How to Choose Fire Retardant Paint

Anytime you're painting a commercial building, you should consider the option of fire retardant paint. Fire retardant paints are decorative, protective coatings designed to reduce the spread of flames in the event of fire. These paints stop the spread of a fire, slow the spread of a fire, reduce a fire’s intensity, and reduce the smoke a fire produces. This product saves lives! You know you want this kind of protection, the only question left is which exact product you buy. It is time to choose fire retardant paint! How do you do it?

Choose Fire Retardant Paint

We recommend you choose fire retardant paint based on the substrate you'll be painting. This is the easiest way to begin shopping. There are specific types of fire retardant paint made for each substrate, like Contego HIGH SOLIDS Fire Retardant Paint/Primer for steel and WT-103 Clear Coat Fire Retardant for wood. There are fire retardant paint products made for drywall specifically, making it a great addition to a new building project. There is even fire retardant spray that is ideal for fabrics.

From here, you'll want to find the right brand and product size. Perhaps it is as simple as choosing an option with the right quantity of paint or spray. For example, there is BanFire Fire Retardant Spray for Fabric. One quart treats up to 100 square feet of fabric. This means it is perfect for small projects like curtains and drapes, wall hangings, uniforms, areas around wood stoves, and other limited areas that need to be treated for fire protection. What if you have a lot more than that to spray? Fire Block Flame Retardant comes in a gallon bottle and treats approximately 400 square feet. If you're shopping for a hard substrate, like steel, you can buy an entire 5-gallon bucket of paint!
