During a fire hazard, fire directly contacts with the building structures, causing the heat transfer into the structures in very fast moments. This leads to the substantial deterioration of strength of support structures such as cement! concrete/ slabs due to high temperature. Moreover, the steels embedded inside the column structures will also eventually expand during the fire, inducing structural failure. All these contribute to the collapse/ destroy of building in short time. FIRE-SHIELD paint is invented as passive fire protection system. FIRESHIELD protective paint is formulated to prevent direct contact of fire with substrate, slow down the heat transfer, and protect building structures, allowing sufficient time for rescue operation of fire rescue teams and for fire victims to escape for life.
