1500° Series FRV-WB Technical Datasheet
1500 Series FRV-WB CLASS “B” WATER BASE FIRE RETARDANT POLYURETHANE VARNISH
1500 Series FRV-WB is a water base, fire retardant polyurethane varnish, with a semi-gloss sheen. It is designed for use on all new or previously coated wood surfaces (except floors). The varnish will not leach or turn white on aging or washing.
For application to all wood surfaces, where a reduction of surface burning characteristics is required to comply with building code requirements.
Schools, Colleges, Nursing Homes, Child Care Centers, Hospitals, Penal Institutions, Apartments, Hotels, Factories, Warehouses, Retails Stores, Restaurants, Utilities, Railroad and other Transportation Companies, Oil and Chemical Installations, Military Installations, and other facilities where fire retardant coatings are required.
Class “B” fire rated on wood when applied in two coats at 450 sq.ft./gallon per coat. Dries by water evaporation to a flexible, semi-gloss finish. Does not leach (lose fire retardancy) on exposure to high humidity. The coating is somewhat thermoplastic. Precaution must be taken when two coated surfaces are touching each other, to prevent sticking and blocking.
