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.

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.
Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint has been tested to EN 13501-1:2007 on timber and composite wood substrates, European classes B-s1, d" and B-s2, d0 being obtained. Building Regulations classify C-s3, d2 as being equivalent to Class 1, and B-s3, d2 equivalent to Class 0. Zeroflame Fire Retardant Paint exceeds both these classifications on timber surfaces when applied according to the manufacturer's recommendations.

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.
Wet film thickness (WFT: 270 microns; Dry film thickness (DFT): 170 microns.
- 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 higher relative humidity may extend drying times. Allow 48 hours before overcoating.
Immediately after use, clean the equipment with water.
