Paints used shall comply with the minimum
requirements of BS EN ISO 1518 Part 1.
M61.1404 Life Expectancy
Life expectancy to first maintenance for the
intumescent coating and protective bolt caps to be a
minimum of 10-12 years, subject to an inspection
being carried out every 2-5 years. The paint
manufacturer shall provide a written specification at
the time of tender for recoating (by others) at the end
of the life expectancy period.
M61.1405 Inspection
Together with the applicator, where Site coats are to
be applied, alert the paint manufacturer seven days
prior to the start of the application programme and
permit the paint manufacturer to inspect the work in
progress and prepare inspection reports in
accordance with the standard conditions of Contract.
The paint manufacturer shall forward a copy of any
inspection report direct to the Client's
Representative. Technical support from the paint
manufacturer shall not relieve the Contractor of his
contractual responsibility to ensure that the coatings
are applied in accordance with the Specification.

we originally specified intumescent paint fire protection in our specifications.
However, intumecent paint generally can do up to 2.0 HRs. Because of this
reason you suggested a different thick paint for the columns. This will be
suitable on the internal columns, where we have space to accommodate this
extra 20 mm. However, on the ss clad sidewalls we do not have this space.
Therefore, we would like to ask you to show us on the key details of the
project (column situations) how the fire protection will be solved. As I write,
218 this will be critical on the sidewall columns, where there is no space on the
Fire exterior column face for this additional 20 mm. You will see a 36.5 mm zone, but
14 Protectio 2013.11.21 14 that one is reserved for construction tolerances. The last page of our

n comments show a strategy how to handle this condition.


Provide methodology for checking thickness on site

Coating thickness test shall comply with GB50205-2001
Please refer to : arch spec M61,structural spec s-002 6.1&6.2, fire strategy (5.6

all along. The diameter of this disc is less than

30mm to ensure that it can contact the surface
of the test sample fully. If it isn't suitable to
insert the thickness gauge into some material to
be tested, the thickness of such material may
be measured by other suitable methods.
During the test, insert the probing pin of
thickness gauge into the fire-retard coating
layer until reach the surface of steel material
(see Figure F.0.1),then record the reading
indicated in the scale.

F.0.2 Selection of test point
1. For fire-retardant coating layer of floor slab or fire-retardant wall, take
the area included by the two neighboring longitudinal axial-lines and two
lateral axial-lines as one test unit; and then select one test point on the
diagonals of such unit for test.
2. For fire-retardant coating layer of beam or column of all-steel structure,
take a section plane every 3m;then test
F.0.3 Test results:
For floor slab or wall, measure 5 (at least) points in the selected area, and
for beam or column,measure 6~8 points selected;then calculated the
average of the measured values respectively (accuracy:0.5mm)
