Amonn produces the intumescent paints Amotherm Wood WB and WSB specially designed for protecting wooden structures from fire.
The fire-resistance of wooden structures can only be verified through analysis in compliance with the criteria set out in the European codes EN1991-1-2 and EN1995-1-2, making a technical assessment enabling the thickness of the protective coating
to be measured, taking into account the following parameters:
- resistant sections
- static framework and loads
- type of partition
- carbonisation speed
AMONN has tested our Amotherm Wood paints according to the standard EN 13381-7: “Test methods for determining the contribution to the fire resistance of structural members - Applied protection to timber members” and we have calculated the contribution made by the protective coating to reducing the carbonisation speed.
