral fiber fireproofing insulates the protected area from temperature rise by limiting heat flow and achieving fire resistance for up to four hours; it’s well suited for metal decking, steel joists and structural steel columns, in an interior or semi-exposed location. Mineral fiber fireproofing products are available in standard or medium density for use in tempered and untempered indoor applications. In addition to adding insulating value and outstanding fire protection for your commercial structure, mineral fiber fireproofing will also provide soundproofing.
