Carboline released Thermo-Sorb 263 and Thermo-Sorb E, VOC compliant intumescent coatings to provide a durable and decorative, fast drying fire protection solution for commercial and light industrial applications.

Thermo-Sorb 263 provides up to four hours of cellulosic fires protection for interior structural steel. While Thermo-Sorb E provides up to three hours of cellulosic fire protection for exterior structural steel.

Thermo-Sorb 263 and Thermo-Sorb E have been tested and certified in accordance with ASTM E- 119, UL 263 and CAN/ULC S 101-07 and is rated for exterior and interior use. The intumescent reaction and resulting char production slows the rise of steel temperature and allows it to maintain its strength for an extended period of time. This increases the time for safe evacuation of the occupants and protection of assets.
