PPG Pitt-Char NX

PITT-CHAR NX is PPG's next-generation, flexible epoxy intumescent coating system designed to resist the most severe hydrocarbon hazards - pool fires, jet fires and explosions - in onshore and offshore environments within the oil, gas and petrochemical industries.

When exposed to the high temperatures of the fire, PPG PITT-CHAR NX expands to form a robust, insulating char that significantly reduces the rate of heat up of the protected item. The insulation maintains steel integrity, and hence buys crucial time for personnel to escape and equipment to function on demand.
