Fire Resistant Paint

Water Based Intumescent Paint
Applicable for
  • Gypsum
  • Steel
  • Wood
  • An eco-friendly intumescent paint for most building materials.
  • 100% tested and certified to ASTM E119 fire endurance ratings that require 1 or 2 hour fire protection.
  • 100% tested and certified to ASTM E84/UL 723, Class "A" flame spread.


FlameOFF Fire Barrier Paint is an intumescent paint that can be applied to most building materials. Structural steel is the most commonly protected material, but protection can include other materials such as sheet metal, sheetrock, wood, composite panels, fiberglass, interior woods, and carbon graphite.

FlameOFF Coatings, Inc. provides intumescent fire protection that exceeds many ASTM E119 listing standards. Our intumescent products and operations are audited and listed by a certified third party lab to ensure that our intumescent products perform as expected to insure building fire safety.

FlameOFF Coatings, Inc. manufactures intumescent coatings that are IBC/NFPA Code Compliant for ASTM E119 fire endurance ratings that require 1 or 2 hour fire protection in accordance with UL 263 (ASTM E119), CAN / ULC-S101 and ISO 834 standards.

To achieve the proper fire rating our coating must be applied to the specific Dry Film Thickness (DFT) listed on our test. The Wet Film Thickness (WFT) can be applied up to 40 mils per coat but for applicators not experienced with applying our product we recommend applying additional coast at lessor amounts to achieve the required DFT.

Note: Top coat may be applied to FlameOFF Fire Barrier Paint allowing a decorative look to be achieved.

More Information

Read thoroughly FlameOFF's Product Brochure and Warranty.


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 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).
Hose Length: 50' (45 m) minimum.
Material Hose: 1/2" I.D.

Safety & Cleanup

Cleanup: Pump, Gun, Tips and Hoses and mixer should be cleaned at least once per day.

Safety: follow all safety precautions on the Material Safety Data Sheet.

Overspray: all adjacent and finished surfaces shall be protected from damage and overspray.


Product may be applied by brush or spray application. Do not Roll. Spray application is recommended for the optimum appearance.

Airless Spray

A single coat built up with a number of quick passes allows greater control over quantities, thickness and finish.
Note: in most conditions, it is advantageous to apply two thin coats rather than one thick coat.

Application Rates

Spray: 45 mils (1.14 mm) per coat (wet).
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.

Application Conditions

Minimum: 45 Degrees Fahrenhiet.
Maximum: 105 Degrees Fahrenheit.
Do not apply when humidity is greater than 95%.

Storage / Handeling / Shipping

Shelf Life: 8 months when kept at recommended storage conditions and in original unopened containers.
Shipping Weight: 12 lbs. per gallon.
Flash Point (setaflash): 86°F (30°C).
Storage: store indoors in a dry environment between 32°F - 105°F (0°C - 40°C).
Packaging: 5 gallons.

We recommend the applicator to check the Wet film thickness in various areas when applying the fireproofing.

Small Cracks

Small hair line cracks can be repaired by applying brush coats. Brush coats can be applied in multiple coats to achieve the desired DFT thickness.

Once the brush coats have filled in the hair line cracks. The finish shall be smooth and uniformed.

Large Cracks

Large cracks must be taken off as far back as the loss of adhesion has occurred. A 5 in 1 knife can be used to scrap the cracked area.

For larger cracks due to over applying the coating. Use a utility knife and cut back the area where the adhesion is good. Rough the area and then spray or brush coat until the thickness is achieved. The finish shall be smooth and uniformed.

After Patching

After patching the damaged area. Allow the coating to cure and re-check the DFT of the finished area.
