Stir Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint thoroughly until free of lumps. Substrates must be dry (moisture content must not exceed 15%), free from dust, wax, grease, dirt, resin, etc. Existing coatings with poor adhesion must be completely removed. Coatings containing lime, chalk or lithopone should be removed.


Airless Spray

  • Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint should be applied undiluted
  • Airless spray equipment with pressure ratio 30:1
  • Hose diameter not below 3/8"
  • Whipline 1.5-2m. NW6 may be used
  • Recommended tip size 0.34-0.66mm or 0.17-0.027"
  • Hoses must be used only for water based coatings


  • Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint should be applied in supplied viscosity


Object temperature not below +10°C, to max. +40°C, relative humidity max. 70%.

Application temperature shall be at least ≥ 3°C above dew point. In case relative humidity exceeds 80%, special measures must be taken to prevent condensation forming when applying. If the moisture content of the substrate exceeds 15%, the coating is unlikely to dry and blooming may occur. Moisture content should be at, or near that anticipated when in use.


At approx. 20°C temperature and 65% relative humidity approx. 6 hours. Lower temperatures and higer relative humidity may extend drying times. Allow 48 hours before overcoating.


Immediately after use, clean the equipment with water.
