Fire Retardant Spray

Liquid Flame Retardant for Fabrics
  • An eco-friendly clear fire retardant spray for use on fabrics, paper, carpet and other similar materials.
  • 100% tested and certificated to NFPA 701 flammability fire rating.

Overview

FlameOFF Fire Retardant Spray is a clear liquid that may be sprayed on with a simple spray applicator.

Primarily used on fabrics that need to meet NFPA 701 flammability fire rating but can also be used on paper, carpet and other similar materials.

Our fabric spray should be applied until the surface is wet to the touch and sprayed evenly across the entire surface and all edges. If applied in building requiring an inspection then an NFPA 701 label must be applied on all curtains and items protected for the inspector.

All surfaces must be primed and be clean, dry, and free of oil, grease, loose mil scale, dirt, dust or other materials that would impair the bonding of FlameOFF paint to the substrate.

Primer

Primer must be applied to the steel substrate.

Dry Film / Wet Film Thickness

The applied thickness of FlameOFF paint will depend on the size / shape of the substrate. The detail design will show the required thickness of each member. Contact FlameOFF Coatings, Inc. for a detail design guide.

Mixing and Thinning

Mixer: use 1/2" electric or air driven drill with a slotted paddle mixer (300 rpm under load).

Mixing: FlameOFF must be mixed using a 1/2" electric air driven drill with a slotted paddle or Jiffy mixer blade. Mix material for a minimum of 5 minutes to achieve the necessary texture required before spraying.

Thinning: do not thin.

Airless Spray

Use 1.0 gal. per minute electric airless (minimum)to provide an operating pressure of 2,000 p.s.i. (320kg/cm2). Remove rock catcher from siphon tube.

Spray Gun

Contractor Gun (with filter removed) or equivalent.

Spray Tips: 0.019" - 0.029".
Fan Size: 4"-10" (depending on section being sprayed).

Brush: 10 mils (0.25 mm) per coat (wet).
7 hour recoat time - see Application Guide.

Wet Film Thickness

Frequent thickness measurements with a wet film gauge are recommended during the application process to ensure uniform thickness.

Dry Film Thickness

Final thickness must be measured using an electronic dry film thickness gauge. For method of thickness determination and tolerances refer to:

  • AWCI TechnicalManual 12-B (Standard Practice for the Testing and Inspection of Field Applied Thin Film Intumescent Materials).
  • International Building Code - IBC 1705.14.
