Flame Guard VC is a cement-vermiculite coating for structural steel, concrete and other substrates, which is specifically designed for hydrocarbon fires. FlameGuard VC is easy to apply, and does not contain asbestos. It is factory blended to ensure quality and cost-effective coatings that can be applied with a spray gun, generally without the need for mechanical reinforcement on concrete substrates in normal circumstances. In other cases reinforcement may be required (steel elements). Recommended uses for the fire protection of structural steel, bulkheads, and upgrading the fire resistance of any existing concrete etc.
