Benefits of a Global Fireproof Solutions Fire Retardant Penetrant Application

  • Visibility - GFS's standard application is tinted red for easy visual recognition; can be clear (un-colored) upon request. Additionally, the standard application also includes the above stamp certifying the application has been done in conformance with Manufacturer, ICC, and IAPMO standards.

  • Time - GFS's process is significantly less time-intensive than impregnation; turn times are reduced to 1/10th or less of what it may take for pressure treatment.

  • No Design Value Loss - When impregnating any piece of material using a pressure process, there is an inherent loss in structural integrity. GFS's process does not negatively impact the structural integrity of the material being treated. Due to our processes not altering the strength of the material, our applications can be approved for a wide variety of materials and building elements.
