We maintain a Registered Applicator listed and in good standing with the NY City Fire Department and the California State Fire Marshal’s Office.


Quality Control: Treated Assemblies, Columns and Beams shall be randomly tagged with a stamp visible only under ultra-violet light with an alpha-numeric Tracking and Monitoring code. The code shall reference facility address, date of treatment, the amount of product applied, wet mil thickness for each coat, final Dry Film mil thickness, Certified Applicators name and hourly rating of the assembly, beam or column. An ultra violet light shall be issued to the Building Superintendent or Owners designated representative. Stamp shall not be applied to any items scheduled to be top coated until final top coat has been applied. In addition a visible fixed tag stating the hourly rating shall be installed in areas designated by the Owner for visual reference by Inspectors and Authorities Having Jurisdiction.

1500 Series™ Firefree88® is a premium intumescent fire resistant coating tested to comply with fire ratings performance prescribed under the International Building Code (IBC). These standards involve (i) fire resistant testing which measures a product's ability to prevent fire penetration over a period of time, such as ASTM E 119, FM 4975, ASTM E 662-97, ASTM E 3675-98, ASTM E 162-98, ASTM E 1354-94, ASTM E 814, BS 476, AS 1530.3 AS 1530.4. EN 13501-1, and (ii) fire retardant testing such as ASTM E 84 and Room Corner Test standards including UBC 8-2, NFPA 286, UBC 26-3, measuring a product's ability to limit flashover. It is listed and labeled by FM Approvals, a division of FM Global, and classified by Underwriters Laboratories (U/L), listed by CA SFM Building Materials and accepted by NY Material and Equipment Acceptance Division.




Use on properly prepared uncoated, primed or previously painted surfaces. 1500 Series™ Firefree88®  can be applied to numerous materials, including wood, gypsum board(sheetrock, plasterboard), lathe and plaster, concrete, masonry, embossed/pressed metal tin spray polyurethane foam (SPF) and other composite materials for 1 and 2 hour ratings. As a result of its' superior fire resistant performance, it can provide significant material and labor cost reductions, resulting in significant savings when compared to other construction options in situations such as construction, both new, retrofit and defective, (residential, commercial, industrial and government), insulation and transportation. Recommended for historic properties, schools, health care (hospitals, assisted living), apartments, condominium, high-rises, hotels, stores, restaurants, oil and solar facilities, government facilities, military applications and facilities, transportation (aerospace, aviation, light rail, maritime, energy). 1500 Series™ Firefree88® is a water-based paint designed for interior use (please contact us for exterior applications). It comes in a white, flat, smooth architectural finish and can be tinted. Alternatively it can be top coated with most paints to achieve the desired color, texture and finish.
