The use of intumescent paints for passive protection against fire in metal structures has seen a great growth in recent years. The construction of buildings often uses a steel structure, given the simple manufacture of these structures. However, like all materials, steel loses mechanical properties when exposed to high temperatures. It is estimated that it loses about 40% resistance when it reaches 550°C. Steel must, therefore, be protected in the event of a fire. Passive fire protection is a requirement to protect lives during catastrophic events. The structure of a building must be adequately protected in the event of a fire.
