Thermoguard Dualcoat Smoke and Flame Retardant Topcoat is a water based decorative topcoat that forms part of an intumescent system for wood, internal steel and cast iron.
For wood surfaces, Timbercoat Intumescent should be used as the basecoat. For internal steel or cast iron, use Thermocoat WI or Thermoguard WO, depending on the shape.
Thermoguard Dualcoat creates “cross links” in the surface during the drying process. This creates a smooth, durable and cleanable surface by eliminating microscopic pockets that can host bacteria.
