Flame Control 60-60A Thermal Barrier can be applied over exposed SPF  insulation in roofing assemblies, drop ceilings and other inhabited spaces.

The coating is approved for use in occupied spaces where the SPF insulation must be separated from the interior by a 15-minute thermal barrier.

The low-VOC, latex coating can be applied over exposed SPF insulation in roofing assemblies, drop ceilings, garages, warehouses, basements and other inhabited spaces, according to the company.

Flame Control 60-60A can be applied using a brush, roll or sprayer, and dries to a flat finish.
