1500° Series® FireGuard E-84® is a latex (water base) intumescent fire retardant paint. This product is designed for use on interior gypsum, wood, OSB, polyurethane foam and foam-board surfaces where it is either necessary or desirous to reduce the surface burning characteristics of the substrate and provide a thermal barrier hourly rating. It dries to a flat matte finish, having the appearance of a conventional flat paint. In the presence of heat or flame, the coating puffs up (intumesces) and forms a thick sponge like cellular foam layer. This foam layer insulates the substrate reducing the penetration of heat, thus retarding the flame spread and prolonging structural collapse.
All surface preparation should be carried out according to good painting practices. Remove all loose peeling or powdery paint from previously coated surfaces. All dirt, grease, oil, wax, and other foreign matter MUST be removed with a detergent, rinse surface thoroughly with clear water and allow to dry to the touch. Repair all cracks, holes, and other surface irregularities. Allow to dry, sand lightly, and prime exposed raw surface areas. All glossy or smooth surfaces should be dulled with sand paper.
1500° Series® FireGuard E-84® can be applied by brush, roller, airless or conventional heavy duty spray equipment. Mix thoroughly with a ½” electric or air driven drill with a slotted paddle or jiffy blade for a minimum of 5 minutes. Apply in multiple coats to achieve the wet mil thickness necessary for the job requirements. Allow each coat to dry to the touch before applying next coat. Do not thin or field tint this product. Do not apply in temperatures below 50° F (10°C) or are above 110 F (43 C).
