Improve the safety and minimize the risk of process interruptions and property damage with fireproofing.
Fireproofing is a critical addition to the protection of equipment that is exposed to flammable chemicals and agents. When exposed to temperatures of 100 F and greater, steel loses 60% of its original strength. With a fire-retardant system applied, the time it takes to reach this temperature can be drastically increased.
Our team at GCIS is well-trained in fireproofing applications and would be happy to assist you in determining the right fireproofing system for your needs. Our certified NACE specialists, engineers, and skilled workers are experienced in the following fireproofing applications:
Epoxy Based Coatings
Corrosion Under Fireproofing (CUF) Treatments
Developed by NASA, epoxy based intumescent fireproofing combines the benefits of protective coating systems with the fire protection of cast-in place concrete and lightweight cementitious fireproofing.
When exposed to fire, this coating system forms an expanding, heat resistant char layer to protest your equipment and property.
A spray applied two component petrochemical grade provides 1-4 hour protection in hydrocarbon pools, vessel skirts, beams and columns, bulkheads, etc.
With over 90 years of experience in the petrochemical industry, concrete uses for fire protection have been tried and proven for many years.
Fireproofing with concrete requires minimal surface preparation and is typically applied using poured-in-place forms for concrete and beams and gunite for spheres and other structures that concrete is not applicable for.
