Our Certified Applications have the ability to meet and exceed the standards for upgrading unrated wood assembles to Fire Retardant Treated Rated (ASTM 2768 ASTM E84 30 min Extended) or 1-hour rated (ASTM E119) assemblies.
Our Factory applications use a proprietary application method to impregnate wood and engineered wood products without the use of pressure process.
For existing and new construction, GFS Certified Intumescent and Fire-Retardant Applications can be used on multiple wood floor/ceiling configurations to achieve a higher fire rating.
The Intumescent and Fire Retardant Solutions that we apply have a neutral PH and are not harmful to copper or steel piping, PVC, CPVC, metal hangars or strapping. Our Fire Retardant has a clear finish or can be tinted upon request, and our Intumescent Coating has an attractive, matte white finish and has an optional top-coat that we can apply if the material is to be painted over.
