Jotachar JF750 has generated significant industry interest, securing numerous global contracts and praise from applicators, fabrication yards and operators.

Launched in 2013, Jotachar JF750 promised to help users reduce cost and save time while protecting steel structures against a broad range of hydrocarbon fire scenarios, including jet fires. Two years later, a growing amount of data and on-site customer experience has supported Jotun’s product claims. Jotun’s sales revenues for Jotachar in the first quarter of 2015 have already surpassed totals achieved in the whole of 2014.

According to John Warner, Jotun Category Manager for Intumescent Coatings, the absence of any mesh reinforcement in the Jotachar system means that the required Jotachar thickness for any fire scenario can be applied in a single day. By comparison, just 6mm is typical for traditional mesh containing products. “Independent tests show that, for a typical 6,000 m2 project, Jotachar can cut material costs by more than 20% and application time by 60%,” he says. “In addition, Jotachar removes the risk of installation errors inherent in mesh containing systems, while minimising installation time and cost. This has the effect of significantly reducing project complexity and improving profitability for the installer.”
