New Intumescent Protects SPF from Fire

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Comment | More

Specialty Products Inc. introduced Flame Seal Spray-Applied Thermal Barrier, a thermal barrier-equivalent fire-resistive coating system for application over spray polyurethane foam (SPF) systems.

The product is described as a spray-applied, thin-film intumescent paint for use as a thermal and ignition barrier over SPF insulation in commercial and residential buildings.

The company said the product functions as an accepted thermal-barrier equivalent coating system over spray-foam systems where a thermal barrier is required by code, and stated that the coating has been tested as a system with closed-cell spray polyurethane foam. An ICC-ES report (ESR-2072) has been issued.

The company noted that national building codes require the use of a qualified thermal and/or ignition barrier to protect SPF insulation. The product is reported to pass the UL-1715 room corner-fire test, and has received ICC approval (ESR-2072). The product is also reported to comply with a number of national and international building codes, including the International Building Code (IBC), International Residential Code (IRC), International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), BOCA National Building Code, and others.

The product is applied with commercial airless spray equipment, and functions as a thin-film fire-retardant coating—18 dry mils for a 15-minute thermal barrier, and 7 dry mils for an ignition barrier.
