High Performance Fire Resistant and Flame Retardant Paint

Please refer to the Firefree 88 and Firefree Class A product pages or contact us for detailed information.

How do your products work?

Firefree coatings will expand (intumesce) many times from their original thickness when exposed to flame or extremely high heat (350° Fahrenheit). During this process the coating will produce a char, which insulates the surface reducing heat release, smoke development and flame spread dramatically reducing the chances of flashover occurring.

Our paints can be applied to most substrates used in the construction and transportation industries including wood, gypsum board (sheetrock, plasterboard), lathe and plaster, concrete, masonry, embossed/pressed metal tin, thin gauge metal, galvanized steel and aluminum, spray polyurethane foam (SPF), fiberglass, carbon fiber, plastics and other composite etc.

Firefree products are approved and used in construction, both new, retrofit and defective, (residential, commercial, industrial and government), insulation and transportation. The projects using our products included historic properties, schools, health care (hospitals, assisted living…), apartments, condominium, ,high-rises, hotels, stores, restaurants, oil and solar facilities, government facilities, military applications and facilies, transportation (aerospace, aviation, light rail, maritime, energy…. Our products' uses include walls, floor, ceilings, doors, shaft walls, attics, decorative panels and structures, automotive, airplane, ship and train parts, lithium batteries, shipping containers, playgrounds, mining structures, military equipment etc.

Firefree 88 and Firefree Class A comes in a white, flat, smooth architectural finish. Both products can be tinted. Alternatively they can be top coated with most paints to achieve the desired color, texture and finish.

  • Firefree 88 is our premier intumescent fire resistant coating tested to comply with fire ratings performance prescribed under the International Building Code. These standards involve (i) fire resistant testing which measures a product’s ability to prevent fire penetration over a period of time, such as ASTM E 119, FM 4975, ASTM E 662-97, ASTM E 3675-98, ASTM E 162-98, ASTM E 1354-94, ASTM E 814, BS 476, AS 1530.3 AS 1530.4. EN 13501-1, and fire retardant testing such as ASTM E 84 and Room Corner Test standards including UBC 8-2, NFPA 286, UBC 26-3 (Part 1 of FM Class 4880), measuring a product’s ability to limit flashover.
  • Firefree Class A is our flame retardant paint classified as Class “A” rating per ASTM E 84 and ASTM E 84, 30 minute extended. These standards involve fire retardant tests which measures a product’s ability to slow down horizontal flame spread and smoke development.

The testing has been performed on a vast number of wall, floor/ceiling and roof ceiling assemblies both full scale and small scale, in load bearing conditions and non-load bearing conditions including hose stream testing where applicable. Additional testing has been performed to Factory Mutual test standard as well as transportation, maritime and aviation test standards.

Firefree products have been tested to a wide variety of international standards including ASTM E 119 (1 and 2 hours), FM 4975, ASTM E 662-97, ASTM E 3675-98, ASTM E 162-98, ASTM E 1354-94, ASTM E 814, ASTM E 84, ASTM E 84 Extended 30 minutes, Room Corner Test standards including UBC 8-2, NFPA 286, UBC 26-3 (Part 1 of FM Class 4880), BS 476 in England, AS 1530.3, 1530.4, in Australia, EN 13501 in Poland, and SISIR door test standards in Singapore.

Firefree 88 is listed and labeled by FM Approvals, a division of FM Global, and classified by Underwriters Laboratories (U/L), listed by CA SFM Building Materials and accepted by NY Material and Equipment Acceptance Division. FF88’s FM Approval Diamond is recognized internationally, including in the UAE.

Firefree testing is conducted at IAS/ICC (IAS www.iasonline.org) third party accredited laboratories, which are subject to yearly calibration and certification and are competent and comply with Industry and / or International Standards.

The dry film thickness to be applied will vary depending on the fire rating being required and the material/substrate and assembly construction being coated. We will assist in providing the proper technical advice to assist clients in determining the adequate thickness.

We sell and ship fireproofing solutions in all five continents for private, corporate and governmental projects. We have customers and projects all over the world from the Americas (US, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Venezuela…) to Asia (Australia, India, Indonesia, Philippines…) to Africa (Nigeria…) and the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuweit…).

Yes, our fireproof coatings are safe and eco-friendly. They have has low VOCs ( <36gr/liter) which is extremely low compared to the current EFP regulations of 250gr/liter (per ASTM D3960). It is even significantly below California’s limit of 50gr/liter confirming that our products are non-flammable and non toxic.

Firefree 88 is certified under CDPH Method V1.2 (meeting the VOC emissions guidelines set by US Green Buildings). Additionally Firefree 88 qualifies for LEED Version 4, is Green Categorized under Factory Mutual, and meets Green Standards Performance under MPI GPS01 and GPS-02.

Yes, the process is similar to applying a regular water-based latex paint. Our paints can be brushed, rolled or sprayed using an airless spray gun. Additionally because of their high percentage of solids, our products will have an excellent spread rate and coverage.

Firefree 88 is manufactured under FM Approvals QC and surveillance inspections.

No, in most cases our products do not require the use of a primer, unless you are painting over high gloss enamels or exposed, unprimed metal. In most cases, surfaces to be coated would be prepared, as would normally be done before the application of any paint. For high gloss finishes or bare metal, apply one coat of an appropriate type primer prior to an application of the Firefree coating.
