Ignition sprays and paints are products added to stop a perceived hazardous material from igniting into flames. The use of paint and spray foam ignition barriers can delay or prevent the combustion of spray foam insulation materials.
Ignition Barrier vs Thermal Barrier
Although they both look to delay or prevent fire, ignition barriers and thermal barriers are slightly different. Ignition sprays and paints are products added to certain materials to provide a foam barrier of fire protection, white thermal barriers are physical barriers placed between spray foam insulation and the rest of the interior living space.

Ignition Spray or Paint? Choosing the Right 5 Minute Ignition Barrier
Both ignition sprays and paints provide excellent and long-lasting coverage. However, the type of ignition barrier you choose can depend on the material you are applying it to.
