Aircraft Coatings


Flame Control No. 180 is an intumescent type, fire resistant coating. The fire protective characteristics of No. 180 are equal to No. 173. When attacked by fire, the coating puffs up (intumesces) and forms a thick dense fire barrier, thus affording  maximum burn through (fire) protection. This foam layer  retards the penetration of heat to the substrate, thus insulating the surface. Aluminum panels 0.050 inches thick coated with No. 173 to a dry film thickness of 0.033 inches, and spot repaired with No. 180, have successfully passed the standard FAA 2000°F fire test, while panels were being subjected to simulated engine take off and operating conditions. The coated panels completed the FAA 15 minute requirement, with approximately a 50% time safety margin (in excess of 22 minutes before failure).
