PPG SteelGuard The Superior Celluslosic Fire Protection Solution
At IPC Ltd we work closely with PPG and use their Protective & Marine Coatings which have been specially formulated to help save lives and protect assets.
STEELGUARD is a complete range of systems for various grades of fire protection, climatic exposureconditions and application techniques.
These market-leading coatings are specifically formulated to provide superb fire protection for civil buildings, particularly appropriate where exposed steel structures have been used as part of the design in buildings such as shopping centres, airport terminals, sports stadia and schools. But if a fire strikes, the potential for disaster is frightening. Within minutes unprotected steel can reach the critical temperature that causes it to lose stability and collapse.
The value of STEELGUARD intumescent coatings is that they provide the vital extra time to helppeople escape and also allow fire fighters to save the building itself.
Independent Certification – International Approval
PPG is certified to ISO 9001, recognised around the world as a sign of quality. STEELGUARD intumescent coatings meet international standards in fire protection, with each product undergoing a rigorous, exhaustive testing process.In addition, every production batch is checked against its specifications – so you can be assured of consistent quality and accurate fire protection levels at alltimes.
Fire Protection for Civil and Commercial Infrastructure.
Dedicated fire protection forI-section beams and columns
PPG has a long heritage in cellulosic fire protection. In this innovative market, one of the keys tosuccess is having competitive dry-film thickness loadings and a constantly updated product portfolio.
The STEELGUARD 701 and 801 products are the latest new additions to our leading cellulosic fire protection range. These solvent-based reactive intumescent coatings have been specifically developed to target 30 and 60 minute fire scenarios.
Designed for use on I-section beams, columns and other open steel profiles, the purpose of the STEELGUARD 701 and 801 coatings is to protect and extend the stability of steel-framed structures in the event of a fire and prevent collapse for the specified time periods. This gives the building occupants vital additional time to escape to safety and also allows fire fighters to savethe building itself.
To complement this feature, we have also launched the STEELGUARD 702 product. This new accompanying solvent-based intumescent is specifically designed to provide up to 90 minutes fire protection to hollow-section profiles. With improved loadings and an extended HP/A rangeover our existing EN tested products, this combines with our STEELGUARD 701/801 products to offer a full and competitive market solution for every need.
STEELGUARD thin film intumescent coatings have been formulated and designed for a specific purpose; therefore, they are able to outperform other like-for-like competitors’ products both ondry-film thickness loadings and application costs.

We recently worked with Gerry and his team at IPC on a project involving the recoating of our indoor car park and loading bay. The job was not without complications as tenants, deliveries and waste management all needed to be accommodated. IPC were totally flexible in helping us to manage the logistics and worked hard to ensure that the project was delivered on time and within budget. We were very pleased with the quality of the work and the way it has helped to transform the area. We are happy to recommend IPC and will be working with them again on future projects.
The finished area was very impressive and to a very good standard. What was more impressive was the "added value" provided by IPC by way of overcoming the significant problems at a challenging time of year so that the area was ready for use on the first day of the new year. Excellent service in every area and highly recommended.
Having searched the web for local floor refurbishment companies we came across a few which included IPC, having asked for quotations from a few and carried out site visits we found the finish from IPC Ltd to be the best option.
Gerry, their project manager came across as very enthusiastic and cost reasonable against other quotations.
We found IPC Ltd to be a very professional company from Diamond Industrial Painting Ltd. Floor coating for ITV Newsquote to completion. They completed the painting of our new studio floor on time, for a competitive price to a very high standard. We would use them again without hesitation.
IPC Ltd.previously undertook works at two blocks that we manage. The service provided was excellent from start to finish and prices were competitive. All works were completed to a high standard and any snagging was dealt with in a timely manner.
We would certainly recommend IPC Ltd
IPC Ltd carried out the painting of a school kitchen for my company the work was completed on time and to a high standard
I was let down badly at the last minute on a commercial exterior painting job by a local firm, when I approached Gerry late on a Friday night for help, he turned out on the Saturday morning, produced a full quotation over the weekend and had a team on site the same week to start the job, in addition to this it was all carried out in dreadful weather conditions
It makes a refreshing change in the day and age to deal with a company as switched on to a customers needs as IPC Ltd.
Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.
When our 20,000 sq ft retail unit was accidentally filled with smoke IPC Ltd. were able to quickly quote and carry out repainting of surfaces without disruption to our business. Excellent service
During the summer IPC Ltd won a contract to re-decorate the outside of our training centre in Harborne, Birmingham. They completed this large job on time and within the budget, and we have been very happy with the result.
