Can fire retardant be washed off?

Fire retardant paint is the best way to protect a structure, whether it be a commercial building or residential home, from being engulfed in flames. Paint is able to be used both indoors and outdoors, on drywall, wood, steel, and pressed tin. You can even use fire retardant paint on plastic!

These substrates, especially if outside, have a tendency to get wet. Let's say you want to paint your roof and deck because you live in an area known for sudden and catastrophic wildfires. It's obviously going to rain on your home at some point. Does this mean all of your hard work is washed away? No!
