Frequently Asked Questions
Do Fire Resistant Sprays Stop Fires?
In reality, nothing stops a fire. Every fire starts some where. While there is no foolproof way to prevent a fire, a fire resistant spray can greatly lower the rate at which it spreads and aids in preventing the surface from catching fire in the first place.
Hot ashes blowing on neighboring properties contribute geatly fo the spread of fire. When homeowners use fire retardants on their properties, the heated ashes are much less likely to ignite anything they fall on, thus diminishing the spread of fire.
How Do Fire Retardant Sprays Work?
When exposed to fire, a material that has been treated with fire retardant sprays forms a carbon char that acts as a shield that protects the area. The material will become black, but inhibits the spread of flame, which will limit total damage and life-threatening risk. It also provides you more time to react and put out the fire.
How can I Increase the Fire Resistance of Wood?
Any wood in or around your building is an excellent source of fuel for a fire. This is why wooden structures and materials need to be made heat resistant. Applying a fire retardant product to the wood susbtrate creats an additional barrier between the highly flammable wood and the flames. Other benefits of utilizing a fire retardant on the wood include decreased smoke production and longer ignition time, giving addditional time for people inside to escape during a fire. Even a few extra minutes is incredibly valuable in a structure fire.

What Is a Fire Retardant?
A fire retardant is a substance used to slow down or prevent the spread of fire. Fire retardants are often used on combustible items in building structures (i.e wood, plywood, wood products) as well as in clothing and other materials.
There are many different types of fire retardants, and they work in different ways. Some fire retardants create a barrier between the fuel and the oxygen, while others work by absorbing heat or cooling the fuel.
Fire retardants can be used alone or with other fire safety measures, such as sprinklers or fire doors. Fire retardants are typically tested using the ASTM E84 standard, which is given classification ratings of A, B ,C or D.
