  19. 19. A Revolution In Protection . . . Contego is Latin for “To shield, to guard, or to protect.” Contego’s Passive Fire Barrier (PFB) primer/finish is one of the most powerful, important technologies ever developed! • Familiar latex base – no more toxic solvent base – no acidic smell. • Super thin, aesthetic appearance – no more “oatmeal” look. • Significant savings in terms of applied cost per square foot. • Top coat it with any acrylic enamel for the perfect finish. • Bonds tightly to almost any kind of substrate. • Thoroughly tested and laboratory certified. • Can be factory applied or applied on site. • Requires no special preparation.
  20. 20. What is it? When exposed to high heat or fire, Contego’s Passive Fire Barrier thin film primer/finish swells or “intumesces” forming a tough char barrier that stops the fire by blocking access to the fuel it needs to grow. Two coats of Contego Intumescent primer offers solid protection It’s simple - no fuel, no fire. • Water-based Contego PFB applies like any normal latex paint. When exposed to fire Contego • Cleans up easily with soap and water.“Intumesces” providing a char barrier • Contego PFB bonds tightly to virtually any substrate thanks to advanced polymers. • It’s like any normal latex primer. Apply any color, type The char barrier reflects heats and or brand of paint as a topcoat, or tint and use as a finish coat protects the underlying substrate without need to topcoat. • Thin film means less weight and space than with other barriers.When the fire is extinguished simply scrape away the char barrier
  21. 21. Applications Contego protects almost any type of building material or substrate:  Framing, studs, joists, and stringers.  Drywall.  Turn hollow-core and solid doors into fire-resistant doors.  Structural Steel.  Oil rigs and Maritime applications.  Automotive and aircraft.  And…

  51. 51. Contego Test Results on ¼” Steel Plate byClarian’s Laboratories in Knapsack, Germany On March 28, 2003, Clariant Corporation, the global leader in fire protection technology conducted a DIN 1402, Part 8 test on Contego International’s Thin Film Intumescent on a ¼” steel plate to verify it’s performance. The results: • 75 minutes duration using only 39 mils (dft). • 95 minutes at 58 mils (dft). • The DIN 1042, Part 8 uses a hotter furnace temperature and lower fail temperature than the ASTM-119 or UL-263. Contego’s performance matched other test results, proving that Contego Thin Film Intumescent Fire Barrier Latex now represents the state-of-the-art in thin film protection. • The test results can be found on the “Steel Data” subdirectory on the CD. Download tests at: www.contegointernational.com
  52. 52. Additional Test Results on W10 x 49As a follow up to the Clariant test, we wanted to verify that Contegois best used as a “thin film” product, so we over-applied to 94 mils.• Dry film thickness was excessive at 94 mils (2.47mm).• Failure temperatures were reached at 88 minutes.• The data from the DIN 1402 Part 8 was confirmed – 75 mils is the maximum thickness for Contego applications on structural steel.• Count on Contego for complete data for fire protection.

  54. 54. Can you top coat Contego?Typically, top coating a fire barrier will reduce or even kill its fire resistantproperties. But not Contego…We tested .500 plate and .250 plate steel at Southwest Research Instituteand found that a top coat of acrylic actually improves Contego’s fireresistance by 25% to 32%.Now you can use an even thinner coat of Contego and enjoy betterperformance than ever while achieving the best possible aesthetics tocompliment your design. Download tests at: www.contegointernational.com
  55. 55. Here’s the bottom line on top coatingOur testing shows how a top coat of acrylic enamel adds 25% to 32% to our fireresistance. We’ve always known that top coating would add to our fire resistance,but these numbers offer clear quantification.If you average the thermocouple readouts at any point, you will see that the acrylicenamel adds an average of 25% to our fire resistance. For example, at 1 hour theaverage of the TC’s on .500 plate steel is 872 degrees with Contego alone, but only635 degrees if a top coat is applied for a 28% improvement. On .250 plate, thespread is 1349 vs. 978, also a 28% improvement.At 90 minutes, the spread on .500 is 1076 vs. 825 for a 24% gain and on .250, thedifference is 29%. Even at 2 hours, the top coated .250 specimen had not reachfailure temperature (In fact, both top coated samples were far from failure for theentirety of the test until it was terminated at 2:25 when the .250 averaged 1058degrees. Failure is 1,200 degrees. Download tests at: www.contegointernational.com
  56. 56. Review our test results on Structural SteelAll steel tests are conducted to nine different standards simultaneously –ASTM-E119, UL-263, ULC-S101, NFPA-251, ANSI A2.1, UBC-7.3,plus CEN, ISO and BSS for the world market.All testing performed by independent, audited, accredited and certifiedlaboratories including UL, SGS-US Testing, Southwest Research Institute,Omega Point Laboratories, Intertek and others.Superior results with a super-thin coat, no toxicity and unmatchedadhesion. (The World Trade Center had fireproofing – but it fell offon impact.)
  57. 57. Seeing is Believing:The Challenge:Protecting a 120 year old farmhouse from burningwas not a challenge for Contego.The Contego team dry walled and treated the livingroom. Then, with the cooperation of the NoblesvilleFire Department, we tried to burn it to the ground. “Structures protected by your products seemThey began by placing an upholstered recliner in the invulnerable to fire. The usecorner, covering it with combustibles like straw and of your products will clearlydrapery material. Then they lit it and allowed it to reduce deadly smoke production and giveburn for several minutes…this would normally cause a firefighters additional time tocatastrophic whole house fire. react to fires once reported.” --James Risk,Results: Executive Director,A slight charring of the walls where the power of Fire and Safety ManagementContego PFB intumesced to protect the substrate andsave the house from burning. Video is available at: www.contegofirebarrier.com
  58. 58. Dramatic Protection: Versatility: Contego can be used on the exterior of structures as well as the interior. Although designed for interior use, its wearability allows it to be used on the exterior of structures providing a topcoat is applied. Contego applied two coats of its thin film intumescent latex to this 120 year-old farmhouse. Note that the Video is available at: windows on the treated section of the house stay intact www.contegofirebarrier.com during the entire burn, indicating much cooler temperatures inside, even though the rest of the house is engulfed in flames. Survivability: Fire doubles every 60 seconds in a non-treated structure. Contego adds time… To escape For firemen to respond To save lives and minimize property damage

  60. 60. Bottom Line: Protection & ProfitsNo matter what size the job. No matter what type of job. The cost to “Contego it” comparedto the protection achieved is minimal. For combustible materials like wood, OSB, plywood,drywall, and spray polyurethane foam, the cost is impressively low.For structural steel applications, the savings are even greater. Since Contego can be appliedby any qualified commercial paint contractor and requires no special equipment, the appliedcost per square foot is significantly lower.
