The Firefree Exterior System for wildfires recently received listing reports ESL-1205 and ESL-1206 from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ESL), for both ASTM E2768-11 for ignition resistance (ASTM E84 30 Minutes Extended) and ASTM D2898-10 for weatherization), confirming that our premier fire retardant coating system complies with the 2018 International Wildland Urban Interface Code prescribed under Section 503 Ignition Resistant Materials.
The Firefree Exterior System, which includes Firefree Class A covered by the Firefree Exterior topcoat is the first and only surface applied intumescent exterior coating system that meets all the ASTM fire and weatherization standards required for Wildfires by the Wildland Urban Interface (“WUI”), as also prescribed in the California Building Standards Code Section 704A.
