Interchar® 212


To assist in preserving the structural integrity of steelwork in a cellulosic fire in structures such as airport terminals, leisure facilities, convention centres, educational facilities, shopping malls, industrial complexes and hotels. Interchar 212 utilizes tough, durable epoxy technology to provide a material that allows for steelwork to be fabricated and fire protected away from the construction site, which helps in both improving quality control and reducing construction schedules.


Solvent-free Interchar 212 is a high build, robust, two component modified epoxy intumescent providing damage-resistant fire and corrosion protection.

Features and benefits:

  • Designed to be used on steelwork requiring protection from cellulosic fires.
  • Independently fire tested.
  • Recognised by FM Approvals as a Specification Tested Product in accordance with ASTM E119. T
  • Tested in accordance with UL 263 (exterior listed) and BS EN 476-20, 21 and 22.
  • Can provide fully fireproofed steelwork without the need to topcoat.
  • Primarily a spray-applied material and performs without the requirement for any reinforcement.
