Product Details


The PITT-CHAR XP coating is PPG’s solvent-free epoxy intumescent coating, which provides excellent protection against intense hydrocarbon pool and jet fires. An extremely robust coating, its unique flexibility protects steel against mechanical abuse and ensures intact fire protection after explosive incidents that often coincide with petrochemical hydrocarbon fires. It is trusted worldwide to provide most durable protection against solvents, acids, alkalis, salts and abrasion, while retaining its advanced fire and corrosion protection properties. All this makes the PITT-CHAR XP coating the ideal PFP choice for harsh weather conditions, chemical environments, and virtually any hostile industrial situation.
