Can Waterborne Intumescent Coatings be used Externally?

The specification of a waterborne intumescent coating, including application of a top seal (finish coat), does not automatically qualify the system as being suitable for use in external environments.  When exposed externally to rain and UV, the durability performance of any coating system is put to the test.  In the case of intumescent coatings the incorrect specification of the coating for the particular exposure conditions can ultimately lead to a severe degradation in the fire performance of the coating.
