Torlife™ WB System

Overview


The Torlife™ WB system provides an extremely hard-wearing decorative finish combined with a Class 0 fire rating when applied to new, bare or stripped surfaces. In the event of a fire, the coating system inhibits the surface spread of flame across the painted surfaces.
Graffiti can be removed from the painted surfaces by using the Tor range of Graffiti removers. This allows the fire rating of the coated surfaces to be maintained throughout the life of the system.
