LKAB Minerals offers two main products to increase the fire retardancy of your coating: MicaFortand ATH.

High aspect ratio MicaFort

Cementitious fire-resistant coatings used for the protection of structural steel and concrete in commercial construction gain from MicaFort‘s high aspect ratio and thermal stability. This contributes to lower flammability whilst reinforcing the char to prevent coating failure during a fire.

Halogen-free Aluminium Trihydrate

In waterborne and solvent-based paints ATH can extend TiO2 thereby reduce production costs of the paint. The weathering resistance provided by ATH means it performs well in exterior coatings as well as interior. ATH also controls gloss in coatings making it suitable for a variety of applications including powder and roof coatings.

Our team at LKAB Minerals is technically trained to help you select the right ATH or MicaFort product. Contact one of our sales managers today for more detailed information, a sample or datasheet.
