Our Burn Demos

Plastic Case Burn Demonstration

This burn test is to show how a Global Fireproof Solutions Certified Intumescent Coating provides fire resistance to a polypropylene electronic component case. Test runs for 15 mins, then the case is flipped and a new test is performed on the uncoated side in order to compare the difference.

Polypropylene Flame Demonstration

This video burn demonstration shows two samples of pickle tank material (PP). The sample on the left has been coated with GFSI intumescent coating. The sample on the right has no coating. Propane torch flames at about 2000 º F are applied to the samples. Initially, the coated sample smokes copiously, as the intumescent char is formed. This smoke is non-toxic and provides an early warning for ignition. At two minutes, the uncoated sample is actively melting and burning. In less than 6 minutes, the uncoated sample has burned completely through, and would cause spillage of the tank contents in a real-life situation. The melting plastic is forming a pool fire beneath the uncoated sample, which could be exacerbated by spilled liquids, creating an extremely dangerous situation for firefighters.

Fabric Sample Demonstration

The two videos above both show samples of fabric that have been treated with our preferred Fire Retardant Solution for Fabrics. As you can see the samples do not ignite, which in a real world example could mean the difference between a fire staying on the ground or climbing a curtain to upper levels or the ceiling thereby slowing the spread of the fire and potentially preventing escape routes from being blocked by flame to anyone still inside the structure.

PVC Vinyl Sheets

In this video demonstration we have 2 sheets of PVC Vinyl sheets. The sample on the left is coated with GFS Certified Intumescent Coating while the sample on the right is untreated. In less than 3 seconds the untreated sample is burning and producing black, toxic smoke, while the treated sample on the left melts after a few seconds but does not continue to burn or produce any toxic smoke.
