FF88®, a highly effective fireproof coating for San Jose buildings, can be applied smoothly using different methods like an airless sprayer, roller, or brush. Each method requires following certain guidelines to guarantee the best application and performance.

Airless Sprayer Application: For applying FF88® with an airless sprayer, operating at a pressure range of 780 to 3300 psi is crucial. A spray tip ranging from .015 to .023 is ideal, with a heavy-duty fan width of 4 inches to 12 inches (10.16 cm to 30.48 cm) recommended. To achieve optimal results, it is essential to maintain the fire resistant paint consistency and use a dedicated spray line. This method ensures a uniform and smooth coating, suitable for large-scale applications.

Roller Application: When using a roller, opt for a 1-1/4” (20-25mm) nap synthetic cover to achieve a heavy, even layer. Other rollers can be utilized depending on the texture and finish you desire. This method is particularly effective for covering large, flat surfaces at San Jose properties with fire retardant coatings and provides a consistent finish with ease.

Brush Application: For areas requiring more precise application, it is advisable to use a nylon or fully loaded brush. You can also use a laying-on technique to minimize brush marks, which is especially important for visible surfaces or detailed work.
Make sure to store FfA correctly so it stays effective. Keep it between 50°F and 85°F (10°C to 29°C) since it's sensitive to freezing temperatures. Always keep the noncombustible paint in its original, unopened containers and follow these storage guidelines to avoid compromising its quality. Proper storage is crucial for maintaining the paint's effectiveness.
These are the guidelines one should follow:
  • • Use safety goggles to keep paint particles out of your eyes.
  • • Protect your skin and clothing by wearing gloves, particularly if you'll be exposed for an extended period.
  • • Respiratory protection is recommended though not required. Ensure proper ventilation or wear a half mask to prevent inhaling paint particles and dust.
  • • Wash your hands and any exposed skin thoroughly after handling the paint.
  • • Seal the paint container securely after each use and store it away from children's reach.
Firefree Coatings guarantees the quality of its fire resistant coatings with a 10-year limited warranty. This warranty guarantees that the fire retardant coatings applied to your San Jose property will not crack, peel, or chip for 10 years if you follow our application and maintenance guidelines. If defects occur under these conditions, Firefree Coatings will provide the necessary materials to repaint the affected area at no extra cost.

The warranty does not cover labor costs or any incidental or consequential damages. Claimants must notify us in writing within 10 days of finding a defect, include proof of purchase, evidence of following application instructions, and documentation of the defect. The warranty is void if the product is mishandled, modified, mixed with other products, or used more than two years after purchase. Not following proper storage, application, or inspections practices specified by Firefree will also invalidate the warranty.
