Flamex PF fire retardant spray penetrates the material and becomes part of its molecular structure. When the treated material is subjected to an open flame, Flamex PF will reduce the flame spread on wood and self-extinguish the flame of most fabrics if treated properly. Flamex PF flame retardant spray is non-toxic and non-hazardous to the environment and simple to apply.
Class A rated with a 25 flame spread 95 smoke developed. Since Flamex PF flame retardant spray penetrates and becomes part of the substrate. the life of the flame retardant is indefinite as long as fabrics are not wet washed, however, they may be dry cleaned up to two times without having to reapply. Flamex PF flame retardant spray has many uses and is our most universal flame retardants. Flamex PF flame retardant spray is not a coating instead it penetrates and becomes part of the substrate. This product will not alter the structural integrity of the substrate. Flamex PF flame retardant spray is often chosen because it is non-toxic, dries clear, easy (spray, brush or roll) application. Once cured (12 hrs.) The treated material may be painted with a latex paint.
Flamex PF fire retardant spray is used for interior applications such as draperies, wall coverings, furniture, cotton, paper, straw, wood, etc. This product is used widely in restaurants, schools, hotels, hospitals, homes and many other commercial and residential buildings.
Flamex PF fire retardant spray has been tested to the following standards: ASTM E-84, NFPA 255, UL 723 and NFPA 701
Flamex PF flame retardant spray can be applied as is by spraying or immersing. In order to be effective there must be 5-10% increase in the weight of the fabric, if the material is synthetic such as polyester, a heavier coat may be needed. Since all fabrics have a different density a small test should be performed by the utilization of a small flame (butane lighter). Hold a 4″ X 12″ piece of the treated material vertically and apply the flame to the lower portion for 10 seconds, remove the ignition source. The flame must go out within 2 seconds. (This test is similar to the small-scale NFPA 701 field test).
Apply to interior unfinished wood at the rate of 125 square feet per gallon to achieve a Class A or 200 square feet per gallon to achieve a Class B rating. Use low-pressure spraying equipment. brush or roll. After treatment, a 24 hour conditioning period is necessary before testing FLAMESPREAD 25 AND SMOKE DEVELOPED 95 ON WOOD.
