Monokote® is a low-cost, gypsum-based, cementitious spray applied fireproofing designed for an easy, fast application to steel and concrete substrates.
At Nurse Stucco, we offer complete commercial fireproofing applications, as well as tenant improvement Monokote patching and repair services for existing projects.
Monokote® is a popular fireproofing material used in office buildings, schools, hospitals, warehouses, and other large buildings that are constructed out of concrete and steel. Resembling wet cement, Monokote® fireproofing spray is applied throughout a building’s interior in order to help prevent structural failure during a high-temperature blaze.
In San Diego, building codes require the use of “passive” fire-protection materials like Monokote® in certain structures. Not only will this help prevent a building from collapsing, but it will give the occupants of a building more time to escape in the event of a fire. This latter benefit is especially important in high-occupancy structures where people can become trapped inside if the right precautions haven’t been taken.
Who Makes Monokote®
Monokote® MK-6 high-density cementitious fireproofing has been developed by Grace Construction Products to meet specialty and industrial fireproofing requirements requiring greater resistance to harsh environments. Monokote® MK-6 is a Portland cement-based, factory-mixed material requiring only the addition of water on the job for applications.
It is spray-applied, providing up to 4 hours of fire resistance. Its physical characteristics are excellent for areas exposed to environmental or climatic conditions. Monokote® may be used in areas where high durability and corrosion resistance is required, such as substrates subjected to exterior exposure.
