How Fire Retardant Coatings Work

The primary function of a fire-retardant coating is to slow the spread of fire. They reduce the amount of heat that reaches a substrate and delay ignition. For this reason, they are popular for covering wood materials that might otherwise catch fire easily. 

Benefits of Flame Retardant Coatings

Fire retardant coatings increase fire resistance and protection against temperatures up to 2200°F. They also help protect against blast impacts and open flame damage. This helps reduce strain and wear on coated components, prolonging their useful life.  

Types of Fire Retardant Coatings

Various types of flame-resistant coatings exist, including oil, water, and epoxy solvent-based products. Oil and water-based products apply easily similar to standard paint. Spray resin coatings offer superior protection to substrates including wood, concrete, and metal. They require a trained applicator. 

Builders use fire-retardant paint in residential and commercial construction to protect structural members and preserve building integrity. The IRC requires flame-resistance barriers in certain building designs.

Applications for Fire Resistant Coatings

Fire retardant coatings are suitable for many different substrates, including metal, wood, and composites. Our flame retardant paint requires specific application to provide adequate protection on flammable substrates. Applicators should carefully follow application instructions to ensure success. 

Our ability to create custom coatings allows us to serve a wide range of industries where components face exposure to high temperatures and flames. Industries using our fire-resistant coatings include the following:

  • Aerospace: Aerospace components, including launch and exhaust systems, face extreme heat. Our fire-resistant spray coatings offer substrate protection that helps reduce metal strain and premature failure.
  • Firearms: Repeated firing causes heat buildup on firearms. Additionally, the initial propellant burn can cause damage to metallic components. Fire-resistant coatings reduce wear from these elements and limit the risk of damage.  
  • Military and Defense: Defense contractors and all branches of the military use thermal flame-resistant coatings to protect military equipment from high heat, shrapnel, and explosions. 

We are also a premier supplier to the hearth and BBQ industries. Contact us to learn more about how our fire retardant spray coatings can benefit you.
