KARAFAS IS 200
Solvent based fire protection coating for interior and exterior application
fire protection coating system for structural steelwork. For steelwork located in indoor situations,
Primer for steel karacoat® PEZ or
Primer for galvanized steel karacoat® PEZG
Solvent based fire protection coating
karafas® IS 200 - interior use
Top coat karafas® IS
No top coat required for internal dry environments
Except, for colored decorative finish.
for indoor and outdoor use on structural steel members like columns, girders and framework with a highly effective protection to delay the steel from reaching its critical temperature. Note: With critical situation i. e. frequent formation of condensation and/or heating up of surfaces above 45° C, possible special measures should be taken.

*Note: Ratio dft / wft varies depending on the
Not below + 5 °C, to max. + 50° C
Max. 80 %. Application temperature should be at least 3°C above dew point. In case relative humidity exceeds 80% special measures must be taken to prevent the condensation forming while application.
Checking and pre-treatment: see Technical Data
Sheet on Primers - measure and take note of
Existing primer thicknesses.
A compatibility test on the existing anticorrosive
Primer/coatings with the fire protection system is
Any damage (impact, corrosion, etc.) should be
Repaired prior the coating.
Stir thoroughly, free of lumps
Equipment up to a transmission > 45:1. Screens and filters must be removed; hose diameter not below 3/8", hoses must be solvent resistant. Nozzle size
0, 46 - 0, 66 mm/0,019 - 0027". (See also separate Technical Information Sheet on airless application.)
Note: The karangin fire protection coat shall be applied in several coats up to the final dry film thickness required. Wet film thickness approx. 400 urn for 1 st application coat on primer. Wet film thickness approx. 500 urn for each subsequent application coat is recommended.
Several coats are necessary.
Approx. 15 hours for each fire protection coat for
Exterior use at 20°C object temperature and 65%
Lower temperatures, higher relative humidity and
Different fire protection coating thicknesses can
karafas® IS 100 requires a minimum of 48 hours
Drying before the application of top coat karacoat®
Through-drying of can be checked by „fingernail-test".
During application and drying of total karangin
coating system including karafas® IS 100 top
coat as well as transportation special protection
measures must be taken against weathering.
For decorative reasons we recommend the
karafas® S top coat produced in RAL colour
Shades or on request for special shades e.g. NCS
(See separate Technical Data Sheet for top coats -
1 x180g/m2, 140ml/m2).
Cleaning of equipment: Cleaning of apparatus immediately after use with
