Protective coatings need to adhere to steel and other substrates, even at extremely high
temperatures.
When a building catches fire, intumescent coatings heat up and expand 10 to 75 times their
original thickness, so 1 millimeter of coating could expand to as much as 40 to 50 millimeters.

Without strong adhesion, the coating flakes off, exposing steel to intense
heat. When steel heats up to 1,000°F/535°C (the temperature a building fire quickly and easily
exceeds), it loses half its strength.
At 1,000°F/535°C, a steel beam supporting 200 tons can only support half that weight, putting the
structure at risk of collapsing. In a fire, steel softens and deforms, so much so that if heated to
1,200°F/650°C you could easily bend a giant steel beam.

Strong adhesion in acrylic copolymer latex paint allows the coating to stick to
the steel, even when heat causes the steel to lose shape. Additionally, the
intumescent coating keeps the steel from reaching those dangerous temperatures by insulating
the substrate, even at elevated ambient temperatures, such as in a fire.

A dozen small spots of Earth are lit up, as if by a spotlight. In each spot, a large human figure waves to us.
They are all BOYS and GIRLS.
The globe disappears, and all the small spots turn white. They turn into WHITE TABLETS ON A CONVEYOR
BELT in a...
TESTING LAB
The tablets move through a bizarre testing machine, that hammers the tablets, dissolves them in water,
burns them, etc. At the end, one shiny tablet is still intact.
Two DOCTORS in white lab coats lean in to examine the tablet with magnifying glasses.
A big traffic light device in the machine goes GREEN.
The doctors nod satisfied. This tablet has passed the safety test.
One of the doctors flicks the tablet into his mouth and swallows it.

DOCTOR'S OFFICE
In a doctor's office, a girl walks cautiously with a blindfold on her eyes, her hands outstretched as if playing
blind man's buff.
She reaches for a doctor - whose hands are also outstretched, a bottle of medicine in each, one with the
question mark and the other with the exclamation mark. (Note: we don't see the doctor's face)
The young patient takes the bottle with the exclamation mark.
Finally the face of the doctor is revealed: she is wearing a blindfold as well!
