    a barrier sub-layer that is substantially impervious to ambient moisture, the barrier sub-layer comprising a first polymer having a first glass transition temperature, the first polymer present in an amount ranging from about 70 wt. % to about 100 wt. % based on the total weight of the barrier sub-layer;

    an intumescent sub-layer comprising the intumescent composition and a second polymer having a second glass transition temperature;

    wherein the barrier sub-layer is atop the intumescent sub-layer and the intumescent sub-layer is atop the cellulosic layer; and

    wherein the first glass transition temperature being equal to or less than the second glass transition temperature; and

    wherein the barrier sub-layer contacts the intumescent sub-layer, and the uppermost exposed surface of the topcoat layer is formed by the barrier sub-layer.
