Verification of Quality during surface preparation and spray-applied fireproofing systems and intumescent coatings is highly desirable to achieve the desired hourly ratings for fire protection.  QA inspections provide verification that the contractor’s QC practices are adequate to achieve the desired final product according to the painting specification.
