Description How to Apply
 
DC5040 is a water based thin film intumescent coating used to provide fire resistance to engineered wood framing members such as I-Joists. DC5040 is a water based thin film intumescent coating providing fire resistance to I-Joist and engineered wood framing members. Applied to the I-Joist only, once the I-Joist are installed, DC5040 provides equivalence to the 2-by-10-dimension lumber prescribed in Section R302.13, Exception 4 of the 2015 IRC® and Section R501.3, Exception 4 of the 2012 IRC®.

DC5040 has been fire tested in accordance with a full-scale ASTM E-119 and meets the fire testing requirements of ICC-ES AC14.


Features

National averages confirm that the cost per sq. ft. to install a coating vs. ½” Gypsum is about the same. Given the fact that, when using DC5040, all you must coat is the I-Joist you reduce the square footage required to be protected by 20-30% over the installation of Gypsum and hence reduce the overall cost by 20-30%!
