FireFree 88 Intumescent Paint for Time-Rated Assemblies & Drywall



Firefree 88 ("FF88") is a water-based, non-toxic, thin-film intumescent fire retardant and resistant paint fully tested to provide fire ratings required by the International Building Code (IBC) for wall assemblies, floor/ceilings assemblies, roof ceiling assemblies and individual structural members, including SIPS.

Use Firefree 88 when you need a 1 or 2 hour time rating on certain projects.

FF88 has been shown to withstand temperatures of up to 2000° Fahrenheit for up to two hours. FF88 has been tested to multiple standards worldwide, including ASTM E119 (1 and 2 hours), FM 4975, ASTM E 662-97, ASTM E 3675-98, ASTM E 162-98, ASTM E 1354-94, ASTM E 814, ASTM E84, Room Corner Test including UBC 8-2, NFPA 286, UBC 26-3 (Part 1 of FM Class 4880), BS 476 in England, AS 1530.3, 1530.4, in Australia, EN 13501 in Poland, and SISIR door test standards in Singapore. Ff88 is listed and labeled by FM Approvals, listed and inspected by ICC, classified by UL and accepted by NY MEA.

Firefree 88 is easy to use. FF88 is a high quality, non-toxic, water based resistant (matte) paint with a smooth architectural grade finish (white, flat), excellent adhesion and durability. It is easy to apply by brush, roller or sprayer. In most cases, FF88 will be self-priming, thus resulting in additional cost savings. It is non-toxic, has low odor and may be tinted.

FF88 can be applied to most substrates used in the construction and transportation industries including wood, gypsum board (sheetrock, plasterboard), lathe and plaster, concrete, masonry, embossed/pressed metal tin, thin gauge metal, galvanized steel and aluminum, spray polyurethane foam (SPF), fiberglass, carbon fiber, plastics and other composite materials. Ff88 can be used in exterior applications if covered by the Firefree Exterior Topcoat ("FfE").
