Protective & Marine Coatings.

FIRETEX FX2005 is designed for in-shop application by airless spray, to provide fire resistance for up to 120 minutes on structural steel.

After appropriate drying, FIRETEX FX2005 specifications can be exposed to the weather for up to 6 months provided that the specific use or storage does not lead to ponding water due to rainfall, condensation or other site/transportation/storage circumstances.

Airless Spray

Dry 1400

Wet 1867


To touch: 30 minutes (@ 15°C), 20 minutes (@ 23°C)

To recoat: 4 hours (@ 15°C), 4 hours (@ 23°C)

To handle: This will depend on the total thickness of FIRETEX FX2005 to be applied.

These figures are given as a guide only. Factors such as air movement and humidity must also be considered.


FIRETEX FX2005 can resist normal weather conditions for up to 6 months without topcoat provided it has had appropriate drying prior to exposure. After this time period an appropriate top coat shall be applied.

If the specifi c use or storage could lead to prolonged contact with water due to rainfall, condensation, or other site / transportation/storage circumstances, then a recommended topcoat must be used to prevent damage to the basecoat.


For in-shop application, use FIRETEX C69 Fast-Track Blast Primer

Several primers have been approved for use under FIRETEX FX2005. Please consult Sherwin-Williams for detailed information.


For certain dry, internal situations where the fi nal colour / appearance is not critical, then FIRETEX FX2005 may remain un-topcoated.

For externally exposed steelwork and severe internal environments Acrolon C137V2 or Acrolon C237 must be used as a topcoat. For other internal environments where a topcoat is required then FIRETEX M71V2 or Sher-Cryl M770 should be used.

In all instances for subsequent re-decoration, use FIRETEX M71V2, Sher-Cryl M770, Acrolon C137V2 or Acrolon C237 as appropriate.


A single component material

  • Pack Size: 200 litre and 20 litre units
  • Weight: 1.32 kg/litre
  • Shelf Life: 2 years from date of manufacture or ‘Use By’ date where specifi ed.


FIRETEX FX2005 is designed for use over a suitably prepared and primed substrate.

Ensure surfaces to be coated are clean, dry and free from all surface contamination.

Under certain circumstances it may be possible to apply FIRETEX FX2005 directly to steel blast cleaned to a minimum standard of Sa2½ BS EN ISO 8501-1:2007, surface profi le in the range 50-100 microns. Consult Sherwin-Williams for further details.


Airless Spray

Nozzle Size: 21 – 27 thou ( 0.53 – 0.69mm ) depending on application requirements

Fan Angle: 30°

Operating Pressure: 210kg/cm² (3000 psi)

The details of airless spray tip orifi ce size, fan angle and pressure are given as a guide. Smaller fan angles should be used where the size of the work to be sprayed makes this appropriate. It may be found that slight variation in tip orifi ce size or pressure will provide optimum atomisation in some circumstances. In general, the operating pressure should be the lowest possible consistent with satisfactory atomisation.

Recommended Equipment : Use a 56:1 or 68:1 Graco King or equivalent. Use 3/8” (9.53mm) ID fl uid lines where lengths in excess of 3 metres are required. In-line gun or pump filters should not normally be used. Maximum length of fl uid line should not exceed 60 metres.

For use on narrow web sections, the smallest tip recommended is a 21 thou (0.53mm ) with a 60 mesh pump fi lter.


This material should preferably be applied at temperatures in excess of 5ºC. In conditions of high relative humidity, ie 80-85% good ventilation conditions are essential. Substrate temperature shall be at least 3ºC above the dew point and always above 0°C.

The material must be protected from moisture during the drying period. Moisture ingress prior to drying may affect the integrity and fi re protective properties of the coating.

No more than 2 coats by airless spray should be applied within any 24 hour period.

If the maximum recommended thickness per coat is exceeded or high fi lm thicknesses are overcoated prematurely, cracking may occur.

FIRETEX FX2005 is capable of withstanding external exposure without topcoat providing:

  • The product is allowed to dry for at least 24 hours at 15°C in dry conditions with good air movement and ventilation. These conditions are based on a total dry film thickness of up to 800 microns. The drying time required will be increased if the fi lm thickness is greater than 800 microns.
  • The substrate temperature is at least 3°C above the dew point at the time of application and during the drying period.


Maximum service temperature is 70°C. At temperatures greater than 40°C thermoplasticity may be observed.

Dry Film Thickness Measurement 

All dft specifi cations quoted are mean values, measurements should be taken for I-Sections to the following recommendations:

Web – 2 per 100cm length

Flange – (upper, lower, inside and outside) – 1 per 100cm length

High dft’s and/or reduced temperatures will extend the drying time and hence the period when dft measurement can be carried out accurately.

For further information refer to Sherwin-Williams.


Small areas of mechanical damage can be repaired using FIRETEX M72, FX1005 or FX2005 as preferred.

Larger areas of mechanical damage should be repaired using FIRETEX FX1005 or FX2005 as preferred, applied by brush or spray.

All repairs should then have the original topcoat reinstated by brush or spray as required.

Numerical values quoted for physical data may vary slightly from batch to batch.
