Description

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint is a waterborne fire protection coating for interior use. This coating has been successfully tested on a variety of timber substrates to BS 476, Classes 0 and 1, which achieves B-s2, d0 classification. It is suitable for use over sound existing coatings and can be over-coated with standard latex paints where a decorative finish is required. This single-pack, waterborne product is extremely simple to use.

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint can be applied to reduce the ignitability of soft and hard wood and other wood derivatives, i.e. plywood, chipboard, fibre insulation board, hard board, also on veneering ≥ 12mm thickness. Insulates against heat, checks fire, prevents propagation of fire and diminishes flue-gas density and flue-gas temperature. For interior use only, not suitable for surfaces exposed to mechanical stress.

questions BRIAN ELBOURN on 15/08/2019
Question: 

Hi, Can this paint be used over previously painted timber and then coated with a standard paint ( to achieve required finish colour) and still achieve Class 0 spread of flame? Also how can we certify to Building Control that it has been done? Many Thanks Brian Elbourn

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint has been successfully tested on a variety of timber substrates to BS476, Classes 0 and 1 which achieves B-s2, d0 Classification. It can be over-coated with waterbased latex paints applied at a total dry film thickness not exceeding 35 microns and a Certificate is included in each container.

questions Kenny Mackinnon on 17/07/2019
Question: 

Hi, is 3.7m2 per litre what is required for a single coat, or will 1 litre cover 2 coats to 3.7 square meters? Also, is this suitable to apply on top of OSB3 that has already been painted with Matt emulsion? I require class 1 surface spread of flame protection. Many thanks, Kenny

Answer: 

3.7m² per litre allows for the 2 coats required and yes it is suitable for application to previously painted OSB as long as the existing paint is sound and well adhering and the area in question is in an internal, dry environment.

questions Marten Ward on 14/02/2019
Question: 

I have a wooden store cupboard situated to the side of a staircase which is designated as a potential escape route in the event of fire. Would this product give me 30 minute protection as specified by our local fire service if painted inside and out side the cupboard?

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint achieves BS Class 1/0 Surface Spread of Flame protection, if 30 minute fire resistance is required we would instead recommend Thermoguard Timbercoat 30 & 60 Minute System.

questions Francis  on 13/02/2019
Question: 

I have a loft space which is fitted out with 50mm tongue and groove pine cladding. It’s not painted, but I would like to fire proof it then paint in my chosen colour. The Zero Flame paint seems to fit what I need. Can I ask your advice before purchasing. Yours Francis

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint achieves Class 1 and Class 0 on timber substrates so if this level of protection is what you require then it would be suitable. We do suggest priming pine with something like Zinsser B-I-N first to prevent bleeding/staining through of knots, etc.

questions Becky on 19/12/2018
Question: 

Is the paint very thick? I.e. if applied over a woodgrain would the grain still be visible beneath the layer of zeroflame and a top coat of coloured emulsion?

Answer: 

The total DFT (Dry Film Thickness) of Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint after the required 2 coats should be 180 microns. To give some perspective to this, a normal single coat of emulsion would usually be in the region of 20-30 microns DFT on average.

questions Said Attia on 27/10/2018
Question: 

I want to know if this product can be used in concert wall or cement surface

Answer: 

We're assuming you mean concrete wall, so instead to achieve BS Class 1/0 and EN Class B surface spread of flame protection we would recommend Thermoguard Wallcoat BS Class 1/0 & EN Class B System.

questions Colin on 23/10/2018
Question: 

Hi, My fire officer wants confirmation that an FR paint like Zeroflame when applied to FR Euroclass B MDF 18mm, will maintain the substrates Euroclass B rating. Can you confirm this will be the case is i use the 2 coat on 1 coat Zinsser mentioned in your 04/09/19 question answer to Brian?

Answer: 

In the previous answered question you are referring to we have assumed that the customer wants to upgrade normal, non-fire rated MDF to EN Class B-s2, d0. In your instance, if your MDF already has the level of fire protection you require and you simply wish to decorate and maintain the level of fire protection we would instead recommend Thermoguard Wallcoat Smoke & Flame Retardant Topcoat. This product is available in a Matt or Eggshell finish in nearly all RAL and BS colours and can be applied directly to the prepared MDF without the need of a primer and does not require anything to be applied afterwards.

After use of the product certification can be applied for by completing a short online application HERE.

questions Brian on 04/09/2018
Question: 

How many coats on bare mdf for zero flame paints

Answer: 

We recommend Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 or similar as a primer on MDF before applying 2 coats of Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint undiluted at 7.4m² per litre/per coat.

questions graham jones on 17/07/2018
Question: 

I have a circular hollow steel column 2.5m high. Building control insist I paint it with a paint to class 0 fire rating. Is there a paint you can recommend.

Answer: 

Class O would be an unusual request for steel, we would suggest checking with your building control as usually they would instead require 30min, 60min, etc.

If this turns out to be the case then we would recommend Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+.

questions Craig on 10/07/2018
Question: 

Do you sell a 1 litre tub?

Answer: 

No, 5lt is the only pack size available in this product.

questions David on 23/06/2018
Question: 

I want to use Zeroflame on a new internal timber roof. I plan to use Zinsser BIN for the wood knots. Does the rest of the timber need to be primed or can Zeroflame be applied directly to the bare wood?

Answer: 

No, Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint can be applied directly to bare timber.

questions paul on 05/06/2018
Question: 

i need a clear fire resistant paint for my decking its bare wood at the moment which do you recomend and can i put a wood stain over it thanks

Answer: 

Assuming Euroclass B (BS Class 0) Fire Propagation and Spread of Flame fire protection is required, for decking we would recommend Zeroflame Fire Retardant Treatment be applied to the 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 the timber is allowed sufficient time to dry after application and 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 Elizabeth Fisher on 02/05/2018
Question: 

Hi, I'd like to use Zeroflame fire retardant paint so I can apply a decorative paint colour finish to some interior timber cladding. Will this meet building regs? Can you issue a certificate of supply for Zeroflame paints like you do for Thermoguard Timbercoat? Many thanks.

Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint achieves Class 1 and Class 0 on interior timber surfaces, if this is the level of protection you require then it can be overcoated with waterborne latex paints, applied at a total dry film thickness not exceeding 35 microns. After use, certification can be applied for by completing and returning the Certificate Application Form included on the back of the label on the tin.

questions Paula on 20/03/2018
Question: 

Hi, When using a decorative paint over the top of Zeroflame you mention using a 'latex' paint. Do you mean any water based paint / emulsion or something more specific? Many thanks, Paula

Answer: 

The data sheet for Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint states 'When overcoating use only waterborne latex paints, applied at a total dry film thickness not exceeding 35 microns.' This is because it was a latex based paint that was used in the fire test. Zinsser Perma-White Interior is an example of a latex based paint. However, in some countries what we call an acrylic is called a latex. Zeroflame recommend a waterborne paint, preferably latex based is used.

questions Paul on 10/10/2017
Question: Is this product suitable for mdf ?
Answer: 

Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint can be used on MDF to achieve Class 0 spread of flame. It is recommended that Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 is used as a primer to ensure good adhesion before applying the Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint.

questions sam on 11/05/2017
Question: can this product be used on glossed painted surfaces?
Answer: 

Yes as long as the surface to be painted is first thoroughly abraded to provide a suitable key for the Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint to adhere to.

questions Donovan Cook on 07/12/2015
Question: 

Once applied, what is the life span of Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint before needing to be applied again to ensure BS 476 parts 6 and 7 are maintained?

Answer: 

The fire protection provided by Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint remains effective indefinitely as long as the coating is not damaged. Any areas of damage, wear, etc. can be remedied by the re-application of Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint to the affected area to restore protection.

questions arwel on 13/10/2015
Question: 

Is Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint half hour fire resistant?

Answer: 

No, Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint upgrades timber surfaces to European Standard EN13501-1:2007, achieving B-s1d0 Classification which is a superior equivalent to our British Standard 476 Classes 0 & 1. If you require 30 or 60min protection please contact our Technical Department on 0113 2455450 for suitable systems.
