 Fire Retardant Coatings

 IAG Fire Retardant Coating

IAG products are a high performance thin film fire retardant coating. It has been formulated to retard the flame spread across a wide variety of materials as well as suppress the generation of smoke.

This proprietary flame retardant two-part epoxy coating creates a highly adherent fire retardant barrier on woods, metals, concrete, plastics and insulating foams. It may be used to overcoat lead and asbestos.

Flame spread classifications were developed by Underwriters Laboratories and adopted by many building codes. The classifications are based on the numerical scale ranging from 0-25 for a class I rating.

The smoke generation indices are based upon the amount of visible smoke detected when a material burns.

Flame spread requirements for building materials within code are intended to delay fire growth, providing occupants more time to escape the area and provide firefighters time to respond. IAG products were tested to the ASTME-84 standard by an independent laboratory. IAG products achieved a Class I flame spread and a Class I smoke rating. A copy of the report is available upon request.

In the event of fire, IAG coatings produces water and gases, which snuff out oxygen and provides a cooling effect at the flame front. A dense char is formed, which further protects the surface from combustion.

IAG coatings may be sprayed directly from the container, after proper mixing, using standard airless equipment.

Surfaces must be prepared according to SSPC standards. Please review the application guide and material safety data sheets prior to use.
