Passive fire protection systems are widely used by the oil, gas, and chemical industries to protect steel against fire. However, there are concerns that the performance of these systems in a fire may be deteriorated because of weathering. Different weathering causes can modify fire performances of coatings, such as UV exposure, moisture, temperature, and immersion in a corrosive environment such as seawater. In this study, an intumescent fire retardant epoxy based coating containing ammonium… CONTINUE READING
