FIREFREE CLASS A, COST EFFICIENT FIRE RETARDANT
Firefree Class A meets all of the "ASTM E-84 Class A" ratings, including the 30-minute extended, at the recommended application rates.
Firefree Class A is:
Cost efficient: as a result of its' superior fire retardant performance, only a thin layer of FFA will be required. As a result, FFA provides significant material and labor cost reductions, resulting in significant savings (35% and above) compared to costs associated with other fire retardant coatings.
Easy to use: FFA is a high quality, non-toxic, water based retardant (matte) paint with excellent adhesion and durability and is easy to apply by brush, roller or sprayer. In most cases, FFA will be self-priming, thus resulting in additional cost savings.
Firefree Class A can be applied to a wide range of combustible materials and assemblies including oriented strand board (OSB), plywood, dimensional lumber, wood joists and trusses, wood paneling and sheathing, and associated lumber. Its use is recommended for residential, multifamily, commercial and industrial projects where a Class A fire rating is required.
