For various reasons, including (i) the very different circumstances that may exist from one fire to another, (ii) the differences between conditions in an actual fire and laboratory conditions in which testing is conducted and (iii) the inherent variability of fire tests, passing a laboratory test or certifying/labeling any Firefree coating for use in specific assemblies/systems, does not mean that the same application of such Firefree coating will necessarily provide equivalent protection or the same result in an actual fire or in a new laboratory test. Firefree coatings will only contribute to slowing fire spread for the area where applied and will not, by themselves, prevent a fire from starting or continuing. The amount by which Firefree coatings retard a particular fire will depend, among other things, on (i) the amount of Firefree coating applied, (ii) the conditions of the other elements of the assembly incorporating a Firefree coating and (iii) the conditions of the fire itself. Firefree coatings will not make a fire any less dangerous to persons or property. Firefree Coatings, Inc. cannot guarantee that loss or injury will not be suffered by persons or property as a result of a fire. It is the sole responsibility of the applicator to ensure that Firefree coatings are applied in accordance with the application directions. It is the responsibility of the occupier to ensure the paint is not cracked, chipped or peeling.
