Firefree 88 OVERVIEW

Firefree 88 ("FF88") is a premium-quality water-based, nontoxic, thin-film intumescent fire-resistant paint. Our fully tested fire protection paint provides fire ratings required by the International Building Code for wall assemblies, floor/ceilings assemblies, roof ceiling assemblies, and individual structural members.


Firefree 88 is cost efficient: due to its superior fire-resistant performance, users need only a relatively thin layer of FF88. As a result, FF88 provides significant material and labor cost reductions. Compared to other options, savings of 30 to 70 percent and above are in reach in situations such as retrofit and historical upgrades, defective construction, new construction, or transportation.

Fully Tested and Certified

FF88 has been tested to multiple standards worldwide, including ASTM E119 (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 E84, Room Corner Test 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. Ff88 is listed and labeled by FM Approvals, listed and inspected by ICC, classified by UL, and accepted by NY MEA.

High Performance

FF88 is the first fire-resistant coating to bring a true fire barrier to a wide variety of materials and assemblies. FF88 has been proven to withstand temperatures of up to 2000° Fahrenheit for up to two hours. As a result, FF88 provides a high level of fire protection which assists in (i) containing the fire to its room of origin, (ii) limiting smoke propagation, and (iii) preserving structural integrity.

Easy to Use and Apply

Firefree 88 is easy to use. FF88 is a high-quality, nontoxic, water-based resistant (matte) paint with a smooth architectural-grade finish (white, flat), excellent adhesion, and durability. FF88 is easy to apply by brush, roller, or sprayer. In most cases, FF88 will be self-priming, thus resulting in additional cost savings. Our fire-resistant paint is nontoxic and low-odor, and it may be tinted.


Our products are safe and eco-friendly. Our fire-resistant coatings have low VOCs (<36gr/liter), which is extremely low compared to the current EFP regulations of 250gr/liter (per ASTM 3960). It is even significantly below California’s limit of 50gr/liter. This rating confirms their functionality as nonflammable, nontoxic, and environmentally friendly protective products. Additionally, Firefree 88 qualifies for LEED v4, is Green Categorized under FM Approvals, and meets Green Standards Performance under MPI GPS-01 and GPS-02.

Usable on Multiple Substrates / Assemblies

As a two-hour-rated intumescent paint, FF88 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, aluminum, spray polyurethane foam (SPF), fiberglass, carbon fiber, plastics, and other composite materials. FF88 can be used in exterior applications if covered by the Firefree Exterior Topcoat ("FfE").
