Intumescent Chemicals is a leading fire retardant developer, tester and manufacturer. It was acquired in 2019 by the Fire Curtains Group.

Previously the company had been working within the field of flame and fire retardant coatings for over 25 years. We offered our services based on the experience gained from the design and testing of products within this field.

We have a vast array of specially formulated and tested intumescent fire retardant formulations and materials available at various stages of development and certification. If you require a bespoke item then we can design products for specific application sectors. Click here for information on our existing products.

Unlike other companies we undertake research and development to keep our customers ahead of the competition.

We are able to supervise and advise on fire test certification programmes, we have a range of furnaces and indicative test equipment to simulate most fire tests currently in use in the UK, Europe and the USA. This equipment is all standardised to predict performance under full scale fire testing.

We assist customers with the design and operation of fire test certification programmes. This service is invaluable to companies new to the field as failure at the end of a project can be very costly.

We enable our customers to achieve early entry into the intumescent and fire retardant coatings market without the time and cost needed of building up their own in-house methods/products.

In fire testing there is no substitute for experience.

Intumescent Chemicals as a market leader employs R&D chemists and maintains a full and sophisticated laboratory. Our inventory is substantial and constantly updated in order to investigate new areas of the market.
