HENSOTHERM fire protection paint is an insulating coating for wood according to DIN 4102 Part1. When exposed to heat, it forms a heat-insulating foam layer on endangered wooden surfaces such as in the engine room or galley of wooden yachts and traditional ships. HENSOTHERM is already approved as a fire protection system on numerous traditional ships.
HENSOTHERM 1KS is colorless and is only suitable for basically dry interior areas. For a colorless, transparent coating in these areas, the wood is first primed with wood primer AQ to minimize absorbency. Then the insulating HENSOTHERM 1KS is applied and finally sealed with the topcoat HENSOTOP 84AF to achieve a certain abrasion resistance.
In areas on board where high humidity or condensation can occur, the waterproof, gray, exterior paint HENSOTHERM 2KS must be used and afterwards sealed with the waterproof, white topcoat HENSOTOP SB. HENSOTOP SB is available in a wide range of colors on request and at extra cost. Unfortunately, transparent fire protection in areas subject to moisture is not possible.
