Description

Fire Retardant Treatment For Wood and Timber

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment is a water based, clear solution that soaks into wood to leave the appearance of the timber virtually unchanged. Applied by brush, roller, spray, dip or vacuum method it achieves Euroclass B (BS Class 0) Fire Propagation and Spread of Flame fire protection on solid timbers. Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment can be used inside or out and the fire protection remains effective for the lifetime of the wood surface.

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment soaks into the woods surface, without leaving a clear glaze on top like a varnish. It then dries with virtually no evidence of the wood ever been treated, allowing you to keep the woods natural beauty. Zeroflame Treatment does not require over coating however it can be over coated for decoration and/or protection if desired (care should be taken that the fire retardant properties are not compromised).

Directions for Use

Substrate

The substrate must be clean, dry and free from contamination; existing coats must be removed by stripping or sanding.

Application

Each square metre of wood requires 270ml (360ml in the case of Cedar) of Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treament. Application method, site conditions, absorption rate of the timber, etc. will all impact on the number of coats it takes to achieve the require coverage rate. Do not mix with other solutions, stir well before use.

Use brush, roller, spray (use appropriate mask when spraying), dip or vacuum method.

After treatment of the substrate with Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment, the appearance of the timber should be virtually unchanged.

Please Note: For both internal and external use it is recommended that a sample of the substrate is coated to establish both absorption properties and possible colour change, particularly when used externally without a protective finishing coat as moisture may create a change in colour.

Care must be taken to comply with the coverage rate, including allowance for wastage, as inadequate application will affect the fire protection.

Drying Times

  • Coats should be applied at intervals of 40-60 minutes.
  • Drying time is 24 hours @ 20°C.
  • Fully cured after 7 days.
  • Minimum temperature for application is 5°C.
  • Do not apply to frozen substrate.
  • Maximum fire retarding capabilities acheived after 7 days.

Please Note: Drying times are dependent upon the absorption characteristics of the substrate and drying conditons. At low temperatures and/or conditions of relative humidity, drying times will be extended.

Overcoating

Where a final decorative finish is required, substrate must be fully dry before over-coating. We advise checking the moisture content of the substrate prior to application and applying the top coat to the manufacturers instructions. A small area of the substrate should be tested for compatibility before the full, final coat if applied. Contact the Technical Department for more information prior to overcoating Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment.

Protection Period

Fire retardant properties will remain effective for the lifetime of the substrate.

Certification

Each tin has a certificate application form on the back of the label. To receive a 'Certificate of Supply' for your purchase, after application of the product, simply complete the form on the label and send to the stated address and a certificate will be returned to you within 7-10 working days.

questions Michael on 01/11/2019
Question: 

You mention the test for Thermowood - I need to use the zero flame product on Thermowood (Pine) please can you forward the test information. Thanks

Answer: 

This has been sent to your email address.

questions David on 21/10/2019
Question: 

Hi, I'm planning to install approx 14.5 sqm (4.8 x 3m) of bare softwood, probably pine, t&g cladding to one wall and the ceiling of my porch. Building Control require the timber to be treated to be fire retardant class 1 standard. This will have a decorative top coat of water based paint. Is Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment, 5L, suitable and is there minimum thickness for the t&g cladding? Many thanks, David.

Answer: 

Without performing an indicative test on the thickness of timber you wish to use, it is impossible to know how thin the wood could be and still achieve class 1. 14mm is the requirement with this product for Class 0.

questions David on 18/10/2019
Question: 

Hi can Zero Flame be used to treat wood that has already been charred in the Japanese Sugi Ban style? If so does it still achieve Euro class B?

Answer: 

Yes, Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment does provide Euro Class B on charred timber.  As with any solid timber substrate, as long as it soaks in the Zeroflame Treatment it will provide the fire protection.

questions Stewart on 18/10/2019
Question: 

I note an earlier question about the use of this product to protect a fireplace lintel where the response was that it would not 'insulate' the lintel. Can you clarify what is meant by this and the implication? I would like to use the product to protect a fire surround of timber that has previously been painted but has been thoroughly stripped. The heat from the stove is causing the timber surround to reach temperatures in excess of recommended safe levels (circa 70 degrees C) and I am looking for a product to protect the surround from the radiant heat.

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment protects timber aginst the spread of flames not against heat. The product doesn't provide insulation ie will not prevent the timber from heating up if it is too close to the heat source. Unless you use a heat resistant paint which wil not flake off if exposed to high temperatures then it will not resolve the problem I'm afraid.

questions Michael on 30/09/2019
Question: 

Hi, Is this a one coat application process ?

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment needs to be applied at a rate of 270ml per m² of bare timber (360ml per m² when applying to cedar), whether you achieve this application rate in 1 coat or more doesn't matter, as long as it is achieved. Applying by spray (i.e. knapsack sprayer, HVLP, etc.) usually allows applicators to achieve the required coverage rates in 1 coat, applying by brush/roller would usually take more, i.e. 2-3 coats.

questions Julie on 25/09/2019
Question: 

Please can I have a copy of the test certificate? We have used the product on an oak annexe and building control want more details. Unfortunately the packs were discarded before I could take a note of the batches. do you have records for batches purchased in July?

Answer: 

These have been forwarded to your email address as requested.

questions simon reid on 05/09/2019
Question: 

we have a situation where cedar shingles (wood tiles) are required to provide surface spread of flame to class 1 (european class B). Can this be achieved with your zero flame product applied insitu? what is its lifespan and is its efficacy affected by it being applied to the outside only? i.e. we cannot cover the underside of the tiles. because of the nature of the tiles the total thickness when laid is approx. 18-20mm

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment will achieve Euroclass B on cedar when applied at a rate of 360ml per square metre. It is fine to be used externally and will remain effective for the lifetime of the timber. With regards to whether application to the top surface only will be sufficient or not would be a matter for your authority to comment on.

questions Adam on 19/08/2019
Question: 

Please, do you have a test certificate for the effect of this product on Thermowood? Thanks.

questions Livia Qing Wang on 25/06/2019
Question: 

We need to coat 5mm thick tongue and groove boards (Southern Yellow Pine) covering the ceiling of our new kitchen extension, to BC class 0 or better. Currently the boards have not been treated in any way and we don't want the appearance to change. Is this product suitable?

Answer: 

Assuming that 5mm is a typo (this is VERY thin for T&G) and that infact it is considerably thicker than this - 50mm for example, then as long as the timber is bare Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment would be ideally suited to this application.

questions Nick Wager on 13/06/2019
Question: 

Do you have a copy of the test certificate. We are looking for a fire retardant treatment to apply to solid European Oak wall panels which are required to meet B.s1.d0 ( class 0 ) Thank you.

questions Harry Loh on 30/04/2019
Question: 

is this product suitable for use on painted doors? in a single home dwelling. I'm looking for something that works as a clear coat on painted doors.

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment can be applied to bare timber only, not timber that is previously painted or varnished. We would recommend you apply Envirograf Door Upgrade Paint System to assist in upgrading internal doors to 30mins fire protection which can then be over painted with a topcoat of your choice.

questions darren on 24/04/2019
Question: 

will this effect the finish of white ash

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment makes very little change to the appearance and finish of the timber. We do recommend you try a small area first and allow it to dry to ascertain you are happy with the appearance and finish before coating the whole area.

questions Gary Alner on 15/04/2019
Question: 

Does the certificate you supply with Zeroflame fire retardant treatment meet the requirements of building control. Can I apply the product myself or do I need to have a specialist contractor apply and certify the work?

Answer: 

You need to ascertain whether Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment meets the requirements of your building control officer for your particualr use. The product achieves BS EN 13823 & BS EN 11925-2 Single Burning Item Euroclass B-s1-d0 (equivalent to UK "Class 0" BS 476 Parts 6/7). A certificate is issued after use by completion of a simple form on the back of the label on the container. Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment does not require specialist application.

questions Marina Elwes on 13/03/2019
Question: 

Hello, I wonder if your clear product is suitable to treat OSB in a domestic setting and achieve fire rated status.

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment is not suitable for use on OSB. If you require a clear coating and wish to acheive BS Class 1/0 and/or EN Class B then we would recommend Thermoguard Fire Varnish BS Class 1/0 & EN Class B System.

questions Peter Campbell on 10/01/2019
Question: 

I am looking at using Zeroflame to coat exposed ties in a timber truss. Will I be able to paint this with water-based acrylic paint? Thank you.

Answer: 

Assuming the areas in question to paint are solid, bare timber, waterborne stains or varnishes can be used over Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment as long as they are compatible, non-flammable and will dry. We always recommend to try a small sample area first to ensure the stain does not react with the Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment and will dry out.

If you are intending to paint a colour then we would instead recommend applying Zinsser B-I-N, followed by Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint. This will ensure no bleeding through of knots, stains, tannins, etc. from the wood into the final colour coat. Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint can be either left as a white finish or overcoated. When overcoating use only waterborne latex paints, applied at a total dry film thickness not exceeding 35 microns.

questions AVN on 09/01/2019
Question: 

I would like to enquire about the suitability of this product( or another recommendation for the following use) Interior Douglas Fir timber, to be finished with lye and soap or lye and oil (some version of linseed or a similar variant). The above treatment is a standard natural treatment for wood and is used extensively in most Scandinavian countries. The lye is a very weak solution (link removed) or similar. The oil specs are as follows (link removed). Ofcourse we would do a trial, just wanted to ascertain any chemical side effects/interactions between the two that you would be aware of Many thanks AVN.

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment would not be suitable but the manufacturers of Hydron Nu-Flame Clear Impregnation have advised they see no issue using the suggested products with theirs, subject to a successful trial as you have recommended.

questions Stephen Kracher  on 10/12/2018
Question: 

would your product be suitable to fireproof a lintle for a fire place?

Answer: 

Assuming the lintel is timber, solid and bare then yes Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment could be applied to it. However it is important to note that this will not 'insulate' the timber from heat, the lintel could still reach unsafe temperatures and the proximity of this to your fire should be checked by a professional on site who can confirm suitability.

questions me on 03/12/2018
Question: 

Hello I wanted to know if a wood water proofing treatment such as berettin and sodolin would be suitable to use over this product?

Answer: 

Waterborne stains or varnishes can be used over Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment as long as they are compatible, non-flammable and will dry. We always recommend to try a small sample area first to ensure the stain does not react with the Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment and will dry out.

questions Jason on 06/11/2018
Question: 

Hello, I am assuming this can be used on a standard external grade treated timber?

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment has been tested on multiple timber species, the most popular being; Pine, Spruce, UK Larch, Siberian Larch, Western Red Cedar, Oak and Thermowood. All these woods when the treatment is applied to the bare timber at the specified spreading rate achieved Euroclass B-s1-d0.

questions Danni mitchell on 02/11/2018
Question: 

Hello, would this product work on a timber cabin constructed of 60mm thick Scandinavian pine? If so what volume would you suggest purchasing. The cabin is 18ft by 20ft and 8ft high. Kind regards

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment is suitable for use on bare pine and would achieve Euroclass B. The measurements given of your cabin total approximately 57m², but we would assume that you have some areas to deduct from this such as windows, doors, etc. Each 5L will treat 18.5m² and 20L 74m².

questions JERRY on 14/08/2018
Question: 

i am considering using this product for class 0 treatment to T and g softwood cladding on a vaulted barn ceiling , the ceiling is nearly 200m2. To apply 2 coat to both sides of the cladding its going to cost over 5.5k including vat just for the materials!! can i just treat the room side and apply 1 coat ?

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment needs to be applied at a rate of 270ml per m² of bare timber (360ml per m² when applying to cedar), whether you achieve this application rate in 1 coat or more doesn't matter, as long as it is achieved. Applying by spray (i.e. knapsack sprayer, HVLP, etc.) usually allows applicators to achieve the required coverage rates in 1 coat, applying by brush/roller would usually take more, i.e. 2-3 coats.

Based on 200m² you would require 55 litres (73 litres if cedar), what needs to be protected on your building can only be advised by your authority for the project, so you should refer to them for clarification as to whether both sides need to be treated for example.

questions Martin  on 13/08/2018
Question: 

Hi, Can this product be applied and protect a oak beam from heat approximately 300mm above a multi fuel burner, Thanks

Answer: 

The Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment will protect the beam from burning but not from charring and blackening.  

questions Neville Horton on 08/08/2018
Question: 

Hello In context of a garden shed. Most t & g wood cladding is supplied new already treated with anti rot/pest coating. Will the Zero flame still work if applied over it? Thanks Neville

Answer: 

Most timber in this situation is tanalised to protect against rot. Tanalising does not generally seal the timber so the Zeroflame Treatment can still penetrate. It is always good practice to drop some water onto the substrate to test how absorbent it is. If water can soak into the timber the Zeroflame Treatment will also be able to penetrate.

questions Luke Price on 23/07/2018
Question: 

Is this product suitable for 12mm plywood external plywood cladding?

Answer: 

Yes, Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment can be applied to plywood but will only achieve Class 1 spread of flame and not Class 0/Euroclass B. Please note, some external plywoods are waterproof and will not allow the Zeroflame Treatment to penetrate. This can be tested by brushing water on the plywood to see whether it will soak in or not.

questions clive griffiths on 19/07/2018
Question: 

Can this product be used on 9mm cladding and achieve the fire safety

Answer: 

No, on pine the face of the timber needs to be a minimum of 14mm and on spruce a minimum of 18mm to achieve Euroclass B (BS Class 0) Fire Propagation and Spread of Flame fire protection.

questions Stephen OReilly on 27/06/2018
Question: 

A section of the underside of a wooden staircase , which in located in a understairs cupboard ,needs to be fire proofed , as a electrical fuse box is located in the cupboard . Would your product be suitable for this ? Thank you

Answer: 

Assuming the timber in question is bare and natural (i.e. not man made MDF, plywood, OSB, etc.) then Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment could be applied to upgrade the surfaces to Euroclass B (BS Class 0) Fire Propagation and Spread of Flame fire protection. However, usually this sort of location would require 30 or 60min protection, if this is the case you would instead need to look at Thermoguard Timbercoat 30 & 60 Minute System.

questions Jacqui Watson on 09/06/2018
Question: 

Is this the correct product for fire protecting chestnut cladding on the external wall of my extension?

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment achieves Euroclass B (BS Class 0) Fire Propagation and Spread of Flame fire protection on bare, solid timbers. You must ensure this level of fire protection is acceptable to your authority for the requirements of your project before use. If this is not the correct level of protection required by your authority please contact our Technical Department who will be able to provide an alternative product/system for you.

questions Dean Smith on 24/05/2018
Question: 

We are using recently felled Larch which has only been airdried is this product suitable. Kind regards Dean

Answer: 

The timber should have less than 20% moisture content. We would also recommend you do a drop test with water to see whether it can soak in. As always we would recommend you do a small test area before coating the full project to confirm suitability.

questions Howie on 19/04/2018
Question: 

Is this suitable for tanalised wood?

Answer: 

Yes, tanalising timber doesn't normally seal it so the Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment can still soak in. If in doubt, try a drop test with water.

questions roula on 04/04/2018
Question: 

can you please advise on fire retardant product that could be used for solid maple wood floor . product shall keep the wood aspect unchanged. kind regards, Roula

Answer: 

We don't know of a problem with maple wood but as long as the maximum density is no more than 780 kg per m3 then it should be fine. A drop test with water will also show whether Zeroflame Treatment can soak in. We recommend you try a small area first to assess if there is any colour change.

questions LENA BALESI on 06/03/2018
Question: 

All leaseholders have to have a fireproof door in a block of flats built in the 1930ies. They all have to be an exact replica of the existing doors which are hollow. Would it be possible to strip the doors and apply your fire retardent paint to bring them up to 30 mins resistance time? With many thanks Lena Balesi

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment achieves Euroclass B Fire Propagation and Spread of Flame on solid timbers, not 30 minute protection. The products we do have to provide 30 minutes fire resistance to doors (Door Upgrade Kits) cannot be applied to hollow doors.

questions Jonathan Potts on 04/03/2018
Question: 

Can you please advise on the wood stains that are compatible with the Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment. I am looking for the specific manufacturer and product names that have been tested with Zeroflame.

Answer: 

Dedicated topcoats for Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment are being looked at but at present the advice is any waterborne stain can be used over Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment as long as it is compatible, non-flammable and will dry. We always recommend to try a small sample area first to ensure the stain does not react with Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment and will dry out.

questions paul sharpe on 06/02/2018
Question: 

Can this product be used on a boundary on featheredge cladding?

Answer:

questions Dave Budworth on 29/03/2017
Question: Hi, Can Zero Flame be used on cedar cladding to achieve Building Regs requirements for non combustible materials on Dormer roof structures? If so, does the product need to be applied to both sides of the cladding (i.e inner and outer faces)? and would the product effect the natural weathering of cedar cladding over time if applied to outer faces? Thanks
Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment achieves Euroclass B (BS Class 0) Fire Propagation and Spread of Flame fire protection on solid timber. You will need to refer to your authority to ensure this is the level of fire protection they are expecting you to achieve. Due to it being a Surface Spread of Flame rating usually only the sides exposed to fire would need to be treated. Finally, this product would NOT stop or affect the natural weathering process of the wood.

questions graham walsgrove on 15/03/2017
Question: Hi could you please tell me if your products have undergone third party testing and if so by whom?? It's just your product has been specified for a Building Regulation application and we need to know if it's been tested Many thanks

questions Michael on 24/11/2016
Question: Would this be suitable for a fire surround/mantle? The fire Stove sides will be 100-120 mm from the upright beams. So need some kind of retardant to resist heat!
Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment would certainly increase fire resistance of the timber surrounding your fire but it can't be used as a substitute for the correct installation and required distances of your fireplace.

We have written an extensive article on Painting the Walls around a Fireplace or Multi Fuel Stove which can be found HERE.

questions roger lister on 21/07/2016
Question: will this product fireproof building felt if not any ideas would be helpful Regards Roger

Question: Hi can zero flame be applied ontop of a impregnation fluid to a log cabin
Answer: Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment can be applied to pressure treated timber as long as the fluid used was water based.
questions Wayne Lovelock on 25/01/2016
Question: 

Does Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment need to be applied to bare wood in order for it to be effective?

Answer: 

Yes it does, it is designed for bare softwood and hardwood and relies on penetrating into the wood. It will only achieve BS Class 1 on veneer and plywood laminates due to the bonding glues hindering penetration. Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment also is not suitable for wood-derived particle boards or similar such as MDF and OSB due to it not being absorbent enough.

questions Jonathan cooper on 23/01/2016
Question: 

Could Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment be used on top of painted, unsealed timber or would the wood need to be sanded back first? Second, could you paint over the top once applied rather than applying stain/varnish?

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment is a penetrative fluid that must be applied to porous, bare timber in order for it to soak in to the wood to be effective. It is not suitable for application over any previous coatings, these must be removed by stripping or sanding prior to application. Once Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment has been applied and allowed to sufficiently dry (usually around 7 days), you may apply certain stains, varnishes and paints for decoration purposes (contact our Technical Department for details of coatings that are suitable).

questions Rob Smith on 08/01/2016
Question: 

Is Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment suitable for use on Bamboo? This is for use in a hotel.

Hi, we've just made some large flowers (out of willow withies, lantern tissue and pva) for decor to go inside a marquee at Glastonbury, can you tell us if Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment would be suitable to coat them with as a fire retardant?

Answer: 

No, the Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment would not be suitable but our 1012 Fire Retardant Solution would be.
