Fire Protection

PPG is an industry leader in both Hydrocarbon Passive Fire Protection (PFP) and Cellulosic Passive Fire Protection. Our PPG PITT-CHAR system has been trusted for decades to protect safety critical structures and equipment in hazardous environments, particularly in the oil and gas industries. Providing Cellulosic Passive Fire Protection, our PPG STEELGUARD intumescent coatings work by expanding at high temperatures, from a very thin, lightweight coating, into a thick, foam-like layer that insulates steel from fire. Both our fire protection systems meet the most rigorous industry testing standards.
