International Fire-Shield Tips the Scales On Its Competition

International Fire-Shield, Inc. has been involved in the Fire Retardant Market place for over 30 years and we have over 100 years of combined staff experience in products, applications, testing and Code Compliance Standards in the US.

The manufacturers of competitive Fire Retardants constantly publish claimed attributes of their products via the web and in their literature.

We have been asked to provide a comparison of our products and services to some of these products on the market.

Before choosing your company's fire retardant supplier, International Fire-Shield, Inc. recommends that you ask for supporting documents of their claims so that you may limit your potential liability.

Can the Manufacturer provide the following Documentation?

  1. 3rd Party Classification for their products (UL, ULC, ICC)
  2. Non Toxic and Non Allergencic Test Reports for Dermal Irriration, Oral Toxicity and Combustion Toxicity (An MSDS does not require or provide the resultant values of these tests)
  3. Independent Flammability Tests for natural and synthetic textiles as well as lumber and plywood to meet Class "A" Flame Spread Ratings.
  4. Interior and Exterior Durability Test Reports (Interior-CSFM Title 19 section 1258 Accelerated Aging/ Exterior ASTM 2898)
