Fire Block - Flame Retardant

The Class 'A' Retardant You Simply Spray on and let dry!
Fire Block

Fire Block™ is an environmentally-friendly fire retardant spray and dip, which is used to retard fire in all Class A materials, such as drapes, wall hangings, furniture, boxes and packing materials, fabrics and uniforms, even construction materials like framing, roof decking and cedar shakes. It's perfect for schools, daycares, eldercare, restaurants, hospitals and more. Unlike many products on the market today, it is specially formulated to be non-toxic, with no PBDE's or neurotoxins that can cause long-term damage to both humans and the environment.

Fire Block™ forms a thermal insulation barrier that prevents dangerous flames form spreading. Fire Block also inhibits the development of toxic hydrocarbon smoke. And it is safe enough that it can be applied while people are present. It will remain effective until it is washed out. It can even be mixed with latex paint to prevent flame spread.

Fire Block™ is very easy to apply. Just spray it on and let dry. You can use a quart sprayer, garden sprayer, backpack sprayer, even commercial spraying/painting equipment. You can also dip fabrics, wring them out and let air dry. You must get the material wet for maximum effectiveness, but the product is non-staining. Just keep a record of when you treated the material, along with the MSDS and Fire'z Off Product Sheet, and you should be in good standing with the fire marshals.

There is no single product that is effective in every circumstance. Always check with your fire marshal first to see if he will accept Fire Block™ for your application. Tested according to ASTM E84 standards by SGS US Testing, Fire Block™ is rated Class 'A' for flame spread and smoke developement on building materials.

The Problem with Other Retardants...

Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, or PBDE's, are commonly used as fire retardants as well as in manufacturing of building materials, electronics, furnishings, plastics and textiles. But since the 1990's, scientists have questioned the safety of PBDE's because they accumulate in the body, and are not passed through as waste. People are exposed to low-levels of PBDE's through ingestion of food and by inhalation. PBDEs bioaccumulate in blood, breast milk, and fat tissues. People are also exposed to these chemicals in their domestic environment because of their prevalence in common household items.
