True or false: HUD publishes fire resistance ratings of archaic building materials.


True or false: Mixed metal oxide pigments produced at high temperatures are used for fire resistance in coatings.


True or false: The NFPA has a standard measuring the functional durability of spray-applied, fire-resistive coatings.


True or false: UL publishes the technical manual Standard Practice for the Testing and Inspection of Intumescent Fire-Resistive Materials.


True or false: According to a PaintSquare blogger in speaking about the Grenfell Tower fire, fire-resistive tests “serve as comparative, and not predictive, tools.”


True or false: UL (Underwriters Laboratories) publishes inspection manuals dealing with spray-applied, fire-resistive coating materials.


True or false: FRCMs is the acronym for gypsum-based or cementitious fire-resistant materials.


According to ASTM, what is the function of a fire-retardant coating?


What organization publishes fire-resistance data on archaic building materials?


True or false: Sprayed fire-resistive materials are intumescent coatings.


Cementitious, fire-resistive coatings for unexposed structural steel in buildings often contain which of these materials?


What organization has a standard measuring the functional durability of spray-applied, fire-resistive coatings?


What is the acronym for gypsum-based or cementitious fire-resistant materials?


True or false: Fire-resistive, intumescent coatings sometimes have epoxy and sometimes acrylic resin systems.


True or false: Fire-resistive and fire-retardant paints perform the same function.


True or false: UL will not approve an intumescent, fire-resistive coating material if it is topcoated.


Cementitious, fire-resistive coatings for unexposed structural steel in buildings often contain which of these materials?


True or False: Fire resistance ratings of materials protected with intumescent coatings are expressed in the (degrees Fahrenheit) temperature that the coating can withstand before it fails.


True or false: UL will not approve an intumescent, fire-resistive coating material if it is topcoated.


What organization publishes the technical manual Standard Practice for the Testing and Inspection of Intumescent Fire-Resistive Materials?


True or false: Some fire-resistant, intumescent coatings are used on wood substrates.


True or false: Primers and topcoats used with intumescent, fire-resistant coatings, as well as the intumescent coatings themselves, require UL approval.


True or false: Fire-resistant, intumescent coatings for steel are applied in one to three coats.


Which of the following statements about intumescent, fire-resistive coatings is not true?


Cementitious, fire-resistive coatings for unexposed structural steel in buildings often contain which of these materials?


True or false: Intumescent, fire-resistive coatings cannot be applied with plural-component spray equipment.


Accordiing to UL's Fire Resistance Directory, how is a coating categorized when its purpose is to reduce flame spread?


True or false: To achieve good esthetics and fire resistance on exposed structural steel in building interiors, cementitious spray-applied fire resistant materials should be used.


True or false: UL will not approve an intumescent, fire-resistive coating material if it is topcoated.


What organization publishes inspection manuals dealing with spray-applied, fire-resistive coating materials?


True or false: Primers and topcoats used with intumescent, fire-resistant coatings, as well as the intumescent coatings themselves, require the approval of Underwriters Laboratories.


True or false: The fire-resistance ratings of intumescent coatings are expressed in terms of hours, indicating how long the coating can adequately protect the substrate in a fire.


What is the main reason that thin-film intumescent fire-resistant coatings are preferred in clean-room environments rather than cementitious fireproofing?
