Protect adjacent areas from over spray of fireproofing trchnical. Grind smooth all weld spatter and defects prior to commencement of fire protection installation. We have a problem with stucco that was applied directly over concrete that is now losing adhesion.

Requests for substitutions must be made 30 days prior to submittal and contain the full name of each product, descriptive literature, testing data collected from industry consensus standard testing, data on past performance, manufacturer’s instruction for use and generic type.

Commencement of installation is acceptance of substrate.

Technical Manual 12-B

The concrete could also have been considerably drier than the portland cement plaster when it was applied and absorbed too much of the moisture from the mix to ensure proper curing. Deliver materials in manufacturer’s original, sealed, undamaged container with identification label intact. Before proceeding with the work, the installer will apply the primer, factory-manufactured architectural fire protection sections and techncial top coat to a representative substrate section of 10 square feet in size.

If necessary for job schedule, tchnical General Contractor shall provide enclosures and heat to maintain proper temperatures and humidity levels in the application areas. Temperature and Humidity Requirements: Architectural Fire Protection Installer: Areas will be designated by the Architect. The use of a bonding agent may also improve the bond of portland tefhnical plaster applied over relatively slick concrete, but the literature warns that one should ensure that it is an exterior grade bonding agent because a cheaper interior grade of bonding agent may not provide adequate bond.


In other words, the concrete can’t be too slick or too dry. International Paint, LLC, which is located at: Information must demonstrate equivalence of product and performance to the specified material and complete systems.

Factory manufactured architectural fire protection system will be a complete system from manaul single source consisting of primer, factory manufactured twchnical protection sections, section adhesive, edge sealant and decorative topcoat. Equipment and installation procedures must conform to the factory-manufactured architectural fire protection manufacturer’s installation instructions.

This page can be found at mxnual Provide masking, drop cloths or other suitable coverings to prevent overspray onto surfaces not intended to be affected by Work in this section. Upon completion of installation, all excess material, overspray and debris must be cleared and removed from the job site.


Others claim that the instructions tecbnical that the sample beam must be tested 12 inches from the end s of the member. All patching and repair to factory-manufactured architectural fire protection material, due to damage by other trades, will be performed under this section and paid for by the trade responsible for the damage. All products listed in this section must be manufactured under the appropriate follow-up service with each container bearing the certified label mark.


A copy of the transport document and manufacturers conformance certificate shall be attached to the material delivery QC form. All surfaces to receive the factory-manufactured architectural fire protection material must be clean, dry and free of oil, grease, loose mill scale, dirt, dust or other foreign substances which would impair bond of the architectural fire protection material to the substrate.

That’s where reading the earlier material comes in handy. The fire protection material inspection must be performed prior to the application of the decorative top coat. All batch number, product identification and quantities shall manal recorded on appropriate QC documents. Company specializing in manufacturing products listed twchnical this section with a minimum of ten years documented experience. Sample frequency will be pre-determined by the architect and testing performed by an independent testing laboratory or the tecunical architectural fire protection manufacturer.

Primer applied at the steel fabricators shop must be in texhnical with the provisions of Section A stand-alone reading of section 6.

Technical Manual B

Some argue that when testing a beam, the thickness must be tested in nine locations around the beam every 12 inches. Send your questions to jones awci. There are several diagrams in B, but they are cross-sections of a beam, a column, a tube and a truss; the cross section of the beam includes arrows indicating the nine points around the beam where the film thickness of the TFIFRM is to be measured.
