Provide masking, drop cloths or other suitable coverings to prevent overspray onto surfaces not intended to be affected by Work in this section. Verify that all clip hangers, piping, ducts, equipment or other items which would interfere with the installation of the factory-manufactured architectural fire protection system are not positioned or installed until installation is complete.

Technical Manual 12-B

Protect work area from windblown dust and rain. That’s techniical reading the earlier material comes in handy. Interchar is primarily a spray applied material, and performs without the requirement for any reinforcement. Remove fire protection materials from surfaces not required to be fireproofed. Include evidence that the fire testing was sponsored by the manufacturer and that the material tested was produced awfi the manufacturers facility under the supervision of third party certification personnel.

The application must be witnessed by the Architect’s or Owner’s representative and is subject to their approval.

Verify that substrate and workspace temperature and humidity conditions are in accordance with requirements of this section. Store and dispose of hazardous materials, and materials contaminated by hazardous materials, in accordance with requirements of local authorities having jurisdiction.

If this location falls within a mile radius of the project manhal, then Interchar can contribute to earning Materials and Resources Credit 5. Published by Construction Dimensions. Submit manufacturer’s written installation instructions.

AWCI’s Construction Dimensions – October 2013

Interchar can provide fully fire proofed techniccal without the need to topcoat. Send your questions to jones awci. Provide a mock-up for evaluation of surface preparation techniques and application workmanship.

Areas will be designated by the Architect. Final texture and finish of the factory-manufactured architectural fire protection surface must be completed prior to the application of the decorative top coat and in accordance with the approved mock-up samples. What is the intended pattern? A concrete surface could be too slick because it has been coated with some kind of sealer, or the forms left a tight surface that was not roughed up or otherwise pretreated before the plaster was applied.


Architectural Fire Protection Factory Manufacturer: Upon completion of installation, all excess material, overspray and debris must be cleared and removed from the job site.

Before proceeding with the work, the installer will apply the primer, factory-manufactured architectural fire protection sections and decorative top coat to a representative substrate section of 10 square feet in size. Requests for substitutions 12-v be made 30 days prior to submittal and contain the full name of each product, descriptive literature, testing data collected from industry consensus standard testing, data on past performance, manufacturer’s instruction for use and generic type.

Temperature and Humidity Requirements: No intumescent fireproofing or coating material may be procured or delivered to the project site prior to the review and acceptance of the proposed materials by the Architect in writing. Structural steel and framing with reference to primer receiving fire protection materials. Clean substrate free of dust, dirt, grease or other foreign substances that would impair with the awic of the factory manufactured architectural fire protection adhesive material.

The following is one example of how a mock-up on a large project might be specified. Grind smooth all weld spatter and defects prior to commencement of fire protection installation.

Technical Manual B

The fire protection material inspection must be performed prior to the application of the decorative top coat. The product has excellent corrosion performance and mechanical properties.

When I first encountered this instruction many years ago, I happened to be observing a fire kanual of a new formulation of an intumescent coating in a small-scale furnace conducted by one of our manufacturer members. In other words, the concrete can’t be too slick or too dry. Packaged materials must bear the appropriate labels, seals and designated certification mark for fire resistive ratings. All products listed in this section must be manufactured under the appropriate follow-up service with each container bearing the certified label mark.

Where necessary, cleaning or other corrections of the surfaces to receive the factory-manufactured architectural technicwl protection are the responsibility of the installer of the incompatible aaci. Delete the next paragraph if not applicable.


Company specializing in installing the work of this section with a minimum of three years documented experience and certified by the material manufacturer.

After several failed attempts to explain this testing procedure to me I first took it to mean one must measure near each end of the beam, 12 inches inthe technical sales rep wound up drawing a diagram that finally made it clear.

If necessary for job schedule, the General Contractor shall provide enclosures and heat to maintain proper temperatures and humidity levels in the application areas. There are several diagrams in B, but they are cross-sections of a beam, a column, a tube and a truss; the cross section of the beam includes arrows indicating the nine points around the beam where the film thickness of the TFIFRM is to be measured. Information must demonstrate equivalence of product and performance to the specified material and complete systems.

Do not commence installation of the factory manufactured architectural fire protection system until the contractor, installer and inspector have examined the surfaces to receive the fire protection and determined the surfaces are acceptable to receive the fire protection material. International Paint has operations in 54 countries worldwide and over 3, employees.

The use of a bonding agent may also improve the bond of portland cement plaster applied over relatively slick concrete, but the literature warns that one should ensure that it is an exterior grade bonding agent because a cheaper interior grade of bonding agent may not provide adequate bond.

Delete paragraphs not applicable. Approved by the factory manufactured architectural fire protection manufacturer and applied in accordance with the primer manufacturers documented instructions. Patching must be performed by the qualified installer and applied in accordance with the manufacturer’s installation instructions. In-place fire protection material not in compliance with the specification requirements must be corrected prior to the application of the decorative top coat.

All batch number, product identification and quantities shall be recorded on appropriate QC documents. A stand-alone reading of section 6.
