Abstract : A fire protective coating and method for applying same to a composite structure are provided. The coating is a composition of matter comprising a phenolic resin and strength reinforcing fibers embedded within the phenolic resin. The method of coating the structure with the composition of matter uses a phenolic resin in the liquid state. In this way, a mixture of the phenolic resin and strength reinforcing fibers can be applied to the structure's surface by conventional spraying techniques. As the mixture on the surface cures, a fire protective coating is formed on the structure's surface.
