What Passive Fireproofing is?

When we speak of passive fire protection or passive fireproofing, we generally are referring to a wide range of practices and products. For the sake of better understanding, we can describe PFP as specific materials that are ingrained in our surrounding structures with the sole purpose of stopping fires from starting or spreading.

The most fireproofing material used for the offshore environment to protect the steel from a fire is an epoxy-based intumescent fireproofing that expands. Another favorite fireproofing material is vermiculite, which is a cementitious based fireproofing material that doesn't go to any significant changes during the fire.
