Sherwin-Williams Firetex FX2005 Intumescent Steel Paint Overview

Sherwin-Williams Firetex FX2005 is a single pack thin film, white solvent based intumescent coating, designed in-shop application by airless spray to provide fire resistance for up to 120 minutes on structural steel.

After appropriate drying, Firetex FX2005 specifications can be exposed to the weather for up to 6 months, provided that the specific use does not lead to ponding water due to rainfall, condensation or other site circumstances. It can resist normal weather conditions for up to 6 months without topcoat provided it has had appropriate drying prior to exposure. After this time period an appropriate top coat shall be applied.


Like all fire protection work to structural steel, the amount of product required - the loading - varies depending on the Hp/A value of the steel members. Briefly the Hp/A value is an expression of its ability to absorb heat. 
Firetex FX2005 
protects without the need for excessive coats, making it a cost-effective
advantage, thus, saving on labour, & materials.

The larger its surface area as a ratio of its mass, the quicker heat will be absorbed and the greater the Hp/A value.


Firetex FX2005 is applied to clean, dry primed steels. Please see our QD High Build Zinc Phosphate Primer for further information.


For internal steels, Firetex FX1005 does not require over-coating, however where a colour finish has been specified the use of a proprietary water based gloss or emulsion paint can be used. For external steels, Firetex FX1005 requires a a topcoat which protects the steel from exposed weather conditions; we can supply a range of topcoats in both 1 pack & 2 pack finishes in 100's of colours.


Acknowledging the importance of fire protection, if requested we can arrange for certification to be issued for each project. This confirms the quantity of product supplied, the square meterage to be treated and confirms the level of fire protection specified. The applicator will also sign the document to confirm he has applied the material in accordance with the manufacturers’ specification.
