PPG PITT-CHAR® NX White Paper
Next generation flexible passive fire protection
PPG PITT-CHAR NX is our next generation flexible epoxy intumescent coating system designed to resist the most severe hydrocarbon hazards - pool fires, jet fires and explosions - in both onshore and offshore environments within the oil, gas and petrochemical industries.
When exposed to the high temperatures of the fire, PPG PITT-CHAR NX expands to form a robust, insulating char that significantly reduces the rate of heat up of the protected item. The insulation maintains steel integrity, and hence buys crucial time for personnel to escape and equipment to function on demand.
Building on proven technology and expertise
For over 35 years PPG's fireproofing technology has been trusted to safeguard personnel and equipment in hazardous environments around the world. Building on this experience and track record, and developed in our UL-certified Global Protection Technology Center, this unique patent-pending product brings major advantages to owners, engineers, fabricators and applicators.
The PPG PITT-CHAR NX flexible epoxy intumescent coating system offers low thickness, reduced weight and faster application, at the same time providing outstanding durability by retaining PPG's unique flexible technology.
