FF88 Paint: High-Quality Intumescent Fire-Resistant Coating


Firefree 88 (“FF88”) is a premium-quality, water-based, nontoxic, thin film intumescent fire retardant and resistant paint. Our Firefree 88 paint is fully tested to provide fire ratings required by the International Building Code for wall assemblies, floor/ceilings assemblies, roof ceiling assemblies and individual structural members. With a proper intumescent fire resistant coating, a structure can withstand heat that would destroy most buildings, allowing vital time for occupantsto exit in emergencies and for fire responders to save the building.

Cost efficient

Firefree 88 is cost-effective: as a result of its superior fire resistant performance, only a relatively thin layer of FF88 paint will be needed. Consequently, FF88 provides notable material and labor cost reductions (savings of 30 to 70% and above) when compared to other options in situations such as retrofits and historical upgrades, defective construction, new construction or transportation.

Fully tested and certified

FF88 paint 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

FireFree 88 paint is the first coating to bring a true fire barrier to a wide variety of materials and assemblies. FF88 has been shown 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 simple to use. FF88 is a non-toxic, high-quality, water-based resistant (matte) paint with an excellent adhesion and durability and smooth architectural-grade finish (white, flat). It is easy to apply by roller, sprayer, or brush. In most cases, FF88 will be self-priming, thus resulting in additional cost savings. It is non-toxic, has low odor and may be tinted.


Our products are eco-friendly and safe. They have low VOCs (<36gr/liter) which is extremely low compared to the current EPA regulations of 250gr/liter (per ASTM 3960). It is even significantly lower than California’s limit of 50gr/liter. This proves that they are non-toxic, non-flammable and environmentally friendly. 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

FF88 can be applied to most substrates used in the construction and transportation industries. These materials include wood, lathe and plaster, and gypsum board (sheetrock, plasterboard). This paint can also be applied to other materials, such as concrete, masonry, embossed/pressed metal tin, thin gauge metal, galvanized steel and aluminum, spray polyurethane foam (SPF), fiberglass, carbon fiber, plastics and other composite materials.
