Protecting Against Rapid-Rise Hydrocarbon Fires
Hydrocarbon fires can reach excessively high temperatures in a matter of minutes — or less. Structural steel under load can lose 20 percent of its yield strength at 950 F (500 C), and over half of its integrity at 1100 F (593 C). A near-total depletion of strength quickly follows at 2200 F (1204 C).
Under conditio... Read more...More Product Announcements from Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings
