All patching and repair manuzl factory-manufactured architectural fire protection material, due to damage by other trades, will be performed under this section and paid for by the trade responsible for the damage.

Factory manufactured architectural fire protection system will be a complete system from a single source consisting of primer, factory manufactured fire protection aqci, section adhesive, edge sealant and decorative topcoat. Protect work area from windblown dust and rain. Include evidence that the fire testing was sponsored by the manufacturer and that the material tested was produced at the manufacturers facility under the supervision of third party certification personnel. 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 twchnical the finish coat, or metal lath can be attached using poweractuated fasteners implying a two- or threecoat stucco system to follow.

Sequence and coordinate installation of factory-manufactured architectural fire protection system with Work in other sections which would interfere with efficient fireproofing application. A copy of the transport document and manufacturers conformance certificate shall be attached to the material delivery QC form.

International Paint, LLC, which is located at: Some argue that when testing a beam, the thickness must be tested in nine locations around the beam every 12 inches. Requests for substitutions must be made 30 days prior to submittal and contain the full name of each product, descriptive teechnical, testing data collected from industry technicxl standard testing, data on past performance, manufacturer’s yechnical for use and generic type.


This section is based on the products of International Protective Coatings, which is located at:.

Technical Manual B

Company specializing in manufacturing products listed in this section with a minimum of ten years documented experience. Architectural Fire Protection Installer: If necessary for job schedule, the General Contractor shall provide enclosures and heat to maintain proper temperatures and humidity levels in the application areas.

Upon completion of installation, all excess material, overspray and debris must be cleared and removed from the job site. Jones is AWCI’s director of technical services.

The application must be witnessed by the Architect’s or Owner’s representative and is subject to their approval. What is the intended pattern?

Submit plan, section, elevation and perspective drawings as necessary to depict system configuration, design considerations and application procedures.

We have a problem with stucco that was applied directly over concrete that is now losing adhesion.

Interchar can provide fully fire proofed steelwork without the need to topcoat. Primer applied at the steel fabricators shop must be in accordance with the provisions of Section The following is one example of how a mock-up on a large project might be specified. The relative humidity of the application area shall not exceed a maximum of 85 percent for 24 hours prior, during and 24 hours after the application of the material.

AWCI’s Construction Dimensions – October 2013

In other words, the concrete can’t be too slick or too dry. Substrate and air temperature shall be in accordance with the manufacturers requirements.

Temperature and Humidity Requirements: So, one might wonder, how many beams or other structural members per test? That’s where reading the earlier material comes in handy. 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 Part A and Part B must be submitted for material characterization fingerprinting in accordance with the procedures detailed in the ISO Standard.


Where necessary, cleaning or other corrections of the surfaces to receive the factory-manufactured architectural fire protection are the responsibility of the installer of the incompatible substrate.

Technical Manual 12-B

Commencement of installation is acceptance of substrate. Protect adjacent technicql from over spray of fireproofing material. Approved by the factory manufactured architectural fire protection manufacturer and applied in accordance with the primer manufacturers documented instructions. All products listed in this section must be manufactured under the appropriate follow-up service with each container bearing the certified label mark.

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. The magic drawing was 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.


All surfaces mankal receive the factory-manufactured architectural fire protection material must be clean, dry and free of oil, grease, loose mill scale, dirt, dust or manal foreign substances which would impair bond of the architectural fire protection material to the substrate. Equipment and installation procedures must conform to the factory-manufactured architectural fire protection manufacturer’s installation instructions. Apply decorative top coat in accordance with the manufacturer’s application instructions.

Delete the next paragraph if not applicable. No intumescent fireproofing or coating material may be procured or delivered to the project site prior to the review and acceptance of the proposed materials by the Architect in writing.
