Abstract: This paper used the TPS to measure the thermal conductivity of several different spray applied fire resistive materials between a temperature of 20-1000°C. Mass loss and thermal strain were also investigated. These properties are crucial components of the material, and decide how effectively it will perform in the face of a fire. Temperature was found to have a significant impact on the thermal conductivity, mass loss and thermal strain. These results enabled the authors to develop thermal property relationships which could be used in predictive modeling.
