Flamex PF (penetrating formula) Can Make All The Difference!
Flamex PF is a clear, highly effective post-treatment indoor fire retardant penetrant. When used on porous wood, it will provide a Class A or B rating. This product is also very effective on porous fabrics. Flamex PF penetrates the material and becomes part of it's molecular structure. When the properly treated material is subjected to an open flame, Flamex PF will reduce the flame spread and / or self-extinguish the flame . Flamex PF is non-toxic and non-hazardous to the environment and simple to apply.
Can I Use Flamex PF For My Interior Furniture, Drapes Etc?
Yes!! Flamex PF is used for interior applications such as: draperies, furniture, paper, straw, redwood, cedar, Douglas fir, etc. When used on textiles, we recommend retreatment every 4-5 years. This product is used widely in schools, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, homes and many other commercial and residential buildings. One coat system. All testing was performed using single-coated materials. Class "A" rated.
Flamex PF-II-- Stopping Little Fires-- BEFORE They Start
Flamex PF-II can help small fires, like a smoldering cigarette near a treated wall, to extinguish, before it erupts into a full flame!
- Laboratory tested for exterior durability in accordance with ASTM D5401.
- Will not alter the structural integrity of wood as FR pressure treated wood does.
- Functions as a wood preservative.
- Protects exterior and interior woods such as: covered bridges, cedar shake roof shingles, decking, and structural lumber, utility poles, etc.
- Once cured for 48 hours, the treated material may be painted with most latex-based paints.
Flamex PF-2 fire retardant spray is a water-based, post-treatment. Flamex PF-2 is a interior/exterior fire retardant and wood preservative that penetrates the wood pores and bonds with the cellular structure. The penetrant protects the substrate by developing a self- extinguishing reaction in contact with an open flame. When properly applied, the wood shall have a Class A rating. Flamex PF-2 contains polymers that maintain the fire retardation for up to five years for exterior applications. Flamex PF-2 is non-toxic, non-combustible, non-carcinogenic, easy to apply, and contains no PDBE’s.
Flamex PF-2 is a Class A rated flame retardant with a Flame Spread of 25 and Smoke Developed of 70 on wood. Since it penetrates and forms a molecular bond with the substrate, the life of the application shall be indefinite for most interior applications. For exterior applications, it is recommended that Flamex PF-2 be reapplied every 3 – 5 years.
Contego Intrumescent Paint... The Closet Thing To A Round-The-Clock Fireman In Your Barn!
Contego Intumescent Paint is a High Solids, full-bodied water-based acrylic latex intumescent paint designed to protect a wide range of building materials including structural steel, aluminum, dimensional lumber, manufactured wood products, trusses, drywall, spray polyurethane foam insulation, HDPE wall panels, concrete, plaster, solid core doors and more. This product may also be used for conduit, decking and cladding. Can achieve up to a 3 hour rating on steel structure and a 2 hour rating on wood.
How Do I Apply Contego?
Contego High Solids is designed to be applied by spray application and should only be applied by brush or roller for touch up purposes only. Contego High Solids should not be applied when the relative humidity exceeds 80% or the surface to be coated is less than 50 F (10° C) or less than 15 F (9° C) above the current or forecasted dew point. The product is best applied when ambient temperatures are between 50 F (10° C) and 95 F (35° C). Once applied and cured, lower or higher temperatures should not be a problem. On combustible substrates such as dimensional lumber, manufactured wood (Oriented Strand Board, Particle Board, Plywood, etc.), Polyurethane foam, and drywall (GWB) a primer is not required but may be useful if:
Dimensional Lumber The wood is very old and/or dry and would likely absorb too much of the Contego coating.
Manufactured Wood The substrate is very old and/or dry or if the resin content is unusually high.
Polyurethane Foam The foam is soy-based or made from other organics that emit a vegetable oil.
Drywall (GWB) The drywall has been previously painted with oil-based (alkyd) paint or if you’re not sure.
Note: On structural steel and other metals such as aluminum, copper, brass, or composites, – a primer is always required.
No exceptions have been observed regarding what kind or brand of primer can be used. Even inexpensive shop primer has shown no incompatibilities. However, doing a test patch is always recommended with any new combinations of primer and our product since it is impossible to have tested every product from every manufacturer.
So What Is The Drying and Curing Time?
As with any water-based acrylic latex coating, drying time is always a function of ambient temperature, ambient humidity and how thickly the coating was applied. However, at 60°F (15° C) with a relative humidity of 70%, a 20 mil (500p.) wet coat should be dry to touch within 3 hours, completely dry in 6 hours and dried hard enough to handle in 8 hours. While our specifications call for a 72 hour cure time, the product(Intumescent Latex Paint) is active as soon as it is hard dried.
DO NOT apply additional coats until you are sure the underlying coats are completely dry. Applying additional coats on top of product that still has moisture may cause the finish to crack and, if enough moisture is trapped under a surface film, blistering and delamination can occur. A top coat is recommended and permitted after the total amount of required thickness of Contego has been applied and completely dried.

How Long Does It Take To Dry?
Every climate is a little different. Drying depends on humidity level and air temperature. Most situations would have a dry time of just within 24 hours..
Does It Change The Color Of The Paint It Is Sprayed On?
If the surface has already been painted, you must use either a fire retardant paint or a fire retardant varnish over it Our fire retardant water based varnish is clear and our fire retardant paint is either black or white (which can be tinted).
How Long Does This Protectant Last?
For interior applications, our fire retardant penetrant coatings are permanent. Our top coat paint and varnish lasts 10 – 15 years. Our exterior coating will last 5 years and then must be reapplied.
Can I Paint Another Color Over The White Contego?
Yes... just allow for proper drying time and you can paint over any color that you like!
