Fire protection coatings are hugely important they can help to preserve life and prevent catastrophic damage to buildings. Fire protection coatings work in different ways dependant on substrate. Fire protection for metal would be Intumescent Paints, these under heat / flame foam up to build a carbon layer thick enough to protect the metal substrate from loosing its structural integrity. Fire retardant coatings are used onto timber, fabrics etc. These items are combustible and will burn eventually but fire retardant coatings slows the spread of flame.
