Blazeguard Fire-Retardant Paint: Field Applied Class A Flame Spread Protection

Barrier Technology products have been protecting people and property from fire for more than 20 years. A relatively recent addition to our product line is Blazeguard Fire-Retardant Paint, a proprietary intumescent paint that can be applied in the field. Intumescent paints are those that swell and char when exposed to flame, forming an insulative barrier between a fire and its fuel (often but not always wood).

Blazeguard Fire-Retardant Paint provides combustible construction materials a 10-minute, Class A Flame Spread Rating as required by ASTM E-84. Our formulation contains no volatile organic components (VOCs), is low odor and non-hazardous to apply and use. The paint can be applied in the field by following the directions in our Blazeguard Fire-Retardant Paint Application Guide.

Blazeguard Fire-Retardant Paint's intended use is for interior applications where a Class A Flame Spread Rating is required by building code. It has excellent adhesion to wood, OSB, drywall, and concrete. The dried paint features enough elasticity so that it won't chip/crack/flake or blister. Blazeguard Fire-Retardant Paint can be over-coated with commercial latex paints.

Coverage Rate: 120 square feet/gallon
Flame Spread Index: 5
Smoke Developed Index: 150
Color: White
Quantity Available: 5 gallon pails, 55 gallon drums

Blazeguard Fire-Retardant Paint is an Underwriters Laboratory (UL) Classified Product.
