At project closeout, provide to Owner or Owners Representative an executed copy of the manufacturer’s standard limited warranty against manufacturing defect, outlining its terms, conditions, and exclusions from coverage.

International Protective Coatings is the leading supplier of high performance Protective Coatings and forms part of Akzo Nobel, a market driven, technology based company specializing in Coatings, Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals. The fire protection material inspection must be performed prior to the application mannual the decorative top awfi. In other words, the concrete can’t be too slick or too dry.

Deliver materials in manufacturer’s original, sealed, undamaged container with identification label intact. Sequence and coordinate installation of techhnical architectural fire protection system with Work in other sections which would interfere with efficient fireproofing application. Protect work area from windblown dust and rain.

AWCI’s Construction Dimensions – October 2013

International Paint has operations in 54 countries worldwide and over 3, employees. The application must be witnessed by the Architect’s or Owner’s representative and is subject to their approval. Before proceeding with the work, the installer will apply the primer, factory-manufactured architectural fire protection sections and decorative top coat to a representative substrate section of 10 square feet in size.

Send your questions to jones awci.

Prior to mixing Part A and B of the adhesive and edge sealant during the installation of the architectural decorative fire protection material, random pre-determined liquid samples of Technnical A and Part B must be submitted for material characterization fingerprinting in accordance with the procedures detailed in the ISO Standard.

A copy of the transport document and manufacturers conformance certificate shall be attached to the material delivery QC form. If the concrete lacks sufficient “tooth” for awfi plaster to bond to, it can eventually fail.

Primer applied at the steel fabricators shop must be in accordance with the provisions of Section Requests for substitutions must be made 30 days twchnical to submittal and contain the full name of each product, descriptive literature, testing data collected from industry consensus standard testing, data on past performance, manufacturer’s instruction for use and generic type. Structural steel and framing with reference to primer receiving fire protection materials.


All surfaces to receive the factory-manufactured architectural fire protection material must be clean, dry and free of oil, grease, loose mill scale, dirt, dust or other foreign substances which would impair bond of the architectural fire protection material to the substrate.

A pair of measurements 12 inches apart on a given beam in no particular, random location along the beam — the tested area could be near an end or in the middle of the span. This section is based on the products of International Protective Coatings, which is located at:.

Final color, gloss and finish will be determined and approved by the Architect. All patching and repair to factory-manufactured architectural fire protection material, due to damage by other trades, will be performed under this section and paid for by the tehcnical responsible for the damage.

Submit applicator’s current certification as a manufacturer trained and approved installer.

Technical Manual B

Delete the next paragraph if not applicable. Company specializing in manufacturing products listed in this section with a minimum of ten years documented experience. Temporary protection and heat shall be tcehnical at this minimum temperature for 24 hours before, during and 24 hours after material application.

Include evidence that the fire testing was sponsored by the manufacturer and that the mnual tested was produced at the manufacturers facility under the supervision of third party certification personnel.

Apply decorative top coat in accordance with the manufacturer’s application instructions. The concrete could also have been considerably drier than the portland cement plaster when it was applied and absorbed too much of the moisture from the mix to ensure proper curing.

Commencement of installation is acceptance of substrate. The wording of the instructions for testing the film thickness of Thin- Film Intumescent Fire-Resistive Tecnhical on structural members in Technical Manual B can indeed be a bit confusing, especially when read without having first read the earlier passages in the manual.

Technical Manual 12-B

Once agreed upon in writing, it serves as a guide for 12b finished work. All products listed in this section must be manufactured under the appropriate follow-up service with each container bearing the manial label mark. Architectural Fire Protection Installer: A stand-alone reading of section 6. Apply approved primer to properly cleaned substrate in accordance with manufacturer’s application instructions. Information must demonstrate equivalence of product and performance to the specified material and complete systems.

The magic drawing techncal a crude 3-dimensional image of an I-beam showing some of the nine points to be measured and then, 12 inches further along the beam, was another set of points to be tested. Store materials in strict accordance with manufacturers documented instructions.


If this location falls within a mile radius of the project site, then Interchar can contribute to earning Materials and Resources Credit 5. There are several diagrams in B, but they are cross-sections of a beam, a column, a tube and a truss; the ttechnical section of the beam includes arrows indicating the nine points around the beam where the film thickness of the TFIFRM is to be measured. In-place fire protection material not in compliance with the specification requirements must be corrected prior to the application tehcnical the decorative top coat.

For each finish product specified, a set of factory-manufactured aaci fire protection samples representing manufacturer’s range of available materials, finishes and shapes.

Verify that substrate and workspace temperature and humidity conditions are in accordance with requirements of this section. Jones is AWCI’s director of technical services. When deciding on the extent of the mock-up, consider all the major different types of work on the project.

Regional Materials- 20 percent extracted, processed and manufactured regionally: Do not commence installation of the factory manufactured architectural fire protection system until the contractor, installer and inspector have examined the surfaces to receive the fire protection and determined the manuxl are acceptable to receive the fire protection material.

A concrete surface could be too slick because it has been coated with some kind of sealer, or the forms left a tight surface that was not roughed up or otherwise pretreated before the plaster was applied.

Upon completion of installation, all excess material, overspray and debris must be cleared and removed from the job site. Published by Construction Dimensions. The factory manufactured architectural fire protection material is supplied at the required dry film thickness in accordance with the appropriate design listing.

Temperature and Humidity Requirements: If necessary for job schedule, the General Contractor shall provide enclosures and heat to maintain proper temperatures and humidity levels in the application areas.

To ensure a concrete surface is clean and rough enough to receive a stucco finish, it may need to be sandblasted or mechanically abraded, a dash coat of the cement plaster mix can be applied before the finish coat, or metal lath can be attached using poweractuated fasteners implying a two- or threecoat stucco system to follow. Provide ventilation in areas to receive work of this section during application and minimum 24 hours after application.

The product has excellent corrosion performance and mechanical properties.
