Problem vs Solution
- Fireproofing previously installed on the columns had begun to spall and crack due to water infiltration and freeze/thaw cycles
- Owner needed a solution to retain existing fireproofing and restore what was lost
- FireSeal™ FP Confinement was designed to protect new & existing fireproofing from future water infiltration
- Original fire rating remained in place after inspection of FireSeal™ and restored fireproofing
- Service life was extended by 20 years
